Celebrate by Giving Good with Starbucks this Holiday

With Christmas fast approaching, everyone is a little anxious and excited to welcome this most anticipated time of the year.

While definitely a busy time, the holidays offer a sweet period to indulge in the company of friends, extend kindness and generosity, and welcome the many surprises that the season brings.

As Christmas day nears, the feeling of goodness only grows stronger too. ‘Giving good’ becomes a habit, as more people exchange smiles and conversations, and join in the season’s heart-warming traditions.

“The holiday season is a time for coming together and sharing goodwill. In our stores, we encourage these simple acts of kindness, in recognition of those who spend their time with us and those who embody generosity during this season,” said Keith Cole, Starbucks Philippines head of marketing.
