Lending a Helping Hand to The Bartending Community in Lockdown

To aid and support the food and beverage industry, Jack Daniel has launched an online crowdfunding tip-jar initiative amid the lockdown

The food and beverage industry, in particular, faces a grave uncertainty due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown, with most outlets reeling under severe financial stress.

To aid and support the industry, Jack Daniel’s recently launched an online crowdfunding tip-jar initiative, aimed at raising money for bartenders and wait staff community, who have been severely affected due to the coronavirus outbreak. With every virtual tip that is contributed, Jack Daniel’s will provide financial support as well to build back this community.

The initiative is live now and will run till May 31. The brand has partnered with the Indian Flair Bartenders Association (IFBA) which will collect money by providing a crowdfunding platform to people willing to help and will then distribute the amount collected to the intended recipients, ensuring the money raised reaches the impacted people directly.

Additionally, Jack Daniel’s is also reaching out separately to all the finalists of its annual nationwide cocktail competition, American Whiskey Legacy Cocktail Challenge. All the mixologists over the years who have made it to the finals of the competition across all the editions are being supported financially by the company to help them overcome the present situation.
