    Hi all,

    This is what we're doing. We are collecting donations here for the Casinomeister's Haiti relief fund:
    http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/misc.php?do=donate

    Donations are made via Paypal and can be as much as you want as often as you want. $10 minimum.

    At the end of next week (while I'm in London no less), we will take these funds and donate them to You must register/login in order to see the link. and Calvin Ayre will match these funds up to $ 1 million.

    I also have to confirm these donations manually, so don't be alarmed if these don't show up right away. :D

    So be generous, and let's try and do what we can to help these people out.

    Paypal is a payment processor which is popular with ebay account users. Like Neteller but more widely accepted :)

    Very straightforward to open up a paypal account. Just visit here You must register/login in order to see the link. and register. You can then add funds to your paypal account much in the same way as with neteller or other online payment processors.

    In the meantime you can view who has had their donation confirmed by clicking on the Quick Links Tab in the menu bar.

    Look down and under miscellaneous is a view donations link.

    Or alternatively click here: http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/misc.php?do=donlist

    Can you take neteller?

    Edit: I see neteller are supporting the British Red Cross, rather than Oxfam.

    It would be easier if there were more methods available to donate. Insisting on PayPal is quite restrictive.

    Easiest of all would be to get casino operators involved, and allow players to donate from their casino/poker accounts into the Casinomeister relief fund. Making it easier to donate will lead to more money being donated, and more quickly.
    Since there are bound to be many other methods available, many members may well be using these.

    I have some reservations about a leaderboard though, the "whales" could make the minnows appear mean, which might put them off donating altogether.

    I do know that Haiti is among the poorest countries on Earth, and past troubles have left their infrastructure in a mess, so there is no question that help is needed, and quickly.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the generous donations coming in. Much appreciated and I know we're making a difference.

    The reason I'm using Paypal is because most US members have this (40% of the forum membership), and this is a ready-made plugin that didn't take much time to install.

    As for the leaderboard - I don't think anyone looks bad making a donation. Some people have already given elsewhere so they may be strapped. So for the whales making others look bad - I wouldn't think so :D

    Pardon my blonde moment... all I see under Quick Links/Miscellaneous is the usual 4 links... PMs, Profile, Subscribed Threads and Who's On....

    Am i looking in the wrong place or do we not have our donation leaderboard yet?

    And thanks for setting this up, Bryan. :thumbsup:

    The leader board won't be up for a couple of days yet. It's 11:50 PM on a Saturday night, and I still have the awards to finish :p

    Just another thought

    I sent out Fan of Oxfam to everyone on my facebook list, it tells also how to donate on their page and gives some great info on just what they do in the world.

    If everyone on the forum, who has a facebook account, sent a become a fan of this Org. and sent it out to their friends list, it would prolly generate more money, as alot of our real life friends dont gamble and what a better way to reach these folks and maybe get them to donate also as every little bit we do ,can only help.............laurie

    It's really what we have to do right now! I have donated to British Red Cross via neteller this morning. And I'm going to make the donation here again.

    What a great idea. I already made my donation to the Red Cross but if I happen to get some more funds I will make another donation.
