Starbucks Sees (RED) On AIDS Day!

REVIEWS | | December 1, 2008 at 8:11 pm
It is AIDS day and it was a pleasant surprise to see Starbucks jump on the Product (RED) bandwagon and give some proceeds of drinks on this day to the AIDS fund. AIDS is a topic close to my heart, especially coming from South Africa, and hubby from India (the two largest countries impacted by AIDS). On the Facebook (virtual) event many chastised the coffee house for giving so little and some felt it as not worth it, but I commend Starbucks. Too many people complain about people doing too little to have an impact and in return do NOTHING themselves. I would be lying if I did not admit that I wish they were giving more than 5c, but I am happy that they are doing something. Have you done your “something” today?

    I would agree Starbucks is very much in tune with the community. Not sure if there are many more corporations who are focused on greater causes like AIDS, Education, and Poverty etc.
