Petition to Starbucks

Starbucks: Donate a portion of their proceeds from the 2014 Planners to the Typhoon Victims

I was browsing thru my News Feed the other day. I was in a state of shock and dismay as I witnessed, post after post the aftermath of the Typhoon Yolanda. It reminded me of how I was in that very same situation back when Reming hit Bicol in 2006. In the midst of my browsing I came across one post from a page about an Unboxing of the newly-announced "Starbucks 2014 Planner". I was quite offended by the untimely release of such thing that most of us consider as a "luxury" to have. I thought of the mechanics on how to get the planner since I'm already aware on how to avail such - You just have to be able to collect 18 stickers from Starbucks beverages. That's when I felt worse because I thought of all the people sipping on their Choco Java Chip Frappuccinos or Gingerbread Latte Frappe just to be able to collect stickers for the planners while somewhere in Visayas, some thousands of people are wailing for potable water. Just plain, lukewarm and stock water. I felt like I needed to do something about this. And here I am now, my friends, suggesting that for every 18 stickers that customers complete, just the cost of 1 sticker will go to the survivors of the Typhoon Yolanda. This will cost around 150.00 only but guys, 150.00 per person who will get a planner is not bad! In fact it's going to be a great help and will surely go a looong way! Starbucks' facebook page 's cover photo encourages us all to "Create Wonder, Share Joy" . I think this will be the best oppurtunity so that they'll really be able to live up to what they're trying to promote. Let's understand what the essence of Christmas truly is. Let's help Starbucks realize that we can indeed create wonder and share joy by hitting two birds with one stone - buy yourself a drink and give a little Christmas cheer to the survivors of Yolanda! WE never know, the first thing you might write on your brand new planner is an entry about how you were able to collect the stickers, get the planner and give back to our brothers and sisters in the Visayas.
