I am trying to donate my $200 winnings from a $25 ND at Grande Vegas through Grande Vegas to a Haiti fund. Not sure how this will pan-out, as I am having a little issue with the payout (faxback stuff) ...but as I am a low-roller and can't afford to 'donate' too much....this, I thought, might be a cool way of donating.

I don't feel like I can gamble too much when others are suffering as much as they are.

I chatted with CS at Grande Vegas and they are looking into this.

Maybe, we can help, here?

Maybe...

..we can set something up here?

Casinomeister?

Suggestions?

How can we all get together and donate? Is there a way from us all as a 'collective' and then send funds?...a percentage of our winnings?

Maybe certain casinos can work with us and collaborate to 'win and send'.

Hey guys, you saw this PM from Bryan, right? :thumbsup:

The folks in Haiti really need our help. I've set up a relief fund at Casinomeister via Paypal. All members can donate to this fund (min $10 - max - $whatever you can afford$). We're running this until the end of next week and making the donation to Oxfam.org

The great thing about this is that Calvin Arye has stated that he will match our total donation up to $1 million.

The donations page is here:
http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/misc.php?do=donate

Within the next couple of days I'll be setting up a leaders board so that everyone can see who is donating and for how much.

Casino operators - let's step up to the plate and see what you can do.

More information here:

Cheers!

Bryan

Investigate who your donation is going to. This is a great time for scams/rip
offs and although the good people at CM want to give please use due diligence just like making a deposit into an online casino. Know where the money goes and how much of your donation goes towards the cause and how much goes to the charity provider for their expenses. I personally feel as though online casinos have NO business collecting funds but should rather direct the players to an accredited charity. Hell a big % of the users here think RTG is ripping them off. Donate with CM above on his banner or go investigate some other charity.. JMP..

Thanks Casinomeister for setting up an easy way for us to donate via pay pal.

As we sit here and have fun(most of the time anyway lol) people are starving and it only makes good sense to do what we can.

I think lots of emails have been sent to casinos asking if they would be willing to allow players to donate out of their accounts. So you might want to stay alert for that.

Yes, I donated via Casinomeister and also Unicef, instead. I have to send in a CAF document amonge the other documents which I have already sent , i.e faxback form, utility bill, front and back of credit cards and drivers licence to receive my winnings, so as I do not have a printer that actually works, I have to wait until tomorrow to do send in the last document ....the CAF form , at work.
You are correct, TOC and after thinking about it, they needed the funds now. When I eventually receive my winnings, I will send some myself again, via this forum.

I just thought it would be a good gesture, is all but the hassle of actually receiving my funds has left me almost bald.:rolleyes:

Is there any possibility to transfer the money to casinomeister? Cause i did not receive my new credit card, the old one is not valid anymore!

Otherwise you have to wait few days for my donation!
