Help the Haiti earthquake appeal with PokerStars

Help the Haiti earthquake appeal with PokerStars

Friday, 15 January 2010

The devastating scenes from Haiti have prompted PokerStars to do its bit for the earthquake disaster relief effort. The online giant has started a campaign that will enable poker players to donate funds to the Red Cross. PokerStars has also said that it will match each donation, dollar for dollar.

There are two ways to give money:

- 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'.

Tens of thousands of people on the Caribbean are thought to have died with millions more displaced. Players have until 31st January to help this very worthy cause.
