Today celebrates the next phase of our hugely successful relationship with Starbucks and msnbc’s Morning Joe that launched last March.
Since our relationship began, Morning Joe and Starbucks have encouraged viewers and customers to get involved in local community initiatives and support the needs of public schools through 99Papers.org.
Starbucks and Morning Joe now make it even easier to show support! Starting October 4, Starbucks retail stores and participating grocery stores will feature specially marked bags of Gold Coast Blend® – Morning Joe Edition coffee with $5 99Papers.org donation stickers* for customers to direct funding to the public school classroom project of their choice, including projects in their own neighborhood. Through this effort, we hope to inspire customers to take action and get involved in change for their neighborhood public school.
We hope this relationship will generate support for thousands of US public schools, and get thousands of loyal coffee drinkers involved in improving public education to boot!
*Up to $600,000, restrictions apply, while supplies last. Offer only available through codes found on specially-marked packages of Starbucks Gold Coast Blend® – Morning Joe Edition coffee. We will donate $5 for every code entered through 12/31/2011, or until $600,000 has been given. Enter your code at www.99papers.com/starbucks then choose a classroom project to receive the $5 donation. Codes expire on 12/31/2011 at 11:59 pm ET.
