Starbucks Love Project

On December 7th, 2009 at 1:30pm GMT Starbucks and (RED) invited musicians from all over the world to sing together at the same time to raise awareness for AIDS in Africa. In that one breathtaking moment, musicians from 156 countries played “All You Need is Love” together. The music video, streamed live at, was used to invite fans to join the (RED) cause, uploading their own versions of the tune or adding drawings to the site’s Love gallery. In just one year in partnership with (RED)™, Starbucks has generated money equivalent to more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa. The Starbucks Love campaign is one of the PSAs eligible for voting in the Webbys. Voting closes today.
