Charity Shenanigans

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

Here’s the link where you can donate: http://www.theglobalfund.org/en/donate/
