Starbucks Coffee Company announced that on World AIDS Day (December 1), Starbucks will make a five-cent U.S. contribution to the Global Fund for every hand-crafted beverage sold at participating locations in the U.S. and Canada.
In one year in partnership with (RED), Starbucks has generated enough money to buy more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa. Overall, (RED) partners and events have generated $140 million and these funds have supported AIDS programs in Africa that have reached more than 4 million people.
If customers are unable to make it to their Starbucks on World Aids Day, they can still be a part of the fight against AIDS in Africa by visiting www.starbucksloveproject.com. There they can contribute a drawing to the “Love Gallery” and for each drawing Starbucks will make a five-cent U.S. contribution to the Global Fund, up to 1 million drawings.
