THE ABGB is partnering with DAWA (dawaheals.org) to offer their award-winning Hell Yes Helles as a part of their Can With A Cause program. The 16 ounce tallboy is wrapped in original artwork by DAWA’s founder, Jonathan ‘Chaka’ Mahone. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these cans will benefit DAWA – an innovative local Austin organization that serves as a safety net for people of color who are experiencing a short term life crisis. More specifically, people of color, who are musicians, artists, social workers, teachers and/or healing practitioners.
DAWA was started in September 2019, and has raised over $100,000 in support of the Austin community that it calls the ‘Community Frontliners.’ DAWA means ‘medicine’ in Swahili. The fund believes that medicine encompasses more than just pills, medicine can also be meeting people with practical, immediate resources that can bridge the gap when they are in crisis.
