my big holiday project, part 1

i’m friends with a number of starbucks enthusiasts.  i also realize, not everyone out there loves starbucks, but hopefully this project still makes people smile as they read about it.

for holiday 2014, starbucks has released 99 new gift card designs (and at least 100 mugs designs, but i am focusing on cards for this particular project).

a family member of mine is a card collector, as am i.  i want to get her some of these very interesting designs.  so, i’ve started a campaign, on g+ and facebook, to sort of crowdsource as many of the cards as i can.

the reasoning?  well, starbucks policy is to pre-load the cards with at least $5, and i can’t very easily afford $500 for one gift.  so, i have asked those i know if they can get a card, enjoy a coffee, and then mail the cards to me.

through speaking to my local cafe, this morning, i managed to acquire the following 6 cards, to start off the project:

the cafe was generous enough to give them to me without the required pre-load, which is awesome.  but, they’re a small cafe, and 6 was all they had on hand…if they’d had all 99, they would have likely completed my project then and there!

so, dear readers, i plan to update this project when i get new cards in.  if you’d like to help out, please let me know!
