A few months back, I helped start a little company, SpinforGood, that offers a new way to give to charity while having fun. It’s not legal in the U.S. to play games like slots and blackjack for real money online, but it is legal to play those games online for charity. So it’s our hope that by hooking up people who like to gamble online with charities, we can let people have fun while doing a whole lot of good.
We are running a special tournament today and tomorrow. In this particular tournament, I personally donated $1,000 of my own money to the prize pool to give people an extra incentive to participate. Which charities get my money (and yours) will be decided by the tournament winners. So for a $10 donation, you can have fun gambling and potentially win thousands of dollars for the charity of your choice.
If you are interested, check it out. I’ll be playing some under my own name, so you can see how I’m doing and try to beat me. When it comes to blackjack, let’s hope I do better than the one and only time I ever played live. I actually hit (by accident, while gesturing with my hands telling a story that the dealer misunderstood) when I had 21!
