The company announced Thursday it would give five cents to the Global Fund of the RED foundation for each hand-crafted drink it sells on Saturday in the United States and Canada.

Not to be ungrateful or anything, but I have to say that I'm not impressed.

Based on a quick google search for "how many cups of coffee does Starbucks sell in one day", this company sells approximately 5 millions cups daily.

If they're going to donate a puny nickel for every cup that they sell (anywhere between $4.25 and $7.00 each) then their donation will be about $250,000.

Something is something, but they could and should do better than that.

But you are being ungrateful, Blanche -- you are....................

They COULD give jackshit, but they aren't.  They are giving something........   So, why "should" they do better - what would be enough in your eyes?  I don't get this attitude?  They are damed if they don't and and they are damned if the do......

How many other American, British, French, Australian, Canadian etc large corporations are donating a portion of their proceeds?

Crickets

At least they are doing something
