On Monday, December 7, Starbucks is sponsoring a world-wide sing-along intended to help raise funds for AIDS projects in Africa.
Dubbed the "Starbucks Love Project", the company describes it thus:
"In one amazing moment, the world will come together to sing about the one thing we all have in common — love. People from around the world will sing the legendary hit "All You Need Is Love" in a single voice on December 7, 2009, at 5:30 a.m. PST/8:30 a.m. EST. The global sing-along is part of our continuing efforts to help fight AIDS in Africa. In just one year in partnership with (RED)™, Starbucks has generated money equivalent to more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa.
"You can watch the event, and lend your own voice, when you visit StarbucksLoveProject. com. Watch streaming video from countries around the world and then join in by singing "All You Need Is Love" yourself. For each video submitted, Starbucks will make a contribution to the Global Fund to help fight against AIDS in Africa. You can also help increase the Starbucks contribution to the Global Fund by submitting a drawing to the Love Gallery.
