Coffee lovers, now is the time to buy a latte for a good cause as every handcrafted latte you buy at Starbucks on Dec. 1 is a chance to give back to the Global Fund in honor of World AIDS Day.
December 1 is World AIDS Day, and every year (RED) hosts a shopathon that helps save lives. On the (RED) website, the organization talks about the many collaborations they have going on to help raise money for the Global Fund, while also helping people get ready for the holidays. And one of the companies taking part in this shopathon is Starbucks.
For coffee lovers already heading to Starbucks for a caffeine fix on Dec. 1, every time you snag one of their handcrafted lattes, the company will donate $0.25 to the Global Fund. And considering this is the 12th year that they have participated, we know that they take their commitment to this program seriously.
Since the first year they took part in the (RED) shopathon, Starbucks has donated more than $15.5 million to the fight against AIDS. And once again, they are helping to bring attention to World AIDS Day with the help of their lattes.
If ever there was a time to indulge in a latte at Starbucks, today is the day. From their Matcha Green Tea Latte to the Caramel Brulee Latte, each of these handcrafted drinks is a chance to donate to a worthy cause.
It’s the season of giving, and these lattes are giving back in the best way possible. And this is a chance for us to do the same thing.
Of course, if Starbucks is not your thing, there are plenty of other ways to support the Global Fund thanks to (RED), which has a list of all this year’s partnerships and products for sale that will help to raise money in the fight against AIDS.
This World AIDS Day you can make a difference, even if it is just by grabbing a handcrafted latte at Starbucks.
