Shots Box Makes a Commitment to Raise $12,000 for Thirst Project in One Year
Funding a Well to Provide Clean Drinking Water to an Entire Community
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Shots Box, a monthly subscription box featuring spirits samples from craft distilleries, announces a commitment to raise $12,000 in one year for The Thirst Project to help end the global water crisis. This commitment will fully fund the implementation of a freshwater well in the Kingdom of Swaziland, giving a community of approximately 500 people safe, clean drinking water for life.
“Giving back is something that has been near to my heart since my son was born and had to be hospitalized. That experience put the value of community into perspective for me and as a result, I strive for all my business ventures to be socially conscious,” said J.C. Stock, CEO and co-founder of Shots Box. “I am excited to partner with the Thirst Project to help them reach their mission of providing access to the over 663 million people globally who do not have safe drinking water.”
For every two full-size liquor bottles ordered through Shots Box, 50 cents from that purchase is donated to the Thirst Project, and that amount provides one person with clean drinking water for a year. At the end of one year, Shots Box has committed to reach the goal of $12,000 total in order to fund one water well for a community.
“They say ‘you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take,’ so it was a no-brainer for Thirst Project to team up with Shots Box to take a stand against the global water crisis,” says Luke Romick, marketing & partnerships director of Thirst Project. “We’re excited to give cocktail enthusiasts across the globe the opportunity to change the world through the purchase of Shots Box products.”
