It's now possible to donate mob points (money) for the typhoon disaster victims in the Philippines! Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) was one of the strongest storms ever recorded and it has caused widespread destruction in the Philippines. According to BBC NEWS' latest reports, the official death toll stands at more than 2,300, but local officials and aid workers say it could rise much higher.

It is a mighty fine and honourable thing for BankrollMob to consider the plight of the Philippino people and set up this system for donations! Thumbs Up

I have donated money through PokerStars and my local Red Cross. I have nearly enough points for a Mob Points Cashout and would like to complete that,...after which I will dontate Mob Points to the cause! Smile

Best thread for awhile!!!
Very good cause, just started working with some Philippino guy and he's doing a fund raising comedy event, so I guess this is something I'm thinking of now.

Will donate some points for sure Smile)
 Macubaas15/11/2013 21:50:23 GMT
I will definately donate too to this cause, i'm sure even that even as low as a dollar is important for those people!

As usual bankrollmob rocks and is willing to double up the amount of mob points that members are willing to donate. Thumbs up for that!
 Tomic189115/11/2013 23:55:59 GMT
i donated all my mobpoints and if everyone else does the same thing we can get a very nice sum together.
 optimus716/11/2013 01:46:51 GMT
Honestly I'm emotionally touched of this cause. My relatives in that region is one of the beneficiaries of this charity. Most people there were back to zero. Went there myself after the typhoon.
I live in the northern part of the country not affected by the super typhoon. Each Filipinos is doing what they can do too. Your's truly is a volunteer of the Phil Red cross by schedule. Our country is one of the poorest but most people are strong in spirit, loving and friendly. As you can see, even they're in deep sufferings, they still have smile on their faces. Not ashamed to tell the world they need help..
Again in behalf of my relatives and other countrymen, Thank you so much!!
Days will come, we can do the same too to your countries even we're in the 3rd world.
God Bless and more power to BankrollMob. Smile

The official nationwide death toll from the typhoon had increased to 2,360 by Friday morning. Other reports suggested the toll could be far higher, with thousands feared dead in Tacloban alone...
 Vagabont4You18/11/2013 07:58:55 GMT
A very nice gesture on your part that people really need... Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up
 Whitey18/11/2013 09:27:06 GMT
Thank you BRM for making this possible. About 4 years ago, i donated for Haiti, now i will do the same for the philippines.
 Calmplay18/11/2013 13:28:58 GMT
So far $552 was donated and at this rate we'll surely reach $1000 in couple of days Thumbs Up cmon guys don't hesitate to donate even if it's just 100 mobpoints as you can see above we have more than 500k members here and if each one of us donate 100 mobpoints... do the calculation Smile
 Macubaas18/11/2013 22:05:05 GMT
I made my first donation to this great cause, i would have donated more but i just made a cashout from BRM the day before the charity option was avaialble.

It would be great if at least the active members of the forums will make a deposit Smile
 CunteN22/11/2013 22:17:59 GMT
Donated $45, i hope it will make some change!
