Thompson Cigar Co. invites customers to make a profound difference in the lives of neighbors and friends living with visual impairment. The program, already underway, gives anyone – from loyal customer to first time shopper – the opportunity to purchase an assorted collection of 10 empty premium wood cigar boxes, where the proceeds will be donated to Southeastern Guide Dogs, a world-class guide dog training facility. Southeastern Guide Dogs provides service dogs to allow the visually impaired mobility and independence, and Veteran Service dogs to comfort veterans living with post-traumatic stress, along with a variety of other noble duties.
Customers that wish to help may be eager to donate, but confused as to what should be done with empty cigar boxes. There are countless inventive ways to find a use for empty cigar boxes. Parents may hand over to children to use as a pencil case or sport card storage unit. Women and men alike can fashion an empty box into a unique and artistic jewelry box, and empty boxes make great catch-alls for golf tees and other household items. Also, most boxes are sturdy enough to be used for such imaginative purposes as a rustic flowerpot or change bank. The number of uses is truly limitless, and each box can easily serve multiple purposes.

Of course, the greatest reward for purchasing your boxes from Thompson Cigar Co. is the noble cause to which you will be contributing. To purchase these empty cigar boxes, go to http://www.thompsoncigar.com and search “cigar boxes.” Then click on “10 Premium Empty Cigar Boxes.” Donations will be made monthly throughout the course of this program.

About Southeastern Guide Dogs
Since 1982, Southeastern Guide Dogs has trained and supported more than 2,800 guide dog teams throughout the 48 contiguous states. It costs $60,000 to breed, whelp, raise, train, match, and provide lifetime follow-up care for each guide dog team, but the recipients of service dogs pay nothing Students and their dogs attend a 26-day intensive in-residence training period at Southeastern Guide Dogs’ 35-acre campus in Palmetto, FL . Exceptional dogs not suitable for guide work are placed into alternate careers that benefit veterans who live with post-traumatic stress. Gaining confidence from these dogs, veterans expand their lives, regain mobility and independence, and re-integrate into their communities.
