Gaming Community Digs Deep for Haiti Relief
01 February 2010
The attendees at the recent iGaming Business Affiliate Awards program showed their generous hearts when they donated 65,000 British Pounds Sterling (about $103,371) to the Haitian relief effort. That amount was doubled by the Calvin Ayre Foundation, bringing the grand total for the donation to 130,000 pounds ($206,742).
The donation will be sent to Oxfam, in Oxfordshire. Oxfam is one of the companies spearheading relief efforts for the Haitian earthquake relief efforts. The money will be used for water, sanitation, (as in digging latrines), and health and shelter equipment. It will also be used to hire people to help in clearing the rubble and improving peoples living conditions. From the way that the men and women at iGaming Business Affiliate Awards program gave money, Calvin Ayre’s message was heard loud and clear.
