Oct. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- October 8, 2012 – A Texas man named Winter will visit his 11,000th Starbucks store next week.

Winter (full legal name) is a computer programmer from Houston, TX, who has dedicated much of the past fifteen years to traveling around the world in an attempt to drink a coffee from every company-owned Starbucks, and photographing each one for his website. Winter has visited 10,997 company-owned Starbucks locations, and will soon visit his 11,000th store. To celebrate this milestone, and to honor his goal of using his Starbucks Everywhere project to address social problems, Winter will solicit donations intended to benefit charities promoting the reproductive rights of women, and he will personally match collected donations up to a total of $11,000.

Winter began his project simply to try and do something unique, but what started out as a lark soon turned into an extreme hobby that consumed more and more time as Starbucks accelerated its global expansion. Winter is dedicated to his original mission and continues to pursue the Starbucks Everywhere project out of his personal love for travel, adventure, photography, and cataloging Starbucks, but beyond that, Winter hopes to use the project to raise social awareness and address social problems.

Winter's mission is chronicled on his website, http://www.starbuckseverywhere.net, and also documented in the 1997 documentary "Starbucking". Winter's project has also been featured across many radio, television, and print outlets, including the Washington Post Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, NPR's Talk of the Nation, and news shows on NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, MSNBC, and CNN.

Donations can be made through PayPal via the website http://www.starbuckseverywhere.net.
