If the count hasn't hit 2k by October 25th, I'll contribute at least enough to get us up and over!


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
