It started in 2012 and now is an international phenomenon, it’s #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday is the charitable counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Throughout the world people start the Holiday season by donating to thousands of charities. And there’s a new way for people to participate this Giving Tuesday, by having a beer at one of three Brewshed® Partners to support Washington Wild.
Washington Wild is the only statewide conservation non-profit primarily dedicated to protecting Washington’s wild lands and waters. In 2012 we started the Brewshed® Alliance, an outreach initiative designed to engage brewery partners in spreading the message that protected watersheds lead to superior downstream beer. The Brewshed® Alliance is just one example of how we work with various stakeholders to support our conservation work, including the Wild Olympics Campaign and the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Additions passed a year ago December.
Over the past year, Washington Wild made over 1,000 connections with local elected officials, business owners, breweries, recreation organizations and sportsmen to support the permanent protection of wild lands and waters throughout the state. The organization works alongside a broad array of stakeholders, Creating a Big Tent for Conservation, and working to achieve a common purpose. We want your help at one of three Happy Hours throughout the state!
Three different brewery Brewshed® Partners are hosting a Brewshed® Happy Hour: Wander Brewing in Bellingham, Flycaster Brewing Company in Kirkland and NW Peaks Brewery in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. All three breweries will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of each beer throughout the event. See the full details below for each event and come out for a Brewshed® Happy Hour near you to keep Washington Wild, green and full of great beer! Anyone who gives on site a donation of $20 or more will receive a FREE glass at any of the three locations! If you can’t make it please consider giving online.
