Starbucks has teamed up with Wyclef Jean to assist in the Haitian relief effort, explained by Wyclef in this video. Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada are now enabling customers to make monetary donations at store registers, with no purchase necessary, to benefit the American and Canadian Red Cross organizations for a limited time. Additionally, The Starbucks Foundation will also donate $1 million (U.S.) from The Starbucks Foundation to the American Red Cross efforts to help Haiti.
Haitian-American Jean has been working tirelessly to raise support and funding for the country. To learn more about his ongoing efforts, go to www.yele.org.
