For every picture received by our social media, we will donate 11 cents to the Patronato de Lucha contra la Diabetes de Santiago de los Caballeros, a local institution that fights against diabetes disease. La Aurora will also use all the pictures received to adorn their tabaquería, in the factory, in an effort to make everyone feel part of La Aurora Family. The campaign “Become part of the family” invites everyone to have their own picture hung in La Aurora’s facilities and we want to fill it all!

La Aurora is a family and we want to invite all our friends from all around the world to join our family this very special day in which we accomplish 111 years of history“, said Guillermo León, president of La Aurora. “We want to share the joy of this celebration with all our employees, with our international distributors, with the tobacco shops and with all smokers and friends, with a double challenge: fill the factory walls with the pictures of so many friends and make a generous contribution to the research of such a cruel disease as diabetes“.

The hastags that will be used to collect the pictures, in Twitter, Facebook ( and Instagram are #separtedelafamilia #uneteal111, #becomepartofthefamily #joinus111 and #LA111th.
