As you know, January 12, 2010 last we saw a dramatic earthquake in Haiti. A devastating earthquake that killed more than 200,000 dead. A drama in which everyone was sad to see the images of broken families and orphans.
Following this tragic event, many groups of Poker and the stars of show business were organized tournaments to raise money for earthquake survivors.
A strong and honorable service, which proves that the world of gambling is not a group of “addicts” of earnings. Do not forget that online games are primarily an entertainment and even a hobby like any other.
It will not take long for the early tournaments and other events put forward to get the most money quickly to one of the poorest countries in the world. As you have seen, poverty and the shortage has become the typical image of Haiti.
Thus, many global stars have taken matters into their hands to help this population. Firstly, Wyclef Jean and Matt Damon took the first flight to travel to Haiti and support staff already in place. Following that, George Clooney has wasted no time in organizing a telethon.
Note that Annie Duke, Shannon Elizabeth and many poker players call for donations. Like Pokerstars who created “imaginary tournament” to get maximum money for the poor population in crisis. Not all, when you lodge, for example $ 1, Pokerstars automatically double the donation. An exemplary action.
If so want firm support to these organizations (Red Cross, UNICEF) and all structures put forward to raise as much money.
