This amazing project was the brainchild of TC’s founder Tom Szaky. Admittedly, many thought it was a bit harebrained but the company pursued the idea and has now launched the campaign.

So, if you’re a smoker or know someone who is, take a look at getting involved in this program. It’s a great way to earn money for your favorite charity and help keep the air cleaner for everyone.
