Starbucks and Foursquare team up to help save babies

(RED) Rush to ZeroAs I was ordering my soy latte at Starbucks this morning, I saw something that made me wish I was a FourSquare app user. Because just by checking in, I could have helped a really good cause.

So if you’re an avid FourSquare fan, now’s your chance to make a difference. And if you’re not, this could be a great opportunity to start.


Now through June 10th, as part of (RED)Rush to Zero, Starbucks, along with retailers of Penfolds strollers and Bugaboo strollers, are helping raise money to take the number of babies born with AIDS every day from 1000 to zero.

Zero. And it’s doable.

All you have to do is check-in on FourSquare when you’re at your local Starbucks or at a participating Penfolds and Bugaboo retailer and $1 will be donated to (RED) and their global efforts instantly. That’s it. Seriously. 

If you’re like me, you could easily have a $10 donation by the end of the week for doing something you already do almost every day anyway. -Kristen
