Welcome to Cigar Federation’s Raffle for Project Mañana!
Several weeks ago, Brian Berman of Project Mañana contacted Matt at Cigar Federation with regard to sponsoring of a child in the Dominican Republic. As discussed in the above video, Matt left that phone conversation trying to think of how he could help his friend Brian and Project Mañana to the best of his abilities. That led to Cigar Federation jumping on-board and Cigar Federation’s Raffle for Project Mañana.
Our goal over the next three weeks (beginning today, 8/19, and ending Friday, 9/6) is to generate as much funding for Project Mañana as possible. We have reached out to many of our favorite cigar manufacturers for support and now, we’re reaching out to you! With your help, we have the ability to change the lives of numerous children in the Dominican Republic – together!
You can find the full list of prizes below, but the list will continue to grow as we receive more donations from manufacturers over the next 3 weeks. We urge you to support this initiative as soon as possible to help us reach our goals. As a bonus, we’ve announced that the person who donates the most money will automatically receive the Crowned Heads prize pack! In the event there is a tie for this honor, the person who donated that amount first will receive the prize, so make sure to get your donations in early!
Additionally, while we are limiting prizes to one per person (winning the Crowned Heads prize pack is excluded – so you can win the CH prize pack AND another prize), if you donate $260 or more, you will be eligible to win TWO prizes. So, theoretically, if you donate $400 and are the highest donor, you will win the CH Prize Pack and have the chance to win TWO other prizes as well!
As stated, during the week of Sept 8th (the official date is to be announced soon), we will conduct a Live Special Edition of Cigar Chat to announce the winners. All entries will be compiled into a spreadsheet and we will use Random.org to pick the winners. If you have any questions, please contact Matt or Logan from Cigar Federation through a direct message. If you would like to email Logan, you can do so at logan@cigarfederation.com.
Good luck to all and thank you for supporting Project Mañana!

How your donation will be used: All proceeds will be allocated to the the building of Nutrition Center & Dormitory.

Blessed Leaf

Kyle Hoover, co-owner of Ezra Zion Cigar Company and CigarFederation.com, announces the launch of a new cigar-themed Christian ministry, Blessed Leaf.
“Blessed Leaf is a unique idea, something that has never been done before. It’s a faith community–or in more basic terms–an “online church” for cigar smokers.” noted Hoover.
On BlessedLeaf.com, aficionados can create a profile page to join the Blessed Leaf community. Members can post content, access media, read faith-based articles and cigar reviews designed to strengthen them in their Christian walk.
“I know two things: The Bible and cigars. This is the culmination of a dream to bring those two passions together. My prayer is that this is a catalyst for cigar enthusiasts to become closer to Jesus, whether they have a relationship with Him now or not.” Hoover continued.
Beginning September 4th at 6pm CST, “Blessed Leaf LIVE!” will air on the BlessedLeaf.com homepage. This hour long show serves as the weekly service and will air every Wednesday evening. It will be hosted by Kyle Hoover and Chris Kelly. Guests will include believers from all around the cigar industry.
“A major part of this vision is the Featured Contributors. I want to create a platform where these guys can share their testimonies and teachings that will bless and encourage the members of Blessed Leaf. These are BOTL that either work professionally in the cigar industry or are avid cigar smokers in full-time pastoral ministry. Guys like Brian Berman, Kip Fisher, Nate McIntyre, The Don Fonseca, and my pastor Niles Holsinger will be posting some life-changing stuff.”
