9th Annual Cigars for Troops Drive

It's that time of year again! Even though the holiday season is a couple months away, starting early will give everyone who wants to participate time to send a care package. Here are the previous years' threads:

Historic Donations
2010 - 525 Cigars
2011 - 587 Cigars
2012 - 676 Cigars
2013 - 1,343 Cigars
2014 - 1,617 Cigars
2015 - 1,619 Cigars
2016 - 1,484 Cigars

The basic rules:

*The cutoff will be October 31st for getting packages/donations in the mail to me. This will allow me enough time to get them shipped and the soldiers receive them before the holidays.

*This is open to anyone, whether you are a vet or newbie. The more the merrier! This is your chance to get that coveted "Troop Supporter" badge.

*Send as many cigars as you would like. Even a fiver will make a difference. Cutters and/or matches would also be appreciated, as well as sealed pipe tobacco, pipes, pipe cleaners, etc. Please, no lighters – I’m trying to avoid any problems with USPS.

*Cigars with cellophane travel better. However, if you have cigars without cellophane, feel free to send them. Any donations of 5/6 finger bags is also appreciated.

*Packages can be drop shipped to me from vendors. Members have done this in years past with success.

*Please PM me for my mailing address and/or if you send a package. I'd like to avoid boxes sitting on my doorstep in case I'm traveling.

*I will keep a running list of those that have expressed interest along with if I received the package. If you commit to donating early on and decide it can't be done, no harm, no foul.

*Paul (SenorPablo) has generously offered to cover all shipping costs. Thanks Paul!

Last year, I created a virtual humidor with all the cigars. Depending on the response, I might do that again this year. For those of you who keep track of your cigars in the virtual humidor or excel, providing a list of the donated cigars when you send them helps a LOT in this effort.

One other note: if you know of a group deployed oversees, especially in an area of conflict, please nominate them by sending me a PM. We typically send 3-4 packages, so I'd like to spread the wealth.

As always, feel free to post any questions!

It is a time commitment, but it is minuscule when I think about sacrifices made by our folks in uniform. It is really a pleasure to send something to lift their spirits!

Last year was kind of a quiet year, but I was still impressed with the turnout. I haven't been on CG much this year, but I'm already impressed with the interest!

I like your enthusiasm.

Honestly, I've been impressed with the response thus far. I try not to set goals since this is completely voluntary, and I don't want people to feel the need to send more than they feel comfortable sending.

Even if we don't get close to 2,000, there will be a lot of happy folks in uniform.

FDA PUBLISHES GUIDANCE ON FREE SAMPLE BAN                 Nowhere in the document did FDA address charitable donations of cigars. This has become a large issue for many because of Cigars for Warriors, a non-profit dedicated to sending cigars and other times to military members stationed around the world.

While Cigars for Warriors gets donations from individual consumers, cigar manufacturers donated large amounts of cigars to the organizations, which accounted for the bulk of the charity’s donations up until last August, when FDA regulations took effect.

Because no monetary transaction for cigars takes place, FDA deemed these donations illegal.

While a bill has been introduced to try to make these donations legal again, there’s little chance of it passing.

Consumers are still allowed to donate their cigars to Cigars for Warriors and Cigar Geeks, but even so, Cigars For Warriors has acknowledged its donations have been greatly reduced.                                                                                                       http://halfwheel.com/fda-publishes-guidance-free-sample-ban/181278

We have 14 people that expressed interest this year that will most likely send by the deadline. I also sent out about 30-40 PMs last night to members who traditionally donate every year.

So I expect we should get much closer to that 2,000 milestone.

Hey guys and gals! It's been a helluva year for me and my family and I haven't been around CG much, but I started "passing the hat" at work today and should have our usual crew's donations in the mail next week. I wouldn't miss this for nothin'! Several years ago, my nephew's unit was the recipient of one of CG's packages. They were very, very appreciative. And for those who may be on the fence, thinking you have to send the "best stuff", according my nephew anything is appreciated.

That's awesome. The donations look so neat and tidy. I grabbed cigars and put them in a bag. No rhyme or reason to my donation. Well, there is stuff that I'll never get to included in my bag. Figured the guys could enjoy them, instead of letting them sit in my stash.

You are more than welcome to send another package, but we have 4 more donations that I'm aware of that are in various stages of transit (including mine). If you want to see where we land, I should have all remaining packages in hand in the next few days.

The last day to get packages in the mail is today. If you send something, please PM me the delivery confirmation number.

This has been an extremely successful drive, so if you wanted to donate but just couldn't find the time to get it out, no worries. There is always next year!

Nothing to do with me - seriously. 100's of dollars spent can't come even close to what our military provides us.

it is well that we can come together in unity from time to time. Lord knows anything that can divide men seems to be the popular news to publish and exploit for every fraction of a click cent. 

thanks again Nathan for organizing this and thanks to all the brothers and sisters of CG for supporting your vision.

bstessl - 11/27/2017 6:33 AM Do we have a total for this year's drive yet?

According to Nathan's virtual humidor (http://cigargeeks.com/humidor/default.asp?action=humidor&member=nwb), it looks like 2015 total.

Question...not that this is what it's about, lol... but when do we get the Troops Supporter badge?  Just curious.
