Hudson grew up on Chicago’s South Side and it’s where she won her first talent show. “There’s nothing like being able to come home and give back, and ‘7-Eleven’s Coffee Cup With A Cause’ program lets me do that,” she said.

Hudson’s cup went on sale Thursday at participating 7-Eleven® stores across the U.S and will be available through May 31, or while supplies last. A portion of the proceeds from cups featuring her personal design called “Light of Peace” will benefit her designated charity, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Her coffee cup design features a brightly burning candle as the focal point and is inscribed with the words “Light of Peace” in Hudson’s handwriting. Hudson’s autograph also is on the cups.

Throughout 2010, Dallas-based 7-Eleven, Inc. will introduce limited-edition 20-ounce coffee cups designed by entertainment and sports celebrities to be sold in its U.S. stores. Proceeds from “7-Eleven Coffee Cup With A Cause” cup sales benefit the featured celebrity’s charity of choice. “By partnering with a variety of celebrities and charities like Jennifer Hudson and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, our customers can help make a positive impact on thousands of lives,” said Rita Bargerhuff, 7-Eleven chief market officer.
