Conor McGregor has been in his fair share of controversies over the past few years, but his successful business venture into the whiskey world is resulting in something great for first responders.
McGregor announced yesterday that, having promised to donate $5 of every sold case of Proper Twelve (up to $1 million per year) to first responders, his whiskey company has reached its first $1 million to be donated.
The fighter shared the news on social media:
“Happy 1st birthday to @properwhiskey!!! What a journey it has been so far!
We are now in 8 countries to date, with many more planned for 2020! I am so thankful to you all for your support and love of PROPER No. TWELVE!
I also want to thank the fine Irish women and men who have worked so diligently at the distillery and beyond…what an amazing team we have!
When we started this business, something very important to me was to give back. For every case we sell, my company donates $5 up to 1 million dollars per year to first responders. I am very proud to announce that we have already hit the 1 million dollar mark! This is all thanks to you! Our fans!
Thank you all ❤️
In the New Year, we will begin donating the first million dollars to first responder organizations. My team is vetting it all out now to be sure it goes into the proper hands. Thank you all for the support! Sláinte”
With the name of someone of McGregor’s status boosting its sales, don’t be surprised if Proper Twelve is able to achieve the same milestone next year as well.
