Snoop Dogg Makes Coffee Cups For Charity

Submitted by on September 9, 2010 – 12:28 pm2 Comments

Snoop Dogg‘s well known for his work in the community and giving back to those who are less fortunate and now the rapper has teamed up with 7-Eleven for their “Coffee Cup With A Cause” campaign to create a limited edition coffee cup to be carried in the stores.

The proceeds from the cup will go to Snoop’s “Snoop Youth Football League,” a Los Angeles-based football club founded by the rapper six years ago to help inner-city kids spend their free time in a healthy, safe environment. The cups will be in 7-Eleven stores from September 1 through October 18 or while supplies last. 7-Eleven guarantees a $250,000 minimum donation to SYFL, which may increase depending on the amount of cups sold.

Snoop recently spoke on the new partnership with the store. “We’ve been running this league for six years now with more than 3,500 kids participating in that time, but our partnership with 7-Eleven’s ‘Coffee Cup with A Cause’ program is huge for us. It means many good things are in store for the players, and the league can reach out to more kids and touch more lives. I’m just so proud of my league and my players right now, and designing a ‘Cup With A Cause’ is really an exciting opportunity for us.”
