“First responders are the proper heroes of every community,” McGregor said on Instagram.
“Today, and every day, we honour the brave men and women who risk their lives for their communities.
For every case of Proper No. Twelve sold around the world, $5 is donated to local First Responders—up to one million dollars annually.”
This donation from Conor McGregor is in addition to the fact that he is selling “One For All” t-shirts on the Proper 12 website, with all of the proceeds going to the “Tunnel to Towers” charity. In addition to that, $5 from every case of his whiskey that is purchased also goes to helping first responders. This is an unbelievably beneficial thing for him to do for these charities.
