Actor Daniel Sunjata Teams Up With SmokeStik Electronic Cigarette to Benefit The FealGood Foundation, a Non-Profit Dedicated to Helping 9/11’s First Responders
Toronto, Canada (July 21, 2011) - Actor Daniel Sunjata, best known for his portrayal of firefighter “Franco Rivera” in the critically-acclaimed FX series Rescue Me, (returning for its seventh and final season this month), has partnered with SmokeStik to create his own signature SmokeStik dubbed The Halligan.
25% of proceeds from sales of The Halligan will benefit The FealGood Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading awareness about the catastrophic health effects on 9/11 first responders, as well as to provide assistance to relieve these great heroes of the financial burdens placed on them since September 11, 2001.
“I decided to create the signature Halligan SmokeStik because I have great passion for the cause of helping 9/11’s first responders, especially after playing my role as a fictional FDNY firefighter. My partnership with Halligan SmokeStik will help all of the heroes who are still on the job inhale less smoke and simultaneously raise money for some of 9/11’s biggest heroes. Partnering with SmokeStik was a win-win for me,” says Sunjata.
SmokeStik, the electronic cigarette choice of celebrities everywhere, is a revolutionary smoking device that eliminates the cancer causing agents of tar, carcinogens, or tobacco, making it a much healthier alternative to a traditional cigarette, containing only water vapor and nicotine.
The SmokeStik uses only two parts, a rechargeable battery and a replaceable cartimizer (which contains the water and nicotine formula) and does not release any smell or second-hand smoke to those around you and it can be used anywhere.
Celebrity fans and users include: Leonardo DiCaprio, Catherine Zeta Jones, Tom Petty, Nick Nolte, Paris Hilton, Kevin Connolly, Audrina Patridge, Cory Monteith, Josh Henderson, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Ashley Greene and Nikki Reid of Twilight, and many more.
