Need Help with Poker + Charity Idea

I've been trying to come up with a good way to incorporate two of my big passions in life, helping shelter dogs & poker. I considered starting an organization that takes donations (with the main source of those donations being poker winnings) and then funnels that money to various animal rescue groups. I've been doing this already with my own poker winnings, donating them to different animal organizations, and was thinking others might want to do the same.


Some poker professionals struggle with the idea that they aren't adding value to society by playing poker all the time. Even as an amateur, I sometimes struggle with the idea that I'm spending a large amount of time at the poker table. In addition, some people love animals, but don't have the ability to foster, adopt, or volunteer. By combining some of the money won through poker with helping animals, then it can satisfy one's need to give back and help legitimize the time spent at the tables. It may also serve as a way to stay focused, sharpen your game through studying, and motivate you to get your grind on. Personally, if I start feeling like I want to make a loose call or some -EV play just to gamble it up for the moment, then I start thinking about the theoretical money loss, and subsequent decrease in the amount I will be able to donate. This helps me stay on my A game, and also gives my time at the tables a higher purpose.


I'm not sure of the best way to take this idea of combining poker & charity and make it into something bigger and better. As stated above, my first idea was to simply set up a way for people to donate a portion of their poker winnings. Then collectively donate that amount each month to an alternating list of vetted charities.


This is still very much in the idea phase and I'm looking for criticism of this idea, as well as any other ideas that could possibly work better.

In Michigan, we have charity poker rooms that run tourneys and cash games. They are run as non-profits and different charities are beneficiaries each night. They even have the charities supply volunteers to work the cage. Dealers are paid like $50/night + tips.

'Fear' is just a process     My ear blowing through the biting wind, the heart could not help but rise a feeling: that is afraid. Dark night, Cheap Nike Shoes a long field on the road I ride alone crazy walk on the way home, my heart again and again to tell myself not afraid! But when I passed a cemetery, my heart could not help speed up the speed of jumping, eyes from time to time to look at the cemetery to see two eyes, my mind suddenly emerge all the ghost stories I have seen. I am afraid of 'ghosts possessed', my heart and told myself that is just a superstition. But I could not help but speed up the speed of cycling, really want to immediately home! But the road or need to step by step, and now feel this road is so long, as if Nike Womens Heels Shoes not the end of the road. My surface is calm, but the heart is afraid! Finally saw the dawn of victory, my heart relaxed a little. When the light reaches the place, the heart is full of joy. In fact, there are a lot of life we ​​did not dare to try the first time, but you do not try, you can not get the kind of heart from the heart of joy, you can never win another of their own. Some people may say: I failed, how to do? I am afraid of failure, so I do not challenge Authentic Men's Nike Shoes I can not do things. If you think so wrong, the world is not only a successful life, there is no only a lifetime of failure. People always have setbacks in life, you face you did not do things, you retreat, that you are very weak! If you choose to challenge, to overcome, even if you fail, you will feel confident. Because you did it, failed to sum up experience from scratch! As the lyrics said, 'do not experience the wind and rain, how can we see the rainbow, no one can casually succeed.' In my opinion is afraid of just an excuse in life, overcome the fear of just need a process, the length of the process is the need for your own definition. There are many celebrities in ancient and modern, they are not born is a successful person. Their success is the need to step by step down to earth, they are afraid, but also failed. But they are afraid of the front and did not retreat, but to overcome! People see is always their brilliant life, people will never see the brilliant life behind. We can put in the first time in the fear, as another life in their own. You can not let the cowardly oneself live in the world at the same time, so that you will provoke ridicule Official Nike Womens Shoes and irony, so you are going to destroy that cowardly oneself. This process is a step towards your success. All in all, fear is just a process, the length of the process just need you slowly to consider their own. The process may be full of excitement, failure, etc., but I hope that every friend must go to challenge the process, always remember 'do not experience the rain and rain can see the rainbow.''Bird's Nest' chief electrician   In March 2009, a film called 'Rainstorms' was shot in the 'Bird's Nest' boot film, the film is the 'Bird's Nest' contact builders - Tan Shuangjian's struggle for the prototype.
