Starbuck "Jobs for USA" campaign hits 1 million

Earlier this month I posted about giving to the Starbucks's Jobs for USA campaign. Today I saw that they have raised more than $1 million since launching at the beginning of the month. With Starbucks initial kick-in of $5 million, the total amount of money available for small business grants is over $42 million. Hopefully there are plenty of small entrepreneurs benefiting from this type of grass roots giving.

Here's a list of the first round of groups that have been given the grant money. Although I'm more interested in reading about the individuals that will get loans for their business.

Have you given to this campaign? Why or why not?
