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 is last year's post:

http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=5894...

This year, I'm going to change a few things. The basic rules:

*Send as many cigars as you would like. Even a fiver will make a difference. My address is in my profile.
*Packages can be drop shipped to me from vendors. DocJazz did this last year 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.
*If you would prefer, a cash donation can be made to cover shipping. Last year the approximate cost was $60 to ship 3 large packages. I will keep everyone updated in case we have enough to cover shipping.
*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.
*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.

Last year, I created a virtual humidor with all the cigars. Depending on the response, I might do that this year - it takes a lot of time to do that, though.

As always, feel free to post any questions!

Now, time to break out the old coolidor....

I'm in as well! I'm not sure if I'll just send an order your way or go through the humidor. Either way something will be headed your way. I won't be around as much for a couple of weeks but after that I'll get on it. Hopefully, well before the cutoff date.

Thanks for running this again this year Nathan. It really makes for a hell of a nice xmas gift for the troops who are stuck over there during the holidays, depending on when you time it. Count me in as well.
