When I buy stuff on eBay, I often tick the box at the payment step to "donate $1 to...." - I don't really remember exactly what the donation goes to, but I believe it's often something to do with kids.

And why were it more eco-friendly than other poker tables ? No i havent donated anything to charity in a long time ... i simply havent because there are so much money that persons who dont need it takes . Imo charity is only making the rich richer ...
