For the eighth year, Starbucks is partnering with (RED)® to help fight AIDS. On World AIDS Day 2015 (Tuesday, Dec. 1), Starbucks will make a 10 cent (U.S.) donation for every handcrafted beverage sold in participating U.S. and Canada stores.
Starbucks donations go to the Global Fund to help finance HIV/AIDS programs in prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services. Since partnering with (RED) in 2008, Starbucks has generated more than $13 million for the fight.
Last fall, several Starbucks partners (employees) spent five days in Rwanda visiting hospitals and facilities that are changing lives with Global Fund dollars.
