Sugarlands Distilling Company is making 2015 its “Year of Giving” by launching MoonShare, a community works program which donates a portion of its proceeds to organizations that positively impact the community.
“We love giving back as much as we love making moonshine,” said Courtney DeLaura, national director of MoonShare for Sugarlands Distilling Company. “We want people across the U.S. to understand the mission of the MoonShare program, which is to shine a light on non-profit organizations seeking to better their communities. MoonShare seeks to share our support of non-profit organizations who believe in the same pursuit of camaraderie – supporting those in need and community building.”
The nomination window for non-profits to apply is open now through Nov. 15 via the distillery’s website – www.sugarlandsdistilling.com/stories-in-every-jar/moonshare/.
“Our mission during the 2015 Year of Giving is to provide monetary donations to 12 elected non-profits, one each month,” said DeLaura. ”We’re thrilled to finally launch this incredible program and share it with communities everywhere. Online nomination forms are now available for any qualifying 501(c)3 non-profit organization to complete.”
After all nominations have been received, the MoonShare team will narrow down applicants to the Top 50 finalists which will be announced Dec. 1. Those top 50 non-profits will be given four weeks to get their campaign in order to move on to Round Two – an online voting portion of the “MoonShare Year of Giving” campaign via Facebook which is open to the public and runs Dec. 31, 2014 through Jan. 31, 2015.
