Coffee Cup with a Cause

The next time you swing into 7-Eleven for a cup of Joe, you can lend a helping hand to cancer survivors.

All you have to do is purchase a snazzy Will Ferrell-designed coffee cup as part of the convenience store company’s annual “Coffee Cup with A Cause” campaign.

The zany actor is the fifth celebrity to design a coffee cup for 7-Eleven, joining the ranks of Snoop Dogg, John Cena, Jennifer Hudson and Nicole Ritchie. His snowman cup is for sale through Jan. 3 or until supplies last.

Proceeds from the cup will benefit Cancer for College, a California-based charity that provides support to cancer survivors through academic scholarships. Since its inception in 1993, it has granted more than $1 million in scholarships to more than 800 cancer survivors and amputees.

7-Eleven is guaranteeing a $250,000 donation to the non-profit, but the amount could increase if even more cups than expected are sold. So, drink up.

    I’ll have to check out 7 Eleven as we go through the Cities on our way to SW MN next weekend. How wonderful to have a cup for a cause. Plus I love coffee, especially when I’m travelling.
    Glad the storm (blizzard) we have today isn’t next weekend…12 to 16 inches of snow by midnight, and then below zero temps with wind. How lovely, that’s why I’m staying home doing my Christmas baking.
    Merry Christmas.
