Free Tall Starbucks Coffee on July 4


Get a free tall coffee at Starbucks on July 4 in a call to action from the chairman of Starbucks.

According to an open letter posted on the Starbucks blog, CEO Howard Schultz is giving away the freebies to help spark conversations about America's problems with the hopes of "putting citizenship above partianship."

In "An Open Letter: How Can America Win This Election?," Schultz wades into partisan politics, saying "our elected leaders are continuing to put ideology over real solutions." He goes on to say something is seriously wrong and urges citizens to help find solutions to our mounting problems of staggering unemployment and debt by acting "collectively, with courage, creativity, and generosity of spirit."

Schultz asks for help in solving the problems, saying Starbucks will do its part to give a voice to solutions.

"Starting today, I invite you to share your view of America, and how we can all put citizenship over partisanship. On Instagram, post a photo of the America we all need to see. On Twitter, provide a link to an innovative idea. Blog about who’s making a difference in your community; or on YouTube, share how you made your American Dream come true. No matter where you post, if you use the tag #INDIVISIBLE, Starbucks will do its part to collect and amplify your voices."
