Lady Gaga is pretty busy these days filming a movie with Bradley Cooper (which you can be in, BTW) and Starbucks has been just as buzzing with their ever-growing menu of snazzy drinks (hello, Unicorn Frapp, Mermaid Frapp, and Pink Ombre yumminess). But now the two powerhouses have teamed up to bring you Cups of Kindness.
Starting tomorrow, June 13, Starbucks and Lady Gaga want to encourage everyone to do one simple thing: Be kind. “We’re healthier and happier when we live our lives with compassion and our communities are stronger when we treat one another with generosity and respect,” said Lady Gaga. “Born This Way Foundation and I are so excited to partner with Starbucks to help inspire positivity and love through the Cups of Kindness collection.”
Featuring four delicious drink options — our beloved Pink Drink and now a Violet Drink (remember the Purple Drink?), the Ombré Pink Drink, and a new Matcha Lemonade — Starbucks will donate 25 cents from each beverage sold at participating Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada through June 19 to Born This Way Foundation. With Starbucks committing to a $250,000 contribution at the very minimum, the money will go toward programs that “support youth wellness and empowerment by fostering kindness, improving mental health resources, and creating more positive environments.”
And while any of the four delicious drinks will help to raise funds for an awesome cause, Gaga herself has a fave, saying, “I adore the entire collection and I instantly fell in love with the Matcha Lemonade.” Sounds like we’ll have to give it a taste or two.
Will you be grabbing an extra Starbucks order to help raise money for the Born This Way Foundation? Let us know @BritandCo!
