Online Retailers offer aid to Katrina Victims
Coral Springs, FL, 9/21/2005 — In the wake of Hurricane
Katrina, the entire country learned the sheer destruction that a
strong storm can cause. More than terrorism or conventional weaponry,
the unstoppable force of this hurricane left large areas of the
Gulf Coast ravaged. In some places it left nothing at all. In a
matter of hours, tens of thousands were left homeless, starving,
or worse, and despite the efforts of government organizations and
independent charities there are still far too many people who need
help today, as well as rebuilding their tomorrow’s. At this time
there are not enough resources to last the years it will take to
rebuild this region
Shakespeare’s Cigar Corp., has become very proactive in the long
term rebuilding effort of the Gulf Coast Region. They wanted to
make a difference now, and their response to this disaster has become
a Challenge to all Online Retail Operations. They have started
www.GulfCoastRebuilding.org, a simple directory for all online
retail stores who want to join in and give a percentage (minimum
10%) of their retail sales to their chosen charity from now, until
at least January 1, 2006.
Scott Shakespeare, president of the Company, had this to say, “We
challenge all other store fronts on the web to join with us in our
quest to help the Gulf Coast Region in their time of need. We will
post your store link, your charitable offer and support program
right here on www.GulfCoastRebuilding.org.
As the holidays start arriving, let’s think of our neighbors as
we shop, so their holidays may be just as enjoyed as ours.”
Both Shakespeare Cigar storefronts, Charity Cigars and Nonprofit
Cigars will give 30% of each and every product sale from its respective
storefronts to the following organizations;
www.CharityCigars.com will donate 30% to America’s Second Harvest
will donate 30% to Habitat for Humanity. Online shoppers are able
to buy products they desire and give to their specific organization
at the same time.
When several people and businesses join together in a common cause
great things can be accomplished. Shakespeare’s is doing what they
can to join the challenge and expand the needed cause Contact them
today and they will be happy to include your store, and your offerings
within the pages of

of the top cigar entities around the world.
