My name is Rodney Hines. I work on the Starbucks Global Responsibility team focusing on community efforts. This week a tragic event happened to our world neighbors in Haiti. Many lives have been lost and massive wreckage realized by the earthquake. Many of you have let us know that you would like to help.
We’re making it easy for you to donate to the Red Cross in participating Starbucks stores across the U.S. and Canada. No purchase is necessary, just give the barista the monetary amount you would like to donate and they’ll gladly ring it up with 100% of the donations going to the Red Cross*. You can even donate with your loaded Starbucks Card. The Starbucks Foundation will join your support by donating one million dollars (U.S.) to the American Red Cross in support of this effort.
Haitian-American musician Wyclef Jean has collaborated with Starbucks to make an appeal to the Global Community about the crucial needs of the Haitian community. Click to watch his message:
Join us and express your love for the people of Haiti, visit Starbucks or go directly to the Red Cross website at www.redcross.org.
