Raise Money for the Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund

On November 8, 2013, the lives of millions of Philippines residents were forever altered by Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever recorded. To give much-needed assistance to those who have lost their homes and livelihood, PokerStars, through its corporate giving programme ‘Helping Hands’, has partnered with global relief charity CARE International to launch an emergency appeal. CARE International's current focus is on providing the immediate essentials – shelter, water and food – to communities hit hardest by this disaster. With your help, CARE International plans to continue to provide essential relief items and help families begin to rebuild their lives over the coming weeks and months.

You can help, too. PokerStars players can make donations to the CARE International relief effort via the game software, and PokerStars will match the total amount raised. So for every $1 donated via the game software, PokerStars will send CARE International $2. All the money will be passed on to CARE International, and will make a difference in the affected areas. All contributions are welcome!

Really great to see PokerStars facilitating such an easy way to donate. And it all adds up so even if you have a small bankroll just a little will help. Maybe donate the profit from your next session or tournament?

Thoughts going out to all those affected.

Those aren't real tourneys

"You can make your donation by registering for special dummy tournaments in the PokerStars lobby under the ‘Tourney’ > ‘All’ tabs. Please note that these are not real tournaments; they are simply a way to collect donations. Entering these dummy tournaments does not result in any poker being played. You can also find them by typing ‘Typhoon Haiyan Relief’ into the Tourney Filter."

Honestly I'm emotionally touched of this cause. My relatives in that region is one of the beneficiaries of this charity. Most people there were back to zero. Went there myself after the typhoon.
Each Filipinos is doing what they can do too. Your's truly is a volunteer of the Phil Red cross by schedule. Our country is one of the poorest but most people are strong in spirit, loving and friendly. As you can see, even they're in deep sufferings, they still have smile on their faces. Not ashamed to tell the world they need help..
Again in behalf of my relatives and other countrymen, Thank you so much!!
Days will come, we can do the same too to your countries even we're in the 3rd world.
God Bless and more power to PokerStars.

Just made a small transfer to "Typhoon Fund". Any deadline for this fund raising?

Still on downswing.

In behalf of my fellow countrymen, Thanks you PokerStars and PSO'ers.
