1/20/10 – Microgaming's Poker Network has joined other leading online poker groups in raising funds for the disaster-hit Caribbean island of Haiti.
On 22 January, the network will run a Euro 10+Euro 10 buy-in tournament, with the Euro 10 fee being entirely donated to the Haitian Health Foundation, with Microgaming Poker Network matching all funds raised from the tournament.
Players can register for the tournament from any operator on the Microgaming Poker Network ( do it from here and get a $10 no deposit bonus). The tournament will commence on 22 January 2010 at 6:30pm GMT.
Haitian Health Foundation has been actively assisting the poorest nation in the Western hemisphere since 1985. Because of their long presence in Haiti, they have the infrastructure in place to utilise monetary donations in the most efficient ways possible. Over 92 percent of funds collected by Haitian Health Foundation go directly towards services for the poor, so players can be assured that donations generated from the tournament will be used to maximum benefit.
Donations can be made directly to Haitian Health Foundation at HaitianHealthFoundation.org.
