Did you hear the one about how Lindsay Lohan wants to help refugees in Turkey via an energy drink?
That’s partially true.
The actress is the brand ambassador for the blue caffeine lemonade Mintanine, which has partnered with her to aid refugees.
The German company behind the drink, YNDA GmbH, said in a statement it has been working with Lohan since September.
The “Mean Girls” star has been sharing images on social media of herself interacting with Syrian refugees and aid workers in Turkey.
According to the company’s statement, it will donate 10 euros ($10.90) for each Bigbox (72 cans) ordered from its online shop.
Earlier reports that Lohan was planning on distributing energy drinks at refugee camps were criticized.
According to YBDA GmbH, energy drinks contain 32 milligrams of caffeine as well as taurine, while Mintanine has 15 milligrams of caffeine from natural guarana and shouldn’t be considered an energy drink.
A spokesman for the company told CNN that “Lindsay, as brand ambassador, of course has a certain quantity of cans at her disposal. She is free and welcome to give those cans to refugees she is meeting.”
The star is offering the drink at her Lohan nightclub in Greece.
