Cups of Kindness

Following the Unicorn Frappuccino phenomenon, Starbucks found itself in the shadow of its own success. The barrage of Starbucks inspired ‘unicorn selfies’ overshadowed our hard fought reputation as a brand with purpose. To remedy this, we launched Cups of Kindness, a week-long promotion in partnership with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation—supporting youth empowerment and wellness. The core message: “be kind”, put our brand’s purpose as a center of the work. The creative produced was up-leveled and unexpected, and it offered our audience a more meaningful way to participate in the Instagramable drink trend.
