Ok Makers, we feature a lot of Altoids tin projects here on MAKE – and now you have a chance to win an unreleased new product from Altoids, if you happen to win, we’d like to do a project with the tin after the mints are consumed, heck we’ll auction the project off and give all the proceeds to the Red Cross too – so they’ll get double the donation – MAKE isn’t affiliated with Altoids or the Red Cross, we just think it’s a good idea and we love the “project case” that is the Altoids tin…

“This auction is for three tins of Altoids Chocolate Dipped Mints — they aren’t even out yet! If you win this auction, you will receive one tin of each flavor (Peppermint, Cinnamon and Ginger). We’ve taken our Curiously Strong mints and dipped them in dark chocolate. This Curiously Strong product will not hit shelves for months… this is your chance to be the first to own and try them. They are phenomenal! All proceeds from this auction will be donated to the American Red Cross.” Link to auction.
