Brad Paisley and Guinness Partner for Firefighter Fundraising
Fri, 20 Feb 2015 13:11:15
As St. Patrick's Day nears and the familiar shades of kelly green and shamrocks re-appear, Guinness is challenging you to celebrate with more than a pint and is raising the bar in hopes of raising $1 million in support of firefighters across the country!
Raise a glass!
As part of its fundraising efforts, Guinness is releasing a series of limited-edition, firefighter inspired t-shirts, one of which is designed in collaboration with country music superstar Brad Paisley as a tribute to firefighters everywhere.
Paisley comes from a family of firefighters, including his father and brother-in-law, who have loyally served their communities.
These t-shirts will be available from now through St. Patrick's Day for purchase by adult Guinness fans.
All net proceeds from the sale of each t-shirt will go towards The Leary Firefighters Foundation, the Guinness brand's partner in its efforts to support and honor America's firefighters.
In addition to the sales of t-shirts, Guinness will be raising more funds for firefighters this month with the celebration of National Raise Your Glass Day on Thursday, February 26. Patrons of legal drinking age are invited to share a photo of their Guinness pint on Twitter, tagging @GuinnessUS or post it on the Guinness US Facebook page. For every photo posted, Guinness will donate $1, up to $100,000, towards its fundraising goal.
