Bud Light promises to deliver the boos to the draft and for every submission they receive through April 25, Bud Light will donate one dollar to the NFL’s new Draft-a-Thon initiative.
The NFL announced the Draft-a-Thon earlier this week. The initiative is a massive fundraising campaign part of the 2020 NFL Draft aimed at raising much-needed funds for COVID-19 relief efforts. The Draft-A-Thon will be live-streamed on NFL social and digital platforms and featured in live Draft coverage on ABC, ESPN, NFL Network, and ESPN Deportes on April 23-25.
Donations can be made at NFL.com/RELIEF as of last Friday and there is also a text-to-donate option. The Draft-A-Thon will pay tribute to healthcare workers, first responders, and others on the front lines of the battle with COVID-19.
To date, the NFL family has raised more than $50 million in COVID-19 relief while Bud Light will donate up to $500,000.
The NFL Draft will be without an important tradition. And we just can't let that stand. Record your boos then post & tag @budlight and #BooTheCommish. We’ll deliver the boos to the Draft, and for each #BootheCommish thru April 25, we’ll donate $1 to NFL Draft-a-Thon up to $500K. pic.twitter.com/fnvcYDpZPW
