Lady Gaga & Starbucks Collaboration In “Cups of Kindness”

Starbucks has 4 new colourful summer drinks and this is why!

Lady Gaga and Starbucks are in partnership sharing a common mission: to build a kinder, braver world. With Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and Starbucks, the team will be spreading the message of kindness with the Starbucks “Cups of Kindness” Collection.

The Cups of Kindness Collection will feature 4 new colourful Starbucks drinks, selected by Lady Gaga herself. Starbucks and Lady Gaga both believe that communities are at its best when every individual treats each other with compassion, respect, and generosity.

Cups of Kindness Collection

How do I support this cause?

Head straight to your local Starbucks and purchase one of the 4 featured drinks. Each drink that you purchase, Starbucks will donate $0.25 to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and the Channel Kindness project.


This great cause will run from June 13 and June 19. Buy a drink for a friend or treat your co-workers in the office to a new colouful summer refreshment.

Important message from Starbucks

A project of the Born This Way Foundation, Channel Kindness empowers young people to document stories of kindness in their worlds. Grounded in the belief that compassion and kindness are key to building vibrant, productive communities, the platform gives young people the resources and opportunities they need to help change the world—one act of kindness at a time.

  1. Ombré Pink Drink As delicious as it is gorgeous. This refreshing Ombré Pink Drink combines our light, fruity Cool Lime Starbucks Refreshers® beverage with cool, creamy coconut milk and a splash of Teavana® Shaken Iced Passion Tango® Tea, for a bright burst of hibiscus.
  2.  Violet Drink The sweet blackberries and tart hibiscus of our Very Berry Hibiscus Starbucks Refreshers® beverage swirl together with creamy coconut milk and ice, creating refreshing (and violet-hued!) sips.

  1. Matcha Lemonade Our finely ground Teavana® matcha green tea is combined with crisp lemonade and then shaken with ice to create a refreshingly sweet, delicious drink that’s a delightfully vibrant, green hue.
  2. Pink Drink Our crisp, Strawberry Açaí Starbucks Refreshers® beverage, with its accents of passion fruit, is combined with creamy coconut milk. It’s a fruity and refreshing sip of spring, no matter what time of year.

Final Thoughts

Recently, Starbucks has been the center of attention with their colourful new drinks(hint: Unicorn). They have also collaborated with different companies for special promotions like Pokémon Go and now Lady Gaga. I think this is a great way to expand their range for attention to great ideas and causes. Stay tuned for my future posts on “New Starbucks Drinks” this summer.
