Industry Helps Disaster Victims

Online casinos generate a lot of money, but not all of it is revenue and payouts. Recently with the humanitarian disaster caused in the US by the hurricane Katrina, one site is pitching in to help victims of this natural disaster.

Bodog online casino is putting on five benefit poker tournaments for the victims of the disaster and has volunteered to donate all the money earned from the online casino tournaments to relief agencies such as the Red Cross.

The U.S. Gulf Coast was severely damaged by hurricane Katrina leaving more than a million people in total confusion, without cloths, shelter, food or water. Bodog online casino is not the first gambling site to see the need to donate proceeds to charity. Many online casinos helped victims of the tsunami. . A large portion of New Orleans is reportedly under water and in ruins. Total damage may amount to over $25 billion.

Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog online casino made this comment: We are deeply saddened to hear of the many victims caught in the devastating path of the hurricane. So many people have been adversely affected by this natural disaster, and our benefit poker tournament is the least we can do to help ease the pain of those who were most affected.
