A great way to get things fixed is with a little help from some friends. One organization that is devoted to doing this is Repair Café. They help to set up locations where people can meet to fix things together in a community environment. In many cases, these meeting spots are at schools, libraries, or religious centers. Anyone can bring their broken items or clothes to one of these locations. Volunteers with repair experience are often present, and they are willing to help people make repairs.

要把東西修好的一個好辦法就是讓朋友幫你一點忙。維修咖啡館是個致力於做到這一點的組織。他們幫忙在社區環境中建立讓人們可以見面一起修東西的地點。在許多情況下,這些會面地點會是學校、圖書館或宗教中心。任何人都可以將他們損壞的物品或衣物帶到這其中一個地點來。經常會有維修經驗豐富的志工在場,他們樂於幫助人們進行維修。
