I was red-faced with embarrassment this morning at 7th and Montana as Our Favorite City Councilman, Bobby Shriver, politely took me to task for not carrying a (Red) Card, the new "stored value card" that allows you to donate while you drink at Starbucks. "Here," he said, handing me a card, "You need one of these!" The (Red) Card ties into the charity, (Red)™, which Bobby established together with Bono of U2 in 2006 to help fight AIDS in Africa. From now through the end of the year, every time you make a purchase at a participating Starbucks using a (Red) Card, Starbucks will donate 5 cents to the global fund to save lives in Africa. Already, based on a similar promotion running last month, Starbucks customers have generated enough money to fund 1.4 million daily doses of lifesaving medicine. So, I promptly thanked Bobby for the card and loaded it up with cash. What happens when it runs out? I guess I'll be caught red-handed ...!
