SEATTLE; Jan. 14, 2009
Starbucks Joins Call for National Service and Asks, “Are You In?” Starbucks and HandsOn Network are partnering to raise one million hours of service across America


Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) and HandsOn Network are joining to launch the “I’m In!” campaign, an initiative to make it easy to participate in the President-elect’s call for national service. In participating Starbucks stores across the nation, the American public will have an opportunity to pledge five hours or more of community service toward a local volunteer opportunity of choice. Starbucks will honor each person who pledges with a free tall brewed coffee beginning Wednesday, Jan. 21 through Sunday, Jan. 25. The goal of the effort is to raise pledges in excess of one million hours of service from all over the country.

“Five hours is just 25 minutes a month for a year, two afternoons at a food bank creating care packages, a day reading to children at a hospital or in a park planting trees,” said Vivek Varma, senior vice president of Global Affairs, Starbucks Coffee Company. “We hope to help spark a new spirit of volunteerism by exceeding a million pledge hours and HandsOn Network is the perfect partner to allow our customers to join us in a renewed national commitment to community service.”

“HandsOn Network is excited to join forces with Starbucks. We have witnessed the partnerships between corporations and nonprofits grow more creative and this type of collaboration is a powerful way to reach scale and truly create a movement. Starbucks is the catalyst to reach millions of volunteers and HandsOn equips, activates and provides the much needed resources to help America fulfill the commitments made from this initiative,” said Michelle Nunn, chief executive officer. “HandsOn has over 270 HandsOn Action Centers located in the United States and works with over 31,000 nonprofit organizations. A quick online questionnaire can steer consumers toward a fulfilling volunteer opportunity.”

How to Participate at Your Local Starbucks
Visit Starbucks:
You can join the “I’m In” campaign, part of the Starbucks™ Shared Planet™ commitment to community involvement, when visiting a local participating Starbucks beginning Wednesday, Jan. 21 (and continuing through Sunday, Jan. 25). Stop by the “I’m In” display featuring community pledge cards, pick up the card, and fill it out with your five-hour commitment to volunteer.
Pledge Five:
Place the “I’m In” sticker from the pledge card on your lapel, signifying your pledge, and take the card with you as a reminder to keep the effort going. As a thank you, each customer who pledges five hours of their own time will receive a complimentary tall cup of brewed coffee.
Track Success:
Customers can log on to pledge5.starbucks.com to record pledge hours, find local volunteer opportunities via the HandsOn Network, track hours pledged-to-date, and receive updates on the campaign.

I guess you'll be missing out on some good coffee then. I'll be headed over to Starbucks to enjoy a cup or two in a bit.

I know that your offensive "Obama's Hitler Posse" is intentional, but it's just pure crap.

Did Vivek Varma really refer to people as "consumers"?

Unfortunately, there are also others like Say It Loud who ( repugnantly ) compare Obama to Hitler:

The Obama-Hitler parallel by Jerry A. Kane, WND

[link to www.worldnetdaily.com]

Of course, neo-con Kane "forgets" to mention that Hitler believed that socialism was a right-wing ideology. Kane also refers to the uber Orwellian-doublethink book "Liberal Fascism" by fellow neo-con Jonah Goldberg .

The Truth is, of course, that Obama couldn't be more the opposite of Hitler. The neo-cons' Lies are as great as the Nazi's

I will be helping. I am going to tutor young students in writing and helping them for their exams. The Starbucks here closed, so I'll have to provide my own caffeine.

Honestly! I think it is a nice and humane gesture. In this world gone crazy, to think about how to help others and to get out there would help out a great deal.

I am NOT a socialist, and I'm not saying you have to do it. Free will and all, brah. But I don't think it's evil. Can't we see even tiny little bits of good anymore?

NO. When a groundswell of participation leaves you alone jerking off in the dust perhaps then you'll begin to realise the importance of community effort.

You selfish little swine are too young and undereducated to understand that -once upon a time- neighbors actually CARED for one another instead of loading their weapons, daring intruders to cross a property line.

In the past century: when a man would lose his house, barn or crops to fire or other failure, his immediate community would show up with materials and labor to help him rebuild... and usually, without the DEMAND of repayment. That's one thing that makes the TV show EXTREME MAKEOVER so grippingly poignant as the bus rolls away and the tears start to flow from the eyes of the recipients.... I KNOW THIS FIRSTHAND from local participation and it makes every splinter, blister or bead of sweat you shed even more significant in your personal developement.

TO THE PERSON WHO THINKS I'M NOT SETTING A 'VERY GOOD EXAMPLE': bite me. The little jerks who create and foment threads such as this are pathetic excuses for Americans and will only volunteer their time without reward until shamed into doing so. The BIG problem? They have no shame in the greed and selfishness that infects their very being.

480844:

I require neither title or recompense. My disgust at our self-centered youth arises from direct involvement and witnessing it personally; rare indeed is the young person who willingly gives of themself for another without reconsidering or straying from that more noble pathway.

When I was a young man [in the early 1960's] it was common for groups of teens to show up at nursing homes and hospitals [Yes: even the V.A. hospitals!] to help however they could in lifting the burdens of those whom life had misused, or used up. Today: 20-somethings are more apt to shop around for the cheapest facilty they can toss Granny into with the least degree of discomfort to their own nasty lives.

The point I'm trying to make to these greedy little Bastards is that the concept of community involvement/service is NOTHING NEW! In fact: if anything, it's a valid return to the principles that created our nation and helped it to become one of the greatest countries on this planet.

And, I submit that we need this attitude NOW more than ever before... going all the way back to 1776.

I'M NOT ADDRESSING CORPORATIONS -BUT RATHER INDIVIDUALS SUCH AS YOURSELF, SONNY!

I would like to see the Sororities/Fraternities of a few major institutions of higher learning [and presumably understanding] take up the banner of this cause and set an example to others. They'll have the connections, money and forces to evoke great progress.

BUT: I also believe it's far more important for the common man -the poor shmuck struggling himself- to reach out as our Great-Grandfathers did and offer a helping hand to another without need of a please or thank you. As I said above: the rewards will be far greater than the effort put forth. Because you'll carry in your heart the knowledge that YOU made a positive difference in someone else's life [and hopefully not feel the need of boasting afterward] and that, my friends, is priceless.

True: there may be some you will help who will later treat you badly, or destroy your good works. No matter. They simply haven't learned that valuable lesson you'll already possess: it's better to give than to receive.

BTW: the simple fact that a corporation feels the need to REWARD volunteers only proves my point about how GREED has infested feeble thinkers such as yourself... you have to be tempted, baited and paid before you'll lift one single finger for someone else.

Now: That's PATHETIC!
