FREE coffee!? From STARBUCKS!?!?! What the WHAAAAAT!?!?!
Howard Schultz, Starbucks CEO, has launched the #PayItForward campaign where if you purchase someone else's drink at one of their participating stores, you will receive a free tall coffee from today through Friday.
In this ever frustrating government shutdown, Howie hopes that offering the free coffee will encourage lawmakers to come together and fix what's happening.
He went on to say:
"It's that simple: Pay it forward, and Starbucks will pay you back. I believe you will agree that this is a different yet authentic way Starbucks can help our fellow citizens to come together by supporting one another during a particularly challenging time."
Though, we doubt it will influence any happenings in the political realm, maybe more people will feel a closer connection by giving back to one another!
There are MANY celebs who go on frequent Starbucks trips, like Kaley Cuoco, Hilary Duff, and Jennifer Morrison to name a few, and we hope they too will start feeling the love and help others out!
Go Starbucks!!! We love it!!!
