)-- American Tavern Poker has teamed up with Charity Poker America!! Charity Poker America is providing non-profit organizations a new way to raise funds. A three way affiliation that includes Global Poker Federation, the National League of Poker and Charity Poker America means that individuals that love to play poker can support a good cause by signing up for free online play. Each month that an individual plays free online poker a cash donation is set aside for the player’s chosen charity.
Incentives for players include:
$75,000 in cash and prizes awarded each month through sponsor advertising.
Special tournaments for participating in the “Play it Forward” referral program.
The satisfaction of knowing that it is all for a good cause.
Always Free to Play
Fundraising organizations can earn substantial sums of cash by participating in this remarkable program which is totally funded through advertising revenues. Players supporting a particular charity or cause help spread the word to their friends and family through the “Play it Forward” referral program. Whenever a new player is referred to Charity Poker America the choice of charity is defaulted to that of the referring individual. As the word spreads, more and more individuals are playing for a particular charity or cause which means more cash for good works. For additional motivation, Charity Poker America conducts mini-vacation tournaments for those that refer 10 individuals through the “Play if Forward” referral program. Winners of mini-vacation tournaments receive 3 days – 2 nights accommodations plus airfare to either Atlantic City or Las Vegas.
To become a featured charity, the organization must include a link to the program on their website and include a link to www.charitypokeramerica.com in one of their newsletters. With over 80 million poker players in the US alone… why shouldn’t good causes be helped through all that poker play?
ATPL Director of Operations, Damein Howell remarked, “This isn’t about a few people sitting down and paying substantial amounts for a good cause, it’s about a substantial number of people playing for free while advertisers fund some serious prize money and charitable donations. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”
