Sobya't Thawra - The revolution woodstove

For the past 60 days, the country of Lebanon has witnessed the emergence of an unprecedented political movement driven forward by widespread popular protests calling for sweeping economic and political changes.  Protestors have been living in tents in the capital’s downtown area and are not only enduring collisions with corrupt political parties but also the cold weather which will only get worse in January and February. Many NGOs and initiatives have been supporting the protestors through supply of food and other needs and we, Bits to Atoms, have also contributed from our side by designing and providing a heating/ cooking stove which we’ve called “Sobya’t thawra” (Which translates to: the revolution stove). The outdoor woodstove is a big success; it is providing warmth and hot food for the surrounding tents residents, warming up their bodies, hearts and stomachs but also reinforcing their bond which is the most important characteristic.  It is locally manufactured by using laser cut black steel and the assembly only takes about an hour and is done on site by using only wedges (a centuries old technic). In addition to its heating capabilities, the stove has an oven, two niches for coffee/tea kettles and functions in rainy weather. 
The stove is accessible to any person, irrelevantly of any politics, religion, age and race, which perfectly reflects the Lebanon we are aiming for and hoping to achieve through this revolution.
SO NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP! as many other tents are in great need of extra heating. We offered the first one and we will take care of the design, transport and assembly of the new ones, so we just need your help with the cost of the black steel and laser cutting. 

By helping protestors we are encouraging them to keep going and not give up. Lebanon has been oppressed by the corrupt government for over 30 years and it is now time for a change. By supporting us you are supporting an entire country not a small group of individuals. With the upcoming Christmas season, dropping temperatures and demonstrators’ situation worsening every day, we are calling for anyone who is willing to support our cause to donate any amount of money; even 5 dollars would be highly valued. For only 270 USD a stove can be offered, it’s a small amount with a great impact!
LEBANON NEEDS YOUR HELP!
