Give Back to Real Refugees
The name Poker Refugees plays onto the concept of
poker players who must leave their home. Luckily for many "Poker Refugees" out
there hailing from the developed world, we have the means and ability to leave
one country for another, maintaining the same standard of living while
simultaneously having an adventure and life changing experience for the better.
In essence, we are really expatriates.
The true definition of
refugee is a person forced to leave their country in order to escape war,
persecution or natural disaster. We know that the demonization or regulation of
online gambling can hardly be compared to real persecution in truth. We
have the luxury and freedom of speech to liken one to another, but it's hardly a matter to take lightly.
True refugees struggle everyday,
year-round in countries worldwide. Today, an estimated 42 million people have
been forced to leave their homes due to conflict or natural disaster. These are
normal people like you and I, simply born into a different situation.
We can’t imagine what they are going through and want to do what we can to
This year, Poker Refugees would like to start a campaign to encourage
people to regularly donate to refugee organizations. We will do so each month
and invite our clients and friends to do the same.
Donate whatever you can afford, but if you donate a minimum of $100 to any refugee-related cause this holiday season, send us your receipt and we will
send you a free copy of the orientation guide of your choice to one of our destinations:
Montreal, Toronto, or Vancouver
- Costa Rica:
Jaco Beaches or Central Valley
Cabo, Playa or Rosarito
Here are some ideas of where to donate to:
Thank you for your donation
