Donate to Japan relief fund

ps_news_thn.jpgThere have been few scenes in recent memory that have shocked the world as much as what's happened in Japan. The country has suffered one of the biggest earthquakes in recorded history, followed by a devastating tsunami that washed away whole towns and a nuclear power crisis that still has the country on edge. The country's suffering, death toll, and time for recovery are still indefinite.

Japan is a country of great resolve and determination, but it could still use the world's help as it works to rebuild. If you would like to help Japan as it works to recover from one of its biggest ever disasters, you can now do so through your PokerStars account.

PokerStars players can donate to the Japanese Red Cross relief effort by joining special "dummy" tournaments under the name "Japan Earthquake Relief', located under TOURNEY > ALL. There are options in both USD and EUR, ranging from 1 up to 1,000.

To simply find the Japan tournaments, click on TOURNEY>ALL, then type the word "Japan" into the tourney filter at the bottom of the list.

It is also possible to make transfers from your PokerStars account to "Japan Fund." In both the dummy tournaments and account transfers, PokerStars will match all donations dollar for dollar.
