After five hours of work, few would deny the pleasures of a cup of hot coffee. "So how about it?" says Starbucks, and throws in a social twist. The 'Shared Planet' initiative of the popular barista giant has launched a campaign to inspire people to pledge just five hours of their valuable time to community service; the reward is a good spirit uplift, along with a free Tall brewed coffee.

But just in case you are not convinced yet, take a sneak peek of the new stimulating video by MC Yogi--it could be the very reason for the more than 750,000 hours that have already been pledged. The goal of the initiative is to achieve 1 million hours of service every year by 2015.
