Today is World AIDS Day and you can help support AIDS awareness and research by buing a cup of coffee.
In support of World AIDS Day, Starbucks is contributing 5 cents from every beverage sold to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS in Africa.
While I don’t support a mega-corporate titan like Starbucks (the boy and I prefer going to Captain Buzzy’s in Church Hill), they are contributing to a good cause – although 100% of sales (instead of 5 cents) would be more ideal.
At least the money they raise is doing some good.
In just 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.
