starbucks aids "all you need is love"

Often, our world is entranced by terrorists and bad economic news and we ourselves obsess about our own failings or wants…and we forget to click, appreciate, read, watch the countless good things that help the world (and our own hometowns) go ’round every day.

This video represents a fun sort of reminder that the world is diverse, and that’s a good thing; but that we’re united in our ability to love, and that’s all we need.

For every voice added, Starbucks will give to the fight against AIDs in Africa:

On December 7th, 2009 at 1:30 pm GMT Starbucks invited musicians from all over the world to sing together at the same time to raise awareness for AIDS in Africa. In that one breathtaking moment, musicians from 156 countries played “All You Need is Love” together. Watch now, as musicians from all around the world come together and share a song.

Join in by lending your own voice to http://StarbucksLoveProject.com Watch streaming video from countries around the world and then join in by singing All You Need is Love yourself. For each video submitted, Starbucks will make a contribution to the Global Fund to help fight against AIDS in Africa. You can also help increase the Starbucks contribution to the Global Fund by submitting a drawing to the Love Gallery.

The global sing-along is part of our continuing efforts to help fight AIDS in Africa. In just one year in partnership with (RED)™, Starbucks has generated money equivalent to more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa.

    It is good that the Beatles are trying to bring the world together thru their song "all you need is love", but only Jesus can bring the whole world together, on his second coming. [can't wait for that day]
