PokerStars donates money to Haiti

Lots of people all over the world have been very helpful the past week by giving money to the people in Haiti. And as always, when it comes to giving a helping hand to people that really needs it - lots of poker players around the globe have once again showed how big hearts they have. Take PokerStars for example. They started a Haiti fund almost straight away and promised to match the amount their players were willing to donate. So far, almost $480,000 has been donated (11 days to go before the fund is closed).

Well, let's take another great example on how helpful poker players (casino & bingo players as well) can be. Not long ago, kraemer, one of our mob members, came up with the great idea that mob members should be able to donate their mob points for Haiti. Of course, we couldn't say no to such a great idea. We have collected nothing less than $1,012 so far - with 2 days to go! I must say that it's great working for a site with so many users who are willing to donate their hard-earned mob points. A big thanks to all of you!

CLICK HERE to go and donate some of your Mob Points now. Your support will be appreciated!

We close for donations on Friday 22nd, 2010, where after we will send it all to any of the approved charities by Google crisis response.

It is good to see that people still care about others that need help badly, and fast!
Lets hope lots more donations come in before Friday, and that the money will be spent wisely.

We always hear about schemes at times like this for some to get rich with the willingness of others who really want to help those who need. I am glad to hear that Pokerstars is helping, just like BRM is, because this is also a way to show the world online poker is not a scheme to cheat players. Good job, lets help more!

its great to see the poker community coming together and supporting such a cause.
Lets face it there is so much money generated by poker and poker sites its silly.
But to see said poker sites and affiliates supporting these unfortunate victims is encouraging.
