Ante Up for Africa
The Ante Up for Africa charity is an excellent cause and something a lot more poker players should get involved in or then start their own project. So much is said about the wrongs and rights of playing poker on the internet, gambling laws and responsible gambling etc. But if poker players were seen to be doing even more good, than what some of them are already, then maybe people would keep quiet.
Ante Up raises funds for much needed charity work in Darfu. Then theres also the Enough Project which raises awareness about genocide and crimes against humanity.
Ante Up gets great coverage through the WSOP who have been great at promoting it. Poker players have raised lots of money by doing something they all love doing, playing poker. The added bonus is they have made people more aware of some of the humanitarian crisis taking place around the world and have actually done something to help, instead of just talking about how terrible it is.
