This morning, I went to Starbucks to buy my Grande Peppermint Mocha - the little treat that I give myself every Saturday to celebrate the end of a good work week. Starbucks, a Lovemark of mine, had an idea to help create jobs for USA by partnering with Opportunity Finance Network to provide financing to community businesses that need help.
The Starbucks Foundation is donating the first $5,000,000 to launch this project. I encourage you to go to Starbucks, buy your favorite holiday latte, donate $5 and get a wristband to wear proudly as a symbol of your support. Enjoy your coffee!
