This is a discussion on Poker and charity .. within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Do you earn poker? If you earn then do you give part of the money you won to any funds and charity? Is the humanity
At the current time, I do not earn so much poker to engage in charity. But in the past, having good winnings, I helped my parents. I think if I won a major tournament - without a drop of regret 20 percent would give to charity.
I have struggled with this concept since I began playing cards. I have seen casinos destory people, and make people... so I've reasoned that it's how you regard the game, in relation to your circumstances. I saw an old man win 3 million, and donate 75% to a charity, stating he "...had everything he needed already." I usually use a portion of my winnings to buy something for someone I enjoy spending time with. Like a gift for a friends child just because, or flowers for a famly member, a purse for my gf, or I'll tip the taxi driver a little more then I usually would. I've brought someone to lunch, filled up thier gas tank, and taken them to a movie! I believe in the law of attraction... if you're bringing joy through your generosity, karma may provide to you with the cards, and luck you need to continue making positive impressions on the lives of the people you encounter. The power of positive thoughts can bring you far! You'd be surprised at how being humble can take you to the top in this game. There's an old saying- "That in order to recieve, you must give first earnestly."
Thank you all for not showing indifference to other people! On our planet, a lot of those can not survive without the support of others and your help now or in the future is just necessary for them! Very pleased that playing in your favorite game we have (we will have) the opportunity to help others! All you good mood and good luck at the poker tables!
