How much do they drool over our Glorious Federal Government? So much that they are going to help them with making National Slavery Service look like the “hip” thing to do.
Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) and HandsOn Network are joining to launch the “I’m In!” campaign, an initiative to make it easy to participate in the President-elect’s call for national service. In participating Starbucks stores across the nation, the American public will have an opportunity to pledge five hours or more of community service toward a local volunteer opportunity of choice. Starbucks will honor each person who pledges with a free tall brewed coffee beginning Wednesday, Jan. 21 through Sunday, Jan. 25.
So cool!! I can get free Starbucks coffee and pledge my allegiance to our Glorious Saviors.
“Five hours is just 25 minutes a month for a year, two afternoons at a food bank creating care packages, a day reading to children at a hospital or in a park planting trees,” said Vivek Varma, senior vice president of Global Affairs, Starbucks Coffee Company. “We hope to help spark a new spirit of volunteerism by exceeding a million pledge hours and HandsOn Network is the perfect partner to allow our customers to join us in a renewed national commitment to community service.”
Just 5 hours? Wow, I’d feel like such a Great American. I could pat myself on my back, and tell people I am so cool that I “volunteered” to help the Government!! Yeah!!
Hey Starbucks? Asking me if “I’m in”? Yeah, umm No. Volunteering, I’m all in favor for, “National Service”? Not so much. So, I will be adding this to the list to why I still do not buy your coffee.
