The devastating earthquake in Haiti, feared to have killed tens of thousands, has had most of us thinking we'd like to help in some way. PokerStars has been quick to facilitate this after previous disasters, and once again it is giving you an easy way to donate cash.
PokerStars players are some of the most generous people around, and already thousands have donated within hours of the appeal launch. All the money raised will go straight to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. to help it's relief efforts in the stricken Caribbean nation - and PokerStars has pledged to match every dollar raised.
The appeal is running until noon on January 31, and here's how you can get involved:
- In the PokerStars lobby, go to Tourney >> Special and enter one of the dummy 'Haiti Earthquake Relief' tournaments listed there. 'Buy-ins' range from $1,000 all the way down to $1. You will not need to play an actual tournament, instead all of the 'entry fees' go straight to the fund.
- Alternatively you can make a private player transfer for any amount to the account 'Haiti Fund'. Go to 'Requests' in the client top menu and select 'Transfer Funds'.
PokerStars thanks all of you for your support.
