Cardschat and Its Members Give Back!
I had an idea for creating a "charity prop"for the month of March. I've recently seen some awesome stories in the news about athletes donating x amount of money to charity when they do certain things ( like 1k for every point scored, 10k per goal etc.) ...so I thought we should totally do something like this for poker!
Myself and a few cash game grinders talked it over and were going to donate a percentage of our profits to a charity of our choice next month. Personally, I'll be playing for The Greenview Foundation, which supports diagnosing and assisting in patients with Hepatitis C. (http://www.hepcfund.org/
) My Mom was actually diagnosed and successfuly beat this disease a few years ago so hopefully my donation can help assist others in combating this disease as well

This challenge is open to anyone, not just cash grinders . I'll be donating 10% of winnings, up to 5k. Feel free to donate any amount though, every little cent helps. It would be amazing if we could get a significant portion of CC behind this effort, so tell everyone you know about this!
