Just One Shift

Renowned bartender gaz regan has recently announced the return of Just One Shift. The campaign’s goal is to raise $100,000 during a one week span with all proceeds benefiting Wine to Water. The charity campaign is simple: bartenders from around the world are invited to donate their tips from just one of their shifts during the week of May 12-18th.

The 2014 program will take place Monday, May 12 through Sunday, May 18; the first shift kicks off at 7 p.m. on May 12th at The Dead Rabbit in NYC’s Financial District where gaz will be a special guest bartender. All earnings are given to Wine to Water, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Doc Hendley, ex-bartender and CNN Hero from North Carolina.

According to to Just One Shift, “In 2013, its inaugural year, 327 bartenders in 34 countries participated, raising $40,000. The charity reports this amount can save 40,000 people from death due to water-borne illness for a full year. Specifically in Uganda, $40,000 can provide 10,000 people with clean water for 10 years.”

Want to be involved? Just visit Just One Shift’s website and sign up for a shift. Once your shift is done, you’ll donate your tips online.

What will gaz do if the $100,000 goal is reached? “Bartenders can change the world and last year’s success has proved it. If we meet this year’s goal I will shave my head.”

Let’s do this!
