It's that time of year again! Even though the holiday season is a few months away, starting early will give everyone who wants to participate time to send a care package. Here are the previous years' posts:
The basic rules:
*This is open to anyone, whether you are a vet or newbie. The more the merrier!
*The cutoff will be October 31st for getting packages/donations in the mail to me – my address is in my profile. This will allow me enough time to get them shipped and the soldiers receive them before the holidays.
*Send as many cigars as you would like. Even a fiver will make a difference. Cutters and/or matches would also be appreciated. 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 if you send a package. I'd like to avoid boxes sitting on my doorstep in case I'm traveling.
*We are currently working out the details on shipping. However, if you would like to donate to cover any shipping costs, please PM me.
*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.
*If you would like to nominate a group of deployed troops to receive one of the care packages, please send me a PM.
Last year, I created a virtual humidor with all the cigars. Depending on the response, I might do that again this year.
