Poker Kindness Campaign Continues To Snowball

Over $2700 pledged thus far.

Last week we brought you a post about iGaming Journalist Marco Valerio who began to gather minuscule Ultimate Poker reimbursement checks in an effort to give a little something to charity.

That small idea has now snowballed into a full fledged holiday donation campaign.

Valerio has updated his blog to mention that not only are people donating checks but others donations are pouring in as well and thus far he has $2741 in pledged donations and has collected $1666 of those funds.

Since his first post, Valerio has taken a little time to get to know Billy Vogel – who as you may remember also does a holiday season toy donation backed by the goodwill of poker players – and the two are going to team up in part.

Additionally, Marco is planning on supporting a charity in Las Vegas as well, using the power of poker good to support those in states where online poker is currently legal.

If you want to get involved, and we hope you do, check out Marco’s blog and follow the PayPal instruction. As Marco has already proved, a little goes a long way.
