The World Series Of Poker (WSOP) confirmed yesterday that following two charity events at this year’s festival more than $1.3 million was raised for a good cause.
The $111,111 ONE DROP High Roller and the $1,111 Little One for ONE DROP raised a total of $1,081,194 ($553,278 + $527,916). On top of that amount a further $246,012 was raised for Guy Laliberte’s charity through the WSOP’s “Give 1%” scheme which encouraged bracelet winners to donate 1% of their top prize. The impressive total stands as a testament to the overall generosity of the poker community and will hopefully serve as another positive reflection on the game. In total the WSOP has now raised almost $7 million for ONE DROP which aims to deliver clean water to deprived countries across the world. Indeed, that figure will certainly be increased next when the $1 million buy-in event returns. Commenting on the efforts of players and the WSOP over the last two years, ONE DROP’s chairman, Guy Laliberte, said: “Again, we have created history! I am thankful to WSOP for their dedication and to the poker community for their generosity. The real winners are the people for which ONE DROP will provide access to safe water. These families can break the cycle of poverty and have hope for a better future. Together we have shown the world once again how giving the poker community is and that the ripple effect continues on.”
