Starbucks holiday cup comes with a message to 'Give Good' | Starbucks Newsroom
In a news release Starbucks unveiled its first color-in holiday cup. "We love the idea of everyone making this year's cup their own", said Leanne Fremar, executive creative director for Starbucks, in a statement on the company website.

It also includes a pair of hands holding red cups of coffee, and the cup features some splashes of green as well. Since then, every cup they've designed has heavily featured shades of red.
The coffee chain's seasonal cups launched in the U.S. on Wednesday morning and it's safe to say they're full of festive cheer.
Starting today, Starbuckssbux will be rolling out its holiday cups in the US and Canada, but with a totally new look. "Whether it's wrapping presents or decorating a tree, writing cards or enjoying a mug of cocoa". The plain red cups were slammed by some who felt that the company removed "Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus".
This season's "cup sleeve" (for hot beverages) is red with an invitation to "Give Good", which is the theme for Starbucks' 2017 holiday campaign.
