Aaron Paul And Bryan Cranston Join Ryan Reynolds In Donating To Bartenders' Guild

As I'm sure you're aware, the hospitality industry has taken an absolute battering during the Covid-19 outbreak, but some have stepped forward to give it a bit of a helping hand through these dark times.

Those people included Breaking Bad stars Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, who join Ryan Reynolds in their pledge to donate 30 percent of the proceeds from sales of their drinks to the United States Bartenders' Guild.

Aaron and Bryan, who own Dos Hombres Mezcal, put out a post bigging Ryan up, saying that they would join him.

Mezcal is the national spirit of Mexico, which of course features heavily in Breaking Bad, and as per their post, Dos Hombres will donate nearly a third of proceeds from all online orders.

The post, which encouraged people to stay at home to 'flatten the curve' (i.e. the rate that the infection spreads), tagged Ryan Reynolds, saying: "Good idea."

Of course, an economy that relies heavily on people going out and socialising has seen unprecedented damage caused to it already, with many fearing it's just the beginning.

But, if we can rely on anyone to lighten things up a bit, that person is Ryan Reynolds. He started the idea earlier this week, saying that his Aviation gin brand would be donating. His post read: "We'll donate 30 percent of proceeds as a tip to your bartenders - who REALLY miss you btw."

What a guy.

A number of brands have pledged towards USBG, including Jameson's. The USBG websites states: "Tending and owning bars is an honorable career choice. Our goal is to empower bartenders to take charge of their careers."
