7 years ago, Joe and his family moved to Ireland to help build, what would become, one of the most recognized breweries in the country. All that hard work was cut short by the cancel mob forcing them to go home.
Seven years ago, Joe and his wife Chrissy made the tough decision to leave their home with their two young children, Ben, who was 3, and Bella, who was only 1, and move to Ireland to help start The White Hag Brewery in Sligo, Ireland.
Seven years of sacrifice meant hardly seeing their families or their friends. Watching their children grow up not being able to spend time with their family, or even get to know them.
That sacrifice was justified as they watched the brewery grow into one of the most known and respected breweries in the country.
Joe worked with breweries from all around the world. Anyone that worked with him would know what kind of person he was - an honest, down-to-earth, passionate man. Everyone who knows Joe will tell you this. He's one of the most curious and open-minded people I've ever met.
But, none of that mattered this past January, when a mob of keyboard warriors systematically destroyed their lives over a simple Instagram post of the Statue of Liberty crying...
His friends and family had to watch in disbelief as hoards of people, who had never met Joe, called him every name under the sun. Racist, homophobic, white-supremacist, bigot, etc. All because, like half of America, he wasn't happy that Biden won the election.
Left with no choice but to resign his position to save the brand that he loved and helped build, they're now forced to move back to Ohio, in the middle of a pandemic.
Flights are limited, and most airlines aren't flying dogs. This means that the costs of bringing their family pet are now hyper-inflated. No flights in the US are flying dogs, so they have to rent a car and drive from Chicago to Akron. Last minute arrangements for shipping all of their belongings back home, flights for 4 people, and pet moving has eaten through all of their savings.
So, would you please kindly consider joining me in helping this amazing family get back home to the ones who love and appreciate them?? Every little bit helps!
