The coffee giant has agreed to donate 5 cents from each sale of three special RED drinks – Peppermint Mocha Twist, Gingersnap Latte and Espresso Truffle – to the global fund to fight Aids, tuberculosis and malaria.
“RED is coming to a corner near you thanks to Starbucks,” said Bono. “I’m very excited to be able to say that. It’s pretty mind-blowing to think that millions of people can buy RED going about their daily lives and in doing so raise millions of dollars to fight AIDS in Africa. That’s not a bad hit from your caffeine.”
The new drinks will be available at Starbucks stores in the US and Canada between November 27 and January 2.
