VENTURA, Calif.– Flying Embers, the better-for-you alcohol brand, is doing their part to support the ongoing wildfire crisis in California. From August 28th thru September 2nd at midnight, the brand is donating 100% of sales from purchases on their website to support the California fire crisis.
Flying Embers was born out of the Thomas Fires in 2017, which swept through Ventura County and threatened their home in the small town of Ojai, CA where their hard kombucha was first being brewed. But with the help of the community and a group of courageous firefighters, their laboratory, home and lives were spared. From that point forward, the brand committed to giving a portion of their proceeds to support First Responders out of gratitude for their service.
Given the current situation with over 300 fires actively burning throughout the state, Flying Embers decided to do more and provide its fans with a way to help as well. As consumers are stocking up for Labor Day, they can also do some good by contributing to the cause.
The brand is working with a variety of partners to provide direct assistance, including CAL FIRE, Storm King Mountain, Fire Safe Council, and the LA County Fire Museum. Through these partners, all donations will go towards providing burn shelters to those fighting the blaze, fireproof gel for the houses in harm’s way, and food trucks to show up at base camps to feed the frontline workers.
“Giving back to First Responders is in our DNA” says Bill Moses, Founder and CEO of Flying Embers. “In 2017, we were on the verge of losing everything, and would have if it weren’t for the fire department providing what we needed to fight the fire. I came to appreciate what they do and how they sacrifice, and ever since then I’ve committed the brand and everything we do – our purpose – to giving back to First Responders.”
