Some friendly new faces are joining the menu at Starbucks thanks to their partnership with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation! That’s right — the Matcha Lemonade and the Violet Drink are two new drinks being introduced as part of Starbucks' partnership with Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, which is being called the Cup Of Kindness Collection. Those two drinks join the recently released Ombré Pink Drink and original Pink Drink to make up the collection. But, when can you buy the new Matcha Lemonade and Violet Drink at Starbucks?
Luckily, you won't have to wait long: They are officially available starting Jun. 13! Hooray!
Although the Ombre Pink Drink and Pink Drink have been out for a little while now, the Matcha Lemonade and Violet Drink are brand-new. The Matcha Lemonade is made with Teavana Matcha green tea and lemonade. The Violet Drink is made with a delectable mix of berries, hibiscus, the Very Berry Hibiscus Starbucks Refreshers, coconut milk and ice. These drinks sound so delicious that there is no doubt that the Born This Way Foundation will fundraise a ton of money through this incredible partnership.
Yes, these drinks are available starting Jun. 13, and I promise you’re going to want to hustle into your nearest Starbucks once these two refreshing drinks are released! Why? Well from Jun. 13 to Jun. 19, Starbucks will be donating a whole 25 cents per Cups of Kindness drink sold to the Born This Way Foundation. In other words, if you buy a Matcha Lemonade, a Violet Drink, a Pink Drink, or an Ombré Pink Drink between those dates, you'll be donating money to a good cause and getting a delicious beverage. What the what?!
The money will go towards programs that are empowering youth to be kinder and compassionate towards others by creating positive environments and providing mental health resources. This will assist youths between the ages of 16 to 24, an influential age for those who are determined to make a change within their world.
Even better, Starbucks has committed to donating a minimum of $250,000 to the Born This Way Foundation through this partnership! You can help in making a difference (and raising that incredible number to an even larger amount) by simply getting one of these refreshing drinks between Jun. 13 and 19. Talk about a refreshing and rewarding summer afternoon!
So head on over to Starbucks starting on Jun. 13, and make sure to order one of these four Cups Of Kindness drinks for a donation to such an incredible cause.
