Cigar for Warriors gets 501-C(3) Status

Just got this from Stan (mrdiver) and it has been posted over on The Cigarmy

Operation: Cigars For Warriors Receives 501 (C3) Status
National Charity Sends Care Packages To Men And Women In Combat Zones

For Immediate Release December 11, 2013 - Florida- Representatives from Operation: Cigars For Warriors are happy to announce today that they have officially obtained their 501(c)3 status from the Federal Government. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to sending premium cigars and cigar accessories to U.S. service members serving in combat zones and long-term deployments across the globe. To date they have sent over 100,000 cigars to military units around the world since 2012. What started out as a grassroots effort to honor troops is now an official nonprofit with dozens of volunteers and hundreds of donors working toward a shared mission.

***SNIP***

“Finally obtaining our 501(c)3 federal charity status is the culmination of what we promised the public on day one,” Board Chairman Storm Boen said from his home in Texas. “We are an above the board and professional organization. This is going to be something that will help us take it to the next level.” Boen continued.



This is good news.
