i whant to play for a year in a poker site and give to a ONG that helps children with special needs 70% of the bankroll i can keep, i already propose that to 2 poker sites and i am wayting to their answer, it would help if some people send messenges to the sites giving your support to that.
Who whats to help? its easy... just send an e-mail to [email protected] saiyng that you know what i am trying to do and you think its a good thing, my pokerstars username is: pockerlord27 or to Bwin to [email protected] saying the same and my username is: ivobessa1
if you realy whant to help in an other way my e-mail is **removed**

Sorry ivobessa obviously helping charity is a good thing but your post is breaking the rules at BRM and might get you into trouble with admin. Personal email addresses are not allowed but you could set up a twitter account and let people contact you that way.
I'm slightly puzzled. Why do you need the poker sites to agree. You can just give your winnings to charity they can't stop you doing that or do you want them to donate it for you. Are you expecting them to give you extra rakeback or something? Helping charity is great but you don't need support from anyone here unless you're raising awareness of a charity or want others to join and/or sponsor you. Otherwise your post comes across as spam.

Yes it is a great thing, but it would be interesting if you could explain why you need the pokersites to agree to your donations? (I'm not trying to be qute, seriously interested in how this would work?)

well, its honorable to give money to charity but i just dont get why you have to do this "officially" with a sites agreement. furthermore i think its not allowed to post your emaiadress. just keep your charity for you, i dont see how brm could "help" here

He obviously want credit for his actions. Anyway, good initiative But as previous posters stated, just donate it urself.

I have a question, is this going to turn into you asking for money to play said bankroll for children? I am bit cynical because I've seen schemes like that start like good intentions like this one. Pardon my distrust if this is not the case

+1 sounds exactly like that to me. Sorry for being cynical, but it screams of scam. The fact he needs poker rooms to agree ?? to what? a free (largeish??) bankroll ?? and then from that big roll, he keeps some winnings?? WTF?
if you gonna do the right thing, just do it, but don't taint it cause then it comes out murky.

Well a different post i suppose. I wont be supporting you as I dont really understand what it is you are trying to achive? do you need support for them to allow you to do it? or support for the charity? Either way NO is the answer.
