Barako Ako

Starbucks has already kicked off with their annual Project Spark Hope.

24 cups of coffee! 24 beverages to glug down before you officially donated something to their charity!

Good news for coffee afficionados since they now have a workable reason to drown themselves with their favorite concoction other than the clichéd "para hindi antokin". Good news for Starbucks, themselves, too since apparently this marketing trick has attracted a HUGE following for a HUGE number of reasons... for being certified true coffee addicts, for posing to be one, or to just ride on to the Pinoy bandwagon mentality (me! me! me!).

Whatever the reasons may be, what I like about it is that at least it "clicks" for a cause. How can it be easier to donate to a charity than sprawling dead-wasted from caffeine-induced high?

O-di ba. So yeps, I got my coupon with my first sticker this morning.

Game na!

naku, i'm not feeling the spark hope project of starbucks anymore. i realized they're giving so little for the foundation for every Php2000+ worth of planner. pero i love the christmas beverages of starbucks. it sucks that, for me, they suck all year round because toffee nut latte is not always available.

ang alam ko, di tataas ng P10 per beverage ang napupunta dun sa project. ewan ko kung tsismis lang yan.
