Proper No. Twelve Founder and Chairman, Multiple Weight MMA Champion Conor McGregor, made the announcement, “When I started this business, it was very important to me to give back. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation supports the brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way every day, and I’m proud to help them continue their work.”
Since its launch in 2018, Proper No. Twelve has supported first responders who act with valor and answer the call of duty every day for those in need, donating $5 for each case sold to local first responder organizations around the world.
“These are the people running into buildings when everyone else is running out. They are the people who protect us, who put their lives on the line to save the rest of us. I wish to give back to these proper heroes,” said McGregor.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s Fallen First Responder Home Program pays off the mortgages for the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty who leave behind young children. The Foundation’s goal is to ensure stability and security to these families facing sudden tragic loss.
“Conor McGregor has been vocal in his support of the first responder community, not just in his native Ireland, but in the United States and all over the world. We are honored and grateful that he has chosen to donate both his personal time, as well as proceeds from his Proper No. Twelve Whiskey sales to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Foundation Chairman and CEO Frank Siller.
The Foundation also wishes to thank Proper No. Twelve co-founder Ken Austin, who
introduced the Foundation and its work to McGregor, which led to this generous donation from the Multiple Weight MMA Champion.
