'Thank Starbucks' Counters 'Dump Starbucks' In Battle Over Company's Support of Gay Marriage
If you're starting to feel a little bad for Starbucks for having to take the fire for sticking to its values, there's now this: "Thank Starbucks" is a massive group thank-you card to counter the NOM BS. Launched by activist group SumOfUs, the card is meant to give the company "moral support to keep standing up for equality." "...It's a big deal when a giant multinational corporation with no particular connection to the gay community realizes that there are real business benefits-- from better employees to happier customers--to standing up for progressive ideals," the website states.
And if this is a contest, well, "Thank Starbucks" has gotten more than 250,000 signatures in just over 72 hours, more than 10 times the support the other guys have received. If you want to add your name, go here. Then go get some coffee.
