In recent years, poker has risen above other casino games to become a full-fledged sport of its own. Thanks to featured tournaments on ESPN to its prominent placement in the James Bond flick, Casino Royale, nearly everyone has an understanding of how the game works. Despite it’s all-or-nothing competitive roots, many play simply for fun.
And while there are still high stakes rounds to be played, some have found more creative uses for this famous game.
Place Your Bets
An organization called All in Together has found a great way to get together and play some poker while raising some money for a number of charitable causes.
It’s called AIT for Charity.
The premise is really simple. A person goes to their website here, creates an account, selections a tournament, pays the minimum buy in, and plays some poker. However, even though it’s poker and there’s a “buy in”, there’s no actual gambling involved.
The buy-in is just the minimum donation amount. That money, along with any additional money you wish to donate, goes to the organization sponsoring the tournament. The tournaments themselves aren’t for winnings. Just bragging rights.
If you want to win, you still have to play smart like you would in any poker game.

One of our partners, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, is hosting an upcoming tournament on December 19. The minimum buy-in is $3. If you’d like to play, just go the this page here.
All proceeds will go to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, one of the leading spinal injury organizations in the world. To learn more about them and what they do, please visit their official website.
When a customer purchases one of our new handicap vans, we donate $500 to organizations such as the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. These organizations do a great job of raising awareness and funding research that truly changes lives.
If you’d enjoy poker and want to help a good cause, we think this is a great opportunity.
