Today Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks announced that he would like us not to donate to Washington and to find a different way to donate for the growth of our country. He has started a drive with bracelets at each Starbucks that 100% of the profit will go to a nonprofit that will provide small business loans. In another interview this morning with Howard Schultz, I heard him say “the old way of doing business just to make money is selfish and unacceptable today”. I feel that this is just the beginning of us seeing how some of the wealthy CEOs will be attempting to make our society better with the tools that they have. That really inspires me, and I hope it inspires others to further use the tools that we all have to better our country and our community.
WE ARE ALL INVOLVED!!!
I acknowledge my love for Starbucks and here are other stories that Project Kinect has done on Starbucks.
