Guinness has long been a staple of holiday celebrations, helping spread goodwill and the magic of the season. Now more than ever, Guinness encourages all to share in the spirit of giving with its reimagined limited-edition Guinness Gives Back packs.
Inspired by the goodness of the season, $1 ($1,000,000 collectively; purchase does not impact donation) for every Guinness Gives Back pack produced through December 31st will benefit United Way and other regional charities across the nation.
“We introduced our Guinness Gives Back packs last year to support communities in need and also bring some holiday spirit back to the season,” said Nikhil Shah, Guinness Brand Director. “As we head into the 2021 holiday season, it’s clear that there’s more work to be done. That’s why not only are we bringing the program back for its second year, but we upped our commitment to $1 million and teamed up with even more organizations doing some amazing work across the country. Our hope is that it’ll make getting together for the holidays again after the last year and half even more meaningful.”
As a brewer that has supported causes including social justice, economic equality, food scarcity, disaster relief and more, Guinness is continuing its partnership with several charitable organizations and also beginning to work with new partners like United Way, an organization that fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.
“As we head into the holiday season, we know that ongoing needs in many communities will only become more acute,” said Stan Little, Chief Experience Officer, United Way Worldwide. “United Way is proud to partner with Guinness Gives Back to support our neighbors in crisis by providing services and supports including food, shelter and access to medical care.”
The Guinness Gives Back packs, each containing eight 14.9-oz. cans of Guinness Draught Stout with imagery honoring the entire country, will be available in stores nationwide for a limited time only. When celebrating the spirit of the season, remember to always raise a pint responsibly.
