Free Bingo Website Supports RSPCA

January 29, 2009

Free Bingo website LiveBingo.com has thrown their weight behind the RSPCA’s efforts to encourage dog and cat neutering in the UK by offering a rebate service for a limited number of LiveBingo.com members.

LiveBingo.comFree Online Bingo website, LiveBingo.com, has placed its support behind a campaign to improve the affordability of pet spaying in an attempt to lighten the burden on animal welfare centres in these tough economic times.

Thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens are born every year, and the RSPCA strongly advises neutering at an early age. Neutering in the UK costs in the region of £180 for a bitch and £100 for a dog, which is an expense beyond the means of many households at the moment.

Play Poker with Motocross Celebs for Charity Tomorrow

October 9, 2008

Winner Receives a Seat into the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event

Motocross Rider Jimmy Button

I read on Card Player that The MGM Casino in Las Vegas is hosting the Fourth-Annual Road 2 Recovery Celebrity Charity Poker Tournament tomorrow at 4 p.m., and that it isn’t too late to register to join motorcross and poker celebs in raising money for charity.

Supercross celebrities in attendance will include the likes of Chad Reed, Jason Thomas, and Grant Langston, and poker pros Andy Bloch, Jennifer Harman, Joe Sebok, and 2008 World Series of Poker final table chip leader Dennis Phillips will also be there. The tournament is open to the public and the recommended donation to compete is $300. The tournament will allow $100 rebuys and add-ons will be for the first hour. The winner will receive a 2009 World Series of Poker main event, with second and third place finishers collecting a swanky Curtis & Company watch valued at over $2 000.

The charity that will be benefitting from this poker tournament will be the Injured Riders Fund for Road 2 Recovery, an organization founded partly by Jimmy Button, a Supercross professional who injured his back in an accident and is now finding a way to help others with the same ailments through poker.

In a recent press release Button stated that “The past couple of years have been especially difficult for industry riders,” before going to on to say that since his own recovery, he has dedicated his life to helping professional AMA licensed Motocross and Supercross members sustaining career-ending injuries with financial, motivational, emotional, and spiritual support.

At 26 years old, Jimmy Button was at the top of his career, but in January of 2000 he sustained a devastating spinal cord injury at his second and third vertebrae. Button’s courage eventually won him the race not to ride again, but to walk.

Players can preregister for the tournament online and find more information on the tournament at the Road 2 Recovery Website. The event is sponsored in part by Card Player.

Royal Gaming supports SOS Children’s Villages

September 15, 2008

From 15 September to 15 December 2008, RoyalGaming.com will donate $25 to SOS Children on behalf of every new depositing player at the following participating casinos/bingo halls: Spin Palace, Roxy Palace, EuroGrand, Jackpot City Bingo or Party Bingo.

According to Daniel Stratton, Head of Marketing, the team at Royal Gaming has long had the plight of orphaned and abandoned children at heart and decided to help make a difference to their lives by running the “Play for Charity Promotion”, whereby they pledge to donate $25 to SOS Children for every new player that signs up, deposits and plays at one of recommended Casinos and/or Bingo halls listed on the Royal Gaming website. All proceeds will be donated to SOS Children at the end of the promotional period, and distributed to the SOS Family Strengthening Programme in Mamelodi, South Africa.

This project offers specific assistance in the form of skills training, education, counselling, micro-loans and improved nutrition, to the most disadvantaged members of society, including child and grandparent-headed families, many of whom are affected by HIV/AIDS. The programme will help families to provide for their children and stay together through difficult times.

While a few online casinos have run promotions to benefit various charities in the past, this is the first time that an online casino affiliate advertiser has undertaken such a promotion. Stratton adds, “We’re sure that this will be the first of many promotions aimed at empowering the less fortunate featured at Royal Gaming, after all, it is a great way for people to make a significant difference while enjoying their favourite pastime. With the vast amount of wealth generated by the casino industry, Royal gaming just feels that is about time we give something back.”
