Brad Paisley Teams Up With Guinness for Great Cause
Brad Paisley recently teamed with Diageo-Guiness USA to raise $1 million by St. Patrick's Day in support of local firefighters all over the country. You go, Brad!
The plan to raise money is with firefighter inspired t-shirts and all benefits will be going to the Leary Firefighters Foundation. Brad isn't just helping to get the word out there, he also designed the t-shirt!
Apparently our West Virginia native has some personal reasons for getting involved with the cause this year. In an interview, he said, "My father was a volunteer firefighter and showed me at an early age the sacrifices made every day by firefighters and how important what they do is to their communities."
These proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to the Leary Firefighters Foundation, which will provide firefighters all over the country with resources, training and technology. The shirts are being sold here for $20 until March 17th, so get yours now!
According to GuinnessGivesBack.com, they raised over $530,000 last year. Hopefully this year, with the help of Brad, they can reach their goal of $1 million!
Brad is feeling great about being a part of this great cause, saying, "I'm so excited to be a part of the Guinness initiative knowing their work with the LFF has such an impact on the safety, effectiveness, overall lives of firefighters."
I just ordered one for the firefighter in my life, my dad! If you've got any firefighters in your life, this is the perfect way of saying, "Thank you!"
