(BEDFORD) - Your morning chai latte may be doing a lot more than just giving you an extra little pep.

Starbucks announces through its partnership with Oprah Winfrey, which began a year ago, sales of Teavana Oprah Chai have now raised more than $5 million for youth organizations in the U.S. and Canada. One hundred percent of all donation proceeds from Teavana Oprah Chai benefit youth education.

To celebrate this milestone and to thank customers, Starbucks is inviting you to come to their stores Thursday through Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. For every purchase of a Teavana Oprah Cinnamon Chai Latte, customers will receive a free Teavana Oprah Cinnamon Chai Latte to share.

Starbucks will make a donation for both beverages that will go to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, which in turn provides further funding to Girls Inc. National CARES Mentoring Movement, Pathways to College and U.S. Dream Academy.

Oprah Winfrey visited with young woman from Girls Inc. who have benefited in part because of Teavana Oprah Chai to celebrate the year anniversary and to discuss the importance of education. Some of these young women will be featured in a special Teavana Oprah Chai TV Spot that runs this week on NBC during "The Voice" and OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
