I saw the following on Facebook this morning:
Starbucks goes (RED).
Join us for World AIDS Day. On Dec 1, buy any hand-crafted beverage and we’ll give 5¢ to the Global Fund to help save lives in Africa.
5¢ is better than nothing; but really, this campaign will help Starbucks more than it will help AIDS research- maybe a better campaign would be the following:
On Dec 1, skip Starbucks, and give the $5 you would spend there to the Global Fund to help save lives in Africa
