Cigar Obsession Charity Contest (Sticky Post)

Posted on Saturday, December 22, 2012 in World of CO

ipw0124I wanted to do something cool for the holidays this year but not the usual. I already give out more cigars than probably every other site combined, so I wanted to help someone new. This year I want to do a charity donation in the name of one of you! The rules are simple, I will match the number of entries by the end of the year on this post with a 1:1 dollar match. So if we get 100 entries I give $100, 250 entries $250 and so on. It will be in the winner’s name to the charity of their choice. I will draw a random winner on Jan 1st, to give everyone a chance. To enter you just need to comment below with what charity you would like to contribute to if you win. And please, SPEND MY MONEY. Hit the share buttons below and spread the word, I would love to write the biggest check possible! And hey – if any manufacturers/retailers want to go in on this with me, please click contact above. I would love to do multiple winners!

      Gotta leave a Charity name man – thanks!

      • Brian says:

        oops haha. How about tenth life. Tenth Life focuses its attention on the felines with severe medical conditions, conditions that would normally make it impossible for other shelters or rescues to afford the cats’ care.

        Instead of being euthanized, these ill and injured cats are saved and placed in foster homes until they can be adopted. Eventually, the organization wishes to build a shelter for all of their rescued felines that’s cage-free where they can lay around under like the pampered pets they deserve to be.

    I would like to contribute to Northwest Harvest which distributes food to food banks, meal programs, and in-need schools in Washington state. Thanks for your generosity, Bryan, and for thinking beyond the scope of the cigar community. Whoever wins, we can all be thankful to have someone like you out there.

    Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Great Idea Happy Holidays To All

  21. eric.hanson says:

    Bryan thanks for doing this. The charity I would like to have the money donated to is ELCA world hunger. Sadly 30,000 people around the world die from hunger every single day. The ELCA world hunger is one of the best charities at helping to end this because nearly every single cent donated goes directly to getting food and water to those in need, and hardly any of it goes to make the CEOs and CFOs of the organization richer. I highly recommend everyone consider donating to this charity even if you’re not a Christian because of the wonderful work they do. Happy Holidays every one.

    This is a great idea. God bless you Bryan. I would like the money to go to the HSRF (Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund) at sandy I live in NY and my town was very lucky.

    My vote is for the humane society. Save some puppies!

  52. MMolter says:

    This is a beautiful idea, and I really respect you for doing it.
    Looking at the comments above, there are many deserving charities, and one way or another, your actions are going to benefit some people in need, and that’s really cool.
    My submission is that it would be really cool to donate to the International Justice Mission.
    If you are unfamiliar with them, their website is, and in short, they are an international organization that fights for human rights.
    They regularly break up child slavery rings, sexual slavery rings, then create halfway homes to reintegrate the victims into society, and also they have lawyers well versed in the languages of many many countries across the world who fight for those who can’t protect themselves.
    Whether or not you choose this charity as the winner of this contest, I highly recommend that you and anyone who reads this check them out, and find a way to support them, either financially or by spreading the word about what they do.
    They are one organization that is truly making a difference in this world.

    • Wilson says:

      IJM is fantastic. Friends of mine have been on trips with them and helped to build a safe house for little girls rescued from the brothels of the Philippines. It’s a horrific reality in that part of the world and IJM folks put themselves in GREAT danger to rescue these very young girls.
