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.
