Guinness x St. Patrick’s Day

200 Years of Friendship and St. Patrick’s Days : In Time for Milestone St. Patrick’s Day, Guinness is donating $1 to charity for each adult that dons a ‘Stache

This year marks the  200th St. Patrick’s Day Guinness will share with America, the latest reminder of the two-century connection between a legendary brewery and its good friends across the Atlantic. Once again, in the days and weeks leading up to March 17, it’s time for us all to embrace the stories we tell,  the memories we make and the bonds we build over a pint of Guinness.

The Guinness brand is encouraging all Americans, 21 years and older, to make a simple pledge (assuming they’ve already promised to drink responsibly, of course): gather with friends, new or old, toast to the many things we all have in common…and give a ‘Stache. Indeed, this St. Patrick’s Day, the Guinness ‘Stache – that unmistakable hint of foam left behind on the upper lip after the first sip of stout – is back as a symbol of the goodness and the Irish-ness that lives within all of us.

 From now through March 31, 2018, when adult beer lovers share photos of their ‘Staches – self-grown and groomed, drawn-on, or Guinness-enhanced – on social media (tagging @GuinnessUS and using #StacheForCharity), Guinness will donate $1 (up to $100,000) to the Guinness Gives Back Fund*, which supports nonprofits that contribute to the common good in our communities, including Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization.

“Over the past 200 years, so much has changed – yet so much has stayed the same, like people coming together to raise a pint of Guinness with their friends on St. Patrick’s Day,” said Guinness Brand Director Emma Giles. “We are proud to be part of such an enduring tradition that celebrates Irish heritage and, when it comes down to it, the power of friendship. The Guinness ‘Stache is a great way to bring that to life in a fun way for a great cause.”

The symbol of the ‘Stache will appear alongside Guinness brand activity at bars and restaurants and on social media throughout the St. Patrick’s Day season, including in some digital content that pays homage to 200 years of mustaches in America. To spread the word about the bonds a ‘Stache can build, the brand is releasing additional digital content that will help us all reflect on the friendships we cherish – and some very recognizable Guinness fans will also get involved in spreading the word.

In addition, it’s time for the latest limited-edition Guinness Draught cans, which will hit shelves in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The ongoing series celebrates the famed Guinness ad campaigns of the 1930s and ‘50s. While it doesn’t have a mustache, the kinkajou – which we thought was a sloth at first – will be featured on this version.

To keep an eye on everything the Guinness brand is doing and to get in on the ‘Stache action, follow @GuinnessUS on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Whether you’re making a new friend or meeting an old one, having a Guinness Draught, or ordering up any other Guinness beer this St. Patrick’s Day, please respect the beer and drink responsibly.

Jordin Sparks Kicks Off the Lay’s Smiles Experience in NYC!

Lay’s Is On A Mission To Spread Smiles Across America

From Smile-Inducing Bags to Operation Smile Partnership to a Pop-Up Experience, New “Smile with Lay’s” Campaign Spotlights the Power of a Smile

Your favorite Lay’s potato chip flavors are about to bring a smile to your face for more reasons than one.

Lay’s – one of the marquee brands from PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division – is on a mission to spread smiles in 2018. The brand is releasing specially designed bags featuring infectious smiles to create a ripple effect of smiles across the country in support of a life-changing cause.

For every purchase of Lay’s specially designed bags, a donation will be made to Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity dedicated to improving the health and lives of children and young adults worldwide who suffer from cleft conditions by providing access to safe surgical care. With support from Multi-Platinum Recording Artist and Actress Jordin Sparks and the launch of a three-day pop-up Lay’s Smiles Experience in New York City, Lay’s is giving fans the opportunity to see the power of sharing a smile.

“Lay’s wants to remind everyone that their smiles can make a difference in other people’s lives,” said Sarah Guzman, senior director of marketing, Lay’s. “As a brand that has been celebrating joy for more than 75 years, our ‘Smile with Lay’s’ campaign features a partnership with Operation Smile so that each time someone gets a Lay’s Smile bag, they also help to give a smile to a child in need.”

A recent Lay’s survey found that Americans believe that smiling makes a positive difference not only in their lives, but also in the lives of others. Nine out of 10 people said seeing other people smile makes them happy and a staggering amount of people (95 percent) also agreed they would smile more often if they knew it could brighten someone’s day.

“Our brain mimics emotions we see in others, allowing us to experience what they are feeling so we can better respond,” said Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage. “Since smiles are contagious, we need to make a conscious effort to smile more ourselves so that we can start creating a positive ripple effect with others. Research in my new book Big Potential shows the power of this ‘virtuous cycle’ – when you smile, it spreads to those around you, and then comes full circle back to you. One simple smile shows how connected we are to each other.”

Partnership with Jordin Sparks

Americans need a reminder to smile more often. Nine out of 10 Americans surveyed in the Lay’s study agree people need to smile more, with nearly 70 percent agreeing that, if we all smiled more, the world would be a more positive place. That’s why Lay’s kicks off its mission to spread smiles this week with the support of singer and Operation Smile celebrity ambassador, Jordin Sparks. With a recognizably infectious smile herself, Sparks is helping launch Lay’s Smiles Experience featuring unique installations designed to make its guests grin from ear to ear. The fun and smile-inducing experience is located in the heart of New York City at 4 Times Square between W 42nd St. and W. 43rd St. and open to the public from Thursday, February 8 – Saturday February 10 from 11:00 AM EST – 6:30 PM EST.

“Smiling is something that comes so naturally to me that it’s hard to ever imagine what it would feel like if I couldn’t share my smile with the world,” said Jordin Sparks. “That’s why I’m so honored to partner with Lay’s and Operation Smile as we encourage people to simply smile for a good cause. We have the opportunity and ability to help spread smiles and make a difference in so many kids’ lives one smile at a time.”

Fans can find Lay’s specially designed bags on store shelves in retail locations nationwide starting February 12 through April 7. To support Lay’s in its mission to spread millions of smiles, fans are encouraged to get a smile and give a smile. For every bag purchased, a donation will be made to Operation Smile up to $1 million. Starting in late February, fans will also have the opportunity to purchase custom Lay’s bags featuring their own smile at www.Lays.com.

HIP HOP + HEALTH

SMART RHYMES

VeganSmart uses music to entertain and educate on benefits of a Vegan lifestyle

In the Hip-Hop industry “beefs” among industry heavy weights are quite common and usually addressed in the studio with a diss track. The brand that has successfully built a bridge between hip-hop and health, VeganSmart, is addressing their “beef” with…well…beef and other factors that lead to diet related illness such as diabetes, hyper tension and heart disease with in a new track titled “Wise Words.” 

The single features John Lewis, better known as The Bad Ass Vegan, who drops his dope rhymes, combined with his knowledge, on living a plant-based lifestyle. Lyrics such as “No, it’s not your fault/there’s education out that nobody taught from the time you were born. They got you ready for GMO pork, as a kid when they introduced you to a spork. Man, they’ll put anything together because they know you’ll eat anything they tell ya,” are used not to shame or judge, but encourage people to pay attention to what they are putting in their bodies. Hip-Hop influencers Styles P, DJ Envy, Angela Yee, Lil Cease and even Moby make appearances in the video that accompanies the track.
 
VeganSmart is focused on addressing nutrition-related chronic diseases in underserved communities through education and by offering plant-based solutions to satisfy hunger and improve overall health. Their efforts to spread this message have been successful thanks to a partnership with rapper Styles P and his chain of Juices for Life juice bars. The team has also garnered support in bringing health education to underserved communities from Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity Inc.

“Wise Words” is available for purchase on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music.

 
Claude Tellis and Kareem Cook, VeganSmart co-founders and college friends, have always sought to educate and provide consumers with healthy food choices that would prevent them from diet related illness and poor health. They were responsible for having the state of California ban junk food from vending machines in every Los Angeles public high school and middle school. While banning junk foods in schools across LA is a tremendous accomplishment the men were unsatisfied. They wanted a larger platform to help Americans prevent common illnesses that plague the United States. Both Kareem and Claude’s families and many Americans across the country suffer from hypertension and diabetes, diseases that can be prevented or managed primarily based on diet. This passion lead them to launch of VeganSmart, a line of all-in-one, nutritional shakes. Co-developed with Health and Wellness Expert and Partner, John Lewis, the brand continues to motivate other health and wellness advocates.

 
With no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, preservatives, dairy, eggs, gluten or soy, VeganSmart shakes go beyond classic flavors like chocolate and vanilla, with delicious varieties including Wild Berries, Chai, and their newest line, Love is Love that includes flavors like Cookies N’ Cream and Chocolate Raspberry.
