Dating a guy in the marines
In 2011, Starbucks provided over 220,000 3-packs of Starbucks VIA® to the USO for their care package program.Although Starbucks does not themselves directly donate to military personnel, they do get their coffee into the hands of those serving in the U. armed forces through their partnership with the USO.Starbucks wrote back telling the Marines thanks for their support in their business, but that they don’t support the War and anyone in it and that they won’t send them the Coffee.So as not to offend them we should not support in buying any Starbucks products.Starbucks partners receive one pound of free coffee each week as an employee benefit (known as “partner mark-out”).Many of them have elected to send their weekly mark-out to members of the military or military families, and related organizations.In fact, Starbucks has partnered with the American Red Cross and the United Service Organizations (USO) to provide coffee to relief efforts during times of conflict, donating more than 141,000 lbs of coffee and over one million 3-packs of Starbucks VIA®.Additionally, troops all over the world are enjoying Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew in care packages they receive not only from Starbucks, but from their family and friends as well.
That viral missive proclaimed that Starbucks had not only refused a request for free product from some U. Marines serving in Iraq, but had retorted that “they don’t support the war [in Iraq] and anyone in it”I have indeed confirmed the fact that Starbucks charged rescue workers 0.00 for 3 cases of bottled water on September 11, 2001, so the following info that was passed on to me would not be surprising to me at all!!In less emotionally-charged times, the logic of such a policy is better understood, but the current climate makes it a dicey public relations proposition at best to say no to anything having to do with soldiers.The Nigerian dating scams target the lonely and vulnerable.If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you can discard it and I’ll never know.Thanks very much for your support to me, and I know you’ll all be there again here soon when I deploy once more.

Wright heard the story from a friend, who had gotten it from someone else.
