If you need yet another reason to stock up on gin…
Ryan Reynolds is doing his part for out of work bartenders during the Coronavirus outbreak which has forced bars, restaurants, and clubs to close, by donating some of the profits from his gin company.
The 43-year-old Deadpool actor announced that his spirit company, Aviation Gin, would be donating 30 percent of its online profits to the United States Bartender’s Guild from now until May 1, as part of its new ‘Tip Your Bartenders program’…
“Until May 1st, for every bottle of Aviation ordered online, we’ll donate 30% of proceeds as a tip to your bartenders – who REALLY miss you btw,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Visit http://AviationGin.com/delivered #TipYourBartenders #StayHomeSaveLives.”
Aviation Gin made a $15,000 donation to the United States Bartender’s Guild and is encouraging people to buy the spirit online and enjoy it at home during the isolation period.
What a guy!
And that’s not the only generous thing the actor is doing…
Just last week, he and his wife Blake Lively donated $1 million to two foodbank charities in America and Canada, which aim to help those affected by the virus.
“Covid-19 has brutally impacted older adults and love income families,” he shared on both Instagram and Twitter.
“Blake and I are donating $1 million to be split between FEEDING AMERICA and FOOD BANKS CANADA.
“If you can give, these orgs need our help. Take care of your bodies and hearts. Leave room for joy. Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection.”
