| On 18, Nov 2016

The world is crumbling over the hashtag #CupforBen. Why? Because the story behind it is quite amazing.

English father Marc Carter tweeted a picture of a cup, a Tommee Tippee Cup, and he’s looking for a similar one because the cup is already out in the market.

Why? Why not just buy another cup?

It’s because Marc’s 14-year-old son, Ben, who is suffering from severe autism, won’t drink from cup aside from the blue and green that he tweeted, which had deteriorated through the years of use. Ben has been using it since he was two.

Marc reasoned that Ben got hospitalized before because of dehydration.

Marc got an overwhelming response with seven people already sent their similar cups. Much better, Tommee Tippee in North America said the company has been doing the best it can to look for the similar cup. The UK counterpart also joined in for the search.
