On a weekly visit to my favorite Starbucks inside my local Barnes and Noble bookstore I came across this new web show called the Upstanders. While connecting to the AT&T wifi through Starbucks website I saw this trailer on their homepage. The title of the show alone caught my attention, what is an upstander? It is an interesting term but it perfectly describes the people that Starbucks showcase in their new web show. Upstanders are everyday individuals that do extraordinary things in their communities. They are lifting up the people around them and being outstanding individuals or an upstander.
Produced by Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran this ten episode Starbucks original series shows us the importance of working within our own community to create positive change that can be passed down from generation to generation. Watch the trailer below and catch more of the series here.
