No-Snobbery Wine Education is what Jones Is Thirsty does, but we also exist to help fight true thirst.
That’s why, earlier this year, we made NEVERTHIRST our charitable partner.
Neverthirst’s mission is simple: Provide clean and living water to the poor through the local church. But their aim is much higher. Neverthirst seeks to change the lives of people on both sides of this transaction. Neverthirst currently has projects in India, Central African Republic, Cambodia and Sudan.
Our first project was to fund a rainwater collection tank for a Cambodian family. We were able to knock out that project last month.
As a donor incentive, I gave away a Jones Is Thirsty tasting for six, including wine. The lucky winners randomly chosen by Neverthirst? Darron and Eliana Burke. Here’s the catch — the Burke’s live in Miami. (Guess I just assumed the winner would come from Birmingham, right?) “No Sweat,” said Darron without a second thought, “we’ll just fly you down.” And that was that.
Good news travels fast, and once word got out about the event, the Burke’s guest list quickly blossomed to more than 30. The more the merrier, we all agreed. The party, err, wine tasting was a blast.
Here are a few shots from the evening
We’re now working on our next goal — funding a well for an entire Cambodian village
(just like the one pictured below).
For this project, I’m giving away TWO separate tastings for six, including wine
(each a $1,000 value).
