A new Starbucks ad follows a trans boy as he starts going by his new name.

The ad will air on television in the U.K. and online, and it’s part of a partnership with the U.K. transgender youth organization Mermaids. The chain will sell limited-edition mermaid cookies to raise up to £100,000 ($130,000) for the group.
