I was at my local Starbucks yesterday, and saw a remarkable tumbler on the shelves. It was unique enough to write about as its own blog article. This tumbler retails for $39.95. Out of the $39.95, Starbucks gives $5.00 to HandsOnNetwork. I have always thought that this is a fabulous partnership! HandsOnNetwork is a non-profit designed to facilitate community service and volunteering. If you want to follow HandsOnNetwork.org on Twitter, click here. And on a related topic, Starbucks has recently revamped their community service website. The new version has both a partner and a customer log-in, and the new page is easy to search for community service projects. The tumbler is hand-dipped in a white gold glaze, and is a very limited edition item. The signage says 'while supplies last' and from what I know, many stores received just a few of these.
So did anyone buy one? I admit, I bought one right away. Just think it is perfect to add to my collection. What do you think of this, and would you spend $39.95 on a tumbler?
