The Seattle-based coffee giant has teamed with pop star Lady Gaga for the launch Tuesday of “Cups of Kindness,” four iced drinks hand picked by the singer herself and available in the U.S. and Canada through June 19.

The company will donate 25 cents from the sale of each drink to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. Funds will go toward programs that support youth wellness and empowerment by fostering kindness, improving mental health resources, and creating more positive environments, a Starbucks news release said.

Check out the descriptions for the four available flavors:

  • New Matcha Lemonade: Vibrant green drink made with finely ground Teavana matcha green tea, combined with crisp lemonade then shaken with ice to create a refreshingly sweet, delicious drink.
  • New Violet Drink: Sweet blackberries and tart hibiscus of Very Berry Hibiscus Starbucks Refreshers Beverage swirl together with creamy coconut milk and ice, creating a refreshing (and violet-hued) sip.
  • Ombré Pink Drink: A refreshing beverage that combines light, fruity Cool Lime Starbucks Refreshers Beverage with cool, creamy coconut milk and a splash of Teavana Shaken Iced Passion Tango Tea and a lime wheel, for a bright burst of hibiscus notes.
  • Pink Drink: A light and refreshing beverage that features the sweet strawberry flavors of Strawberry Acai Refreshers with accents of passion fruit and acai combined with coconut milk, and topped with a scoop of strawberries.

“I adore the entire collection and I instantly fell in love with the Matcha Lemonade,” Gaga said in the release.
