[QUOTE=DisneyOnMyMind;1124899]I used to drink starbucks all the time, but after someone sent me the following story in an email, I don’t anymore and I’m surprised that Disney would associate with a company that this!
Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because
They Wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffees
And to request that they send some of it to the troops there.
Starbucks replied, telling the Marines thank you for their support
Of their business, but that Starbucks does not support the war, nor anyone in it, And that they would not send the troops their brand of coffee.
So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not
Support them by buying any of their products! I feel we
Should get this out in the open. I know this war might
Not be very popular with some folks, but that doesn’t mean we don’t support the boys on the ground fighting street-to-street and
If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you
Can discard it and no one will ever know.
Thanks very much for your support. I know you’ll all be
There again when I deploy once more.

Also, don’t forget that when the Twin Trade Towers
were hit the fire fighters and rescue workers went to
Starbucks because it was close by for water for
the survivors and workers.
JUST A NOTE TO THIS; STARBUCKS HAD STORES ON
SEVERAL MILITARY BASES IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE NOW BEING REMOVED BECAUSE OF THIS.[/QUOTE]
That is just shocking! I don’t drink Starbuck’s - I am Tim Horton’s Double-Double girl - but reading this makes me even more determined never to give them any business.
