Now first off....these things are not officially released to the public yet.....but due to the nature of this contest I foresee it will run for several weeks. Now I know contests are supposed to be fun.....and this one won't be. But it will be important. Everyone at SmokeStik wants to be sure ya;ll understand how heartfelt the development of this product was. Yes....we have a gorgeous television and movie star sponsoring it......Daniel Sunjata of Rescue Me fame. Daniel is the one who approached us and wanted to donate a portion of the proceeds to 9/11 first responder medical funds. And he was actively involved in the design as well. This is not a "paid advertisement" like a Nascar or a 10,000$ uTube contest....it's very real. And that is the basis of the contest.....one post per person will be strickly enforced....winner will be drawn at radom by a random generator bot. Prize....a complete Halligan kit and your choice of 2 5packs of cartomizers.
Post about what you ask? Post your personal 9/11 story.....it can be simply where you were when it happened....to how it made you feel and/or impacted your life later. This is not limited to folks directly involved in the tragedy. And I especially encourage former and retired military and first responders to talk about your feelings. I know that the X-Mrlorikay13 was f-ed up in the head for almost a year....former Navy SeaBee. He raged for weeks about feeling useless......all he wanted to do was put that uniform back on.
In Honor of EVERYONE who does or ever has risked their life in uniform.....as well as those in civies. There are many incredible stories that should not be forgotten....many, many unsung heroes who never got any recognition or glory. Like the hundreds of pest control applicators from all over the country who responded to try and control the spread of disease....the amatuer search dog teams...regular folks who gave up jobs and risked their long term health just to serve food to the "troops".......on and on and on....thank you ALL.
