Bodog Founder Commits to Match Igaming Donations for Philippine Disaster Relief Fund

Casino BettingCalvin Ayre, a figure well known in the Internet gaming industry as the founder of online gambling brand Bodog, has made a commitment to match Igaming donations placed for the victims of “Super Typhoon Haiyan” in the Philippines. The Calvin Ayre Foundation (CAF), which the Canadian billionaire established in 2005 as a way to make official his philanthropic endeavors, vows to donate up to one million US dollars. On top of the contribution match, Calvin Ayre, pledged to donate personal funds of US$200k for the same fund raising cause.

This denotes that if the global Igaming enterprise contributes as much as US$ 1 million for the typhoon-ravaged islands of the Philippines, the additional one million dollar donation that CAF will put up will bring as much as Php 85,000,000 in financial aid for the victims.

The foundation’s fund administration initiative is to give support by way of adopting one of the distraught villages located in the heavily devastated central islands of the Philippine archipelago. In line with this, Calvin Ayre is appealing to those who have more than enough financial capability, to consider the adoption method, as this means providing funds not only for disaster relief but also for life changing recovery projects as well.

Donors who prefer to place their monetary aid in other charitable institutions could do so, and CAF will still honor its commitment to match their donations for the Philippine Typhoon Haiyan victims. Donors, however, must inform the charity about CAF’s recommendation and email a copy of the donation receipt to haiyan@calvinayre.com.
