Alright, I admit, cigars and charity do not seem to be natural bedfellows. However, Matt over at CigarsbyMatt thinks that they go quite well together. He is involved in charitable activities by Ride for Kids and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation of the United States. Here is more information from Mattâ€™s blog:
The Ride for Kids is a fundraising organization that raises money specifically for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation of the United States which is a nonprofit organization devoted to research and treatment in the area of pediatric brain tumors. The Ride for Kids organization is made up of motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the US. They are headquartered in Asheville, NC. They hold ride events all over the country throughout the year to raise money and awareness for this disease. There are a lot of children in this country that are diagnosed with brain tumors every year. No one yet knows exactly what causes these tumors in otherwise healthy kids.
Though he has been involved in the ride for several years now, he wants to be able to give more. As such, he has created a donate-and-win contest wherein people who donate money to the ride can win 4 boxes of cigars. How does it all work? Matt shares:
Go to http://www.firstgiving.com/matthew2008 and make a donation. For every $10 you donate you name will be entered once in the drawing for one of four boxes of cigars. A $50 donation will get your name entered in the drawing seven times. So for example, a $20 donation gets your name in the hat twice, a $50 donation puts your name in 7 times, $70 would get you nine, $100 gets your name in fourteen timesâ€¦
1 box of Fuente Opus X Petit Lanceros from CigarsDirect.com
1 Box of Hoyo de Monterey Dark Sumatra Noches from Tobacconists of Cary, NC
1 Box of Perdomo Habano Corojo Robustos from Tabacalera Perdomo
1 Box of Camacho Corojo Monarcas from Camacho Cigars
I suggest heading on over to the site and making our donations now. Ten bucks isnâ€™t that much and if you have more to spare, this is one worthy cause that you would not regret giving to.
