Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 19, 2013
TrueTobacco.com, a leading purveyor of fine cigars and cigar-related products, will be donating all January 19th proceeds of the sales of Stampede Little Cigars to the global aid agency Mercy Corps. Mercy Corps helps people regain economic stability after the area in which they live has been destabilized, either through a natural disaster, a political upheaval or an economic collapse.
Throughout 2013, True Tobacco will be demonstrating its support for 36 organizations that have made a positive difference in the world. On a designated day, each of these organizations will receive all proceeds from the sales of one of the companies many popular product lines. TrueTobacco.com carries 150 brands of cigars and cigar-related products, and is adding more inventory every day.
"Every successful business has achieved its success through the support of its community," says True Tobacco's general manager Nick Gordon. "This is our way of saying, 'Thank you," to the community that has supported us. As a successful e-commerce business, our community is much broader than the geographic community in which we are based, so we have chosen to give our support to organizations that have broad national or international humanitarian mandates."
The Mercy Corps was founded in 1979 as the Save the Refugees task force. Initially, the agency focused on responding to the plight of Cambodian refugees fleeing from Pol Pot's murderous regime. Three years later, the organization's focus shifted from refugee relief to an effort to find more permanent solutions to hunger and poverty in parts of the world affected by major political, economic and environmental transitions.
In the past 33 years, the Mercy Corps has provided over $1.95 billion worth of assistance to the citizens of over 107 nations. Mercy Corps projects reflect the needs in different parts of the world that the Mercy Corps serves. In Indonesia, for example, the Mercy Corps has stimulated local entrepreneurship through a series of innovative lending programs and workshops that teach business basics such as drafting business plans.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Mercy Corps faced a dual challenge. They wanted to implement a strategy that would alleviate the rapid deforestation of the Congo River forest basin. They also wanted to protect the local women from the rape and assault they suffered when they left the relative safety of the village and went out looking for firewood. The Mercy Corps devised an innovative strategy for dealing with both issues by introducing fuel-efficient stoves that use manure as fuel.
In this manner, the Mercy Corps looks for solutions to problems that help people rebuild communities through sustainable economic initiatives. TrueTobacco.com is happy to give customers the opportunity to support the Mercy Corps while enjoying their favorite Stampede Little cigars at a very affordable price.
