8th International Gaming Awards Gives BackPublished January 5, 2015 by Mike P
Four charities are set to receive vital funds when the 8th International Gaming Awards are hosted in London on Monday 2 February.
The 8th International Gaming Awards (IGA) have been planned for 2 February 2015, with the glitzy event to be hosted in London’s Savoy Hotel. Backed by a daily readership of more than 1,000 readers from all over the world, IGA 2015 will provide an informed critique of the global gambling industry, rewarding the most impressive companies and operators.
IGA’s Charitable Efforts
Another vital function of IGA is to raise money for charitable causes. Thus far, over £115,000 has been raised through the charitable efforts of IGA. And 2015 will be another year in which thousands will be raised for charities. You can read more about the four charities set to benefit at IGA 2015.
Without CARE International, more than 55 million people from 70 countries would struggle to survive. CARE International is among the first organisations to enter countries when disasters hit, providing shelter, safe food, and clean water to those in need. At present, the organisation is helping to fight the Ebola crisis.
Children with Leukaemia
Leukaemia is the most common of childhood cancers, which is why this UK-focused organisation exists solely to help in the fight. And, seeing as the UK government provides no funding to Children with Leukaemia, the organisation is entirely dependent on donations raised from events such as IGA 2015.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer
The next charitable organisation to feature is one of that is completely focused on fighting breast cancer. And, in doing so, Breakthrough Breast Cancer is in need of funds to help fund education, campaigning, and research to help beat this awful disease.
Responsible Gambling Trust
The Responsible Gambling Trust exists to help those afflicted by gambling and its associated problems. The organisation also uses its funding for education as a means of helping to prevent people from being addicted to gambling later in their lives.
