Online Poker Room Gives Aid
PokerStars, the worlds largest online poker site, have announced two different ways in which some of their thousands of members can do their bit to help the survivors of the devastating earthquake that recently ripped through China.
Members can register for one of six ‘tournaments' with a buy-in ranging from $10 to $100 – this is not actually a tournament but an outright donation. Another way in which members of the site can donate is by sending funds to a donation account set up by PokerStars' staff. In addition, PokerStars will match your donation dollar for dollar.
This means that every donation from $10 to $100 made by thousands of people will be doubled by the generous poker room before it is donated to the Red Cross to help people in China.
