Welcome to the 1st Annual #VapesGiving!™
#VapesGiving™ is the time of the year that is
being set aside to give thanks and
appreciation for the countless hours and hard
work that our advocates put in to protect our community and
We have undertaken this campaign because so many organizations -- primarily those defending vaping at the state level -- have expressed a need for assistance in fundraising to allow them to continue doing their important work.
#VapesGiving™ offers the opportunity not only for you to donate to a spectrum of organizations, but to see your donation doubled thanks to the support of Naked 100.
Many of our country’s leading advocacy organizations will benefit from your participation in #VapesGiving™.
With respect and much gratitude,
The #VapesGiving™ Team

Q. Why #VapesGiving™?
A. The vaping industry is about to be inundated with new laws and regulations next year, so it’s more important than ever to make sure our state and national organizations are prepared to represent the interests of the vaping community.
Naked 100 wants to give back and support the federal and state industry organizations that are leading the charge on important federal and state legislative issues.
Q. How does it work?
A. Click the link and make a donation to the American Vaping Association during the Donation Period, which runs from 12:01 a.m. on December 13 through 11:59 p.m. (PST) on December 19, 2017. Naked 100 has generously agreed to match the total amount donated up to $190,000!
At the end of #VapesGiving™, advocacy organizations across the country will receive checks from both Naked 100 and the AVA.
Q. What advocacy organizations will benefit?
A. We anticipate that twenty-one advocacy organizations, including AVA, will share in the amounts donated by you and our matching donor. The majority of these organizations will be state-level advocacy groups that have shown a clear commitment to keeping vapor products accessible and affordable to adult consumers.
The individuals within the organizations who will benefit from this campaign are leaders in the advocacy effort in our country. These organizations have strong track records in standing up for vapers and challenging onerous legislation. Several organizations have created action plans for engaging the vaping communities on the federal, state and local level, as well as positive strategies for public relations campaigns.
The purpose of this campaign is to focus on a collective effort. At the end of the campaign, we’ll be reporting publicly how these funds have been distributed so you can see how your contribution is making a difference.
Q.What is an appropriate amount to donate?
A.The goal of #VapesGiving™ is to show that we are grateful for
the efforts and actions of our participating advocacy organizations. Your donation amount is is entirely up to you; no amount is too small or too large.
