Starbucks teams up with Lady Gaga for Cups of Kindness fundraiser drinks

Some of us may feel like we were born to be Starbucks lovers, Lady Gaga fans, or–better yet–both.

With an aim to spread the message of the value of kindness and to raise money for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, Starbucks and the singing superstar have teamed up to create the Cups of Kindness collection.

From June 13 to June 19, Starbucks will donate 25 cents from each of the three special Cups of Kindness drinks sold in Canada and the US to the Born This Way Foundation.  This money goes towards programs that support youth wellness and empowerment by fostering kindness, improving mental health resources, and creating more positive environments.

Lady Gaga worked with Starbucks to select the three drinks for the Cups of Kindness menu. Just dance your way down to your fave ‘bux and order one of these:

  • Violet Starbucks Refreshers
  • Ombre Pink Starbucks Refreshers
  • Matcha Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers

The drinks are all non-dairy, and are each under 150 calories for a Grande size.

“I adore the entire collection and I instantly fell in love with the Matcha Lemonade,” Lady said in a media release.

Talk about a good romance!

No matter how many of these pretty–and pretty special–drinks Starbucks sells, the coffee chain has committed to make a minimum $250,000 contribution to Born This Way Foundation.
