10th 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
2017 - 2,135 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!

I'm in, PM sent. A cigar client of mine sponsors fishing events in California for wounded vets.   It is a huge event where he serves 800 meals.  Each veteran is given boots, waders, fly rod and chest pack with all the tools and flies he will need to fish.  It runs around $1500 per veteran and they have 8 to 10 vets each year.  We also have 30 to 60 people that attend this event for various reasons.
