The Montecristo Relief Organization is donating $25,000 to help the people of Joplin, Missouri, who are recovering from one of the deadliest tornadoes ever.

In addition to this donation, the organization will match, dollar for dollar, the first $75,000 in contributions made by the company's employees, customers and vendors until June 15.

To make a donation that the organization will match, you can send a check made payable to the Montecristo Relief Organization/Joplin fund to:

Montecristo Relief Organization
Joplin Tornado Relief
c/o Altadis U.S.A.
P.O. Box 407179
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33340-7166

Funds raised from this drive will be distributed to the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army and will be designated specifically for aid to Joplin.
