If you have a java junkie on your Christmas list, check out this special and meaningful opportunity: $100 for a mug that refills itself for free, all year long.
Amanda and Shannon are teenagers who love art, and they've also endured months of intense chemotherapy treatment - together. They are two of five Roswell Park Cancer Institute's youth artists from The Paint Box Project, and they have left their handprint - literally - on the newest Paint Box gift. Just unveiled is the first-edition Dunkin' Donuts "bottomless" cup of coffee, "Mug of Hope."
The limited edition mug is on sale now through www.paintboxproject.com for $100, and entitles purchasers to unlimited free coffee from participating Western New York Dunkin' Donuts restaurants from date of purchase through December 31, 2010 - a value estimated at more than $500 if used daily, and even more if purchasers "run on Dunkin" in 2010. All proceeds benefit Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and with a limited supply of just 1,000 mugs, Dunkin' Donuts expects to raise $100,000 for Roswell Park. The mugs are ideal holiday gifts for coffee lovers.
This year marks The Paint Box Project's 20th anniversary. The project has raised more than $7.4 million since its beginning. What started out with gift cards during the holidays has grown into something bigger and even more special, as evidenced by the Mug of Hope. Now that's a loving cup.
