HOUSTON -- A day like today gives us grounds to celebrate! Cheers to National Coffee Day!

In honor of this big occasion, some shops like Dunkin' Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Tim Hortons, McDonald's and Whole Foods offered free cups of Joe. Others went a different charitable route.

Caribou Coffee herded up support for nurses and families in cancer centers. For every cup sold they donated one to those folks who no doubt really need it. Starbucks started a tree planting initiative.
