Meghan Markle’s fight for paid leave continues. This time, she’s providing Starbucks gift cards to nonprofit staff, who are working to get paid leave in the United States.
To show her support for the workers at PL+US, the Duchess of Sussex sent $25 vouchers to members of the staff supplied through her and Prince Harry's nonprofit, Archewell. The program is working to pass legislation that would introduce paid parental leave (approximately 12 weeks off for most employees) in the country for the first time.
Neil Sroka, the organization’s communications director, shared a snap of his gift card to Twitter. “The Duchess of Sussex (aka #MeghanMarkle) bought everyone at @PaidLeaveUS a few cups of coffee while we're working overtime to #SavePaidLeave. Unbelievably classy... and necessary. Truly honored to know she has our backs in the fight to win #PaidLeaveForAll,” he captioned the post.
