LAS VEGAS, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultimat Vodka has recently announced plans to support Action Against Hunger, an international organization committed to eliminating world hunger, to help raise awareness and funds for this important global cause.
Working with an organization called "I'm Tired of...," (ITo) Ultimat has created unique wrist bracelets made from recycled tires and metals, that carry the message "I'm Tired of Hunger." For each bracelet produced, Ultimat will make a donation to Action Against Hunger.
"By wearing the 'I'm Tired of Hunger' bracelet, people can do their part to spread much-needed awareness of world hunger issues," says Ed Brown, President and CEO of Patron Spirits International. "And for every bracelet that people wear, Ultimat will make a contribution to Action Against Hunger to help further their important goal of finding solutions to help conquer world hunger."

In addition to the bracelets, Ultimat and Action Against Hunger will also work together on future fundraising opportunities and events.
