Support the Nepal Relief Effort

Support the Nepal Relief Effort

Tuesday, 28 April 2015

The Nepalese earthquake has caused untold amounts of devastation. Thousands of lives have been lost, with many more people have seen their homes and livelihoods destroyed. Poker players are being given the chance to help the relief effort via PokerStars and their partnership with charity Care International.

For every dollar donated via the client, PokerStars will match it. The funds will be used to supply much needed shelter, food, water and clothing.

PokerStars has created a number of dummy tournaments. Every buy-ins from these events will go directly to CARE International along with the matched funds from PokerStars. You can also make real money transfers from your PokerStars account to a specially-created account called 'Nepal Fund'.

Donations will also be accepted via the VIP Store using your FPPs. Once again, PokerStars will match all funds transferred to that account.

$5 provides a family with emergency food for one day
$10 provides a family with clean drinking water
$225 provides emergency shelter for a family
