Beginning January 1 and lasting “indefinitely” customers, the new format is said to be “an extension to the company’s continued philanthropic initiatives”.

The partnering charities for quarter one include Emancipet, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, Grammy Foundation, American Red Cross, Operation Homefront and Core.

“Philanthropy has always been something we are extremely passionate about at Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and there is no better way to express this than having 100% of our online store proceeds donated to charities from now on,” said Bert ‘Tito’ Beveridge, founder and master distiller.

“By partnering with six different charities, we’re not only benefiting one good cause, but six — and we are allowing our fans to choose exactly where they want their money going, towards the cause closest to their own hearts.”

All proceeds from dog-related merchandise will automatically be donated to Emancipet, a non-profit organisation that offers pet owners affordable veterinary care.

The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation supports organisations delivering direct care and services to people living with HIV and AIDS, while the Grammy Foundation aims to cultivate the ‘appreciation and advancement’ of recorded music to American culture.

The American Red Cross ‘prevents and alleviates human suffering’ in emergencies, while Operation Homefront provides military families with an array of support programmes.

The final charity, Core, supports the children of food and beverage employees who are navigating life-altering circumstances or conditions.

    Thank you for your effort to support Emancipet. I am not currently a pet owner, but my past pets have made an incredible support to my 83 years.

  2. Thank you for supporting such great charities!
    Hope you don’t mind my sharing…..Chicago Cat Rescue is a non-profit 501-C foster only rescue in Chicago. I am a supporter and volunteer. I know about the work they do, and how hard it is for a smaller rescue to get funding, even though they often pick up where the larger rescues leave off as is the case with Chicago Cat Rescue. Founder Cindy Ruback goes way beyond what most rescues do, and definitely what the big shelters do in an effort to save animals throughout Chicago and wherever help is needed. She is often called out to Indiana and rural areas where they have fewer rescues to help take in animals that are at high risk of losing their lives. Such was the case recently when she was called about a small 11 year old Jack Russell terrier named Annie, and her best friend Gypsy, a 5 year old cat. Their owner had passed away and they were about to be euthanized. They were a bonded pair. Cindy was asked to take the cat, and hopes were to find a rescue for Annie, but the two would be separated. A supporter saw the post on Facebook and called a friend. Within hours Cindy had worked through the system to reach the rescues and arrange transports for these two. If you love a happy ending…Annie and Gypsy now are TOGETHER at a FUREVER home thanks to Chicago Cat Rescue. Chicago Cat Rescue does not have the funding of the major rescues. The work they do is just as crucial, maybe harder because they go to the streets to trap, work with ferals, take in motherless kittens, and take in animals other shelters walk away from because they know the medical bills will be too high. Chicago Cat Rescue does not believe you turn your back on an animal’s suffering. Their bills at the vet “are” high and they are what they are as Cindy says. She will not compromise treatment, care, or food. We are holding our biggest event of the year February 25th and would love more sponsors, food etc. It is called Sexy Black and is in it’s eigth year. It is to highlight the issues that black cats have getting adopted, and that they are the last to be adopted, but the first to be euthanized. Would you have any interest in becoming a sponsor for this event? We can send you more information regarding it if so. Just saw this and thought it was worth writing this in. Thought it worth a shot!
    Thank you for what you do!!!
