Busch to give ‘3 months’ of beer to people that adopt or foster a dog during coronavirus pandemic

Dogs may be man’s best friend and beer is also his good buddy. As more and more people are practicing social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters and rescue centers have had to close their doors to visitors. Fortunately, some companies are taking steps to ensure that needy dogs don’t get forgotten about during the outbreak. Busch Beer is teaming up with Midwest Animal Rescue to help get dogs fostered and adopted. To help incentivize people into bringing a furry friend home, the beer company is offering a prize they call “Busch Beer for 3 months.” “During these uncertain and lonelier times, people need an escape: cue the cute puppy memes and photos,” a spokesperson for Busch in a statement to People. “But as much as we need those cute puppy pics to help get us through social distancing, it’s actually them who need us.” The rules for the promotion are fairly simple: adopt or foster a dog through Midwest Animal Rescue and then send the proof to Busch through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (users must also follow Busch on the social network). Busch will be providing up to 500 winners with a pre-paid debit card worth $100. Busch will be accepting submissions through April 25th. “Social distancing is better with a furry friend by your side and a cold beer in your hand,” a spokesperson for Busch told People. Based on what’s happening in New York City, Busch shouldn’t have a shortage of entrances. Click here to learn more!e!!  

Awesome!!  I adopted my last three dogs (all basset hounds), and can’t imagine my life without them.  Major kudos to the good people at Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis for this great idea!!  And hey.. if getting a new dog isn’t right for you at this time, that’s ok.  Stop by your local liquor store and buy some of the many different Busch beer products, and support this great American company instead.  Excellent!!    🙂

Anheuser-Busch to Produce, Distribute Hand Sanitizer to Americans in Need

The Anheuser-Busch beer company is on a mission to provide hand sanitizer to citizens across the nation during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Saturday, the company tweeted that it was using its supply and logistics network to produce and distribute the bottles to people who need it most. The company’s goal is to invest time in making a positive and lasting impact on others, especially during the current health crisis. “We are business partners, collaborators and community leaders working to make a difference around the corner and around the globe. We create jobs. We show up to lift up our neighbors when natural disasters strike,” its website read. In a subsequent tweet, the company said it was working with the American Red Cross to determine where the sanitizer should be distributed first. Earlier this month, Anheuser-Busch delivered over 150,000 cans of drinking water to Tennesseans whose communities were devastated by the recent tornadoes. “Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing support for disaster relief efforts in partnership with the American Red Cross,” the press release read. “Since the inception of the emergency drinking water program in 1988, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have provided nearly 83 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters and other crises,” the release continued. Following the announcement Saturday, Twitter users praised the beer company for their efforts to provide hand sanitizer to people across the country. “This is what I like to see during these times. Thank you @AnheuserBusch,” one person wrote. “Thank you for being a good neighbor!” another commented. In addition, several distilleries across America have focused their own efforts on making the disinfectant and getting it into the hands of charitable groups and others who have none. “We are in a national emergency,” said Chad Butters, founder of the Eight Oaks Farm Distillery in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania, whose company is currently producing its own homemade sanitizer. “What’s the right thing to do? The right thing to do is support this community by providing something that is in desperate need,” he concluded.

Exactly right!  Major kudos to St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch, and these other companies, for stepping up and helping out.  Cheers!!   🙂
