UPDATE: This years effort was a smashing success! The Cigar Dojo raised over $1400 in orders for Gars for Gunners! 380 sticks and Smoke Inn matched another 380 sticks for a total 760 cigars to be mailed to our troops. The Cigar Dojo would like to thank everyone who helped with this cause, from the guys who actually placed orders to the guys like Jaelipp who organized a raffle to help get folks onboard as well as the guys who put up prizes for the raffle. We would also like to thank Abe, Bryan, and all the guys at Smoke Inn for helping us reach (and surpass our goal).
UPDATE: This just in… Abe Dababneh owner of Smoke Inn says they like our DOJO4TROOPS effort so much that they plan to match every cigar we send to the troops. If the Dojo send a thousand cigars, Smoke Inn will send an additional thousand cigars etc. Thank you Smoke Inn for helping us with this great cause!
Here are the details on what we are trying to accomplish…
Memorial Day is just about a month away and the Dojo would like to send our heartfelt thanks to our troops. After all, if it wasn’t for their bravery and dedication we wouldn’t be able to relax and smoke the cigars that we love. Our freedom and liberty is in their hands and for that we couldn’t be more thankful.
A few months back Dojo member jwalkingphoto came up with the fantastic idea that the Cigar Dojo have a “push” to buy as many cigars as possible and send them overseas to our military around Memorial Day. The Dojo contacted the our friends at SmokeInn.com who already have a “Gars for Gunners” program setup on their website and they agreed to help us make our goal a reality. The beauty of this program is that all we need to do is have Dojo members buy the pre-prepared Gars for Gunners packages (which are specially priced for this effort) and Smoke Inn handles ALL the rest. Smoke Inn will ship all the cigars overseas in our name (the Cigar Dojo). But wait it gets even better, for every dollar we raise towards the goal Smoke Inn will give back .25 to the Dojo for a future prize giveaway (maximum of $250). Therefore it’s a “win, win, win!!”.
