As many of your know, I have teamed up with Dan Smith and the Poker/DFS communities to try to raise $1 million for charities this year. We have been matching 1:1 donations for the duration of the drive. Currently we are $70,000 short of donations in order to reach $1 million raised!
I have been blown away by both the DFS and Poker communities response to this. Hearing various people’s stories and the sacrifices they are making, has really inspired me and I really want to make it to $1 million.
I’ve decided that if we hit the $1M mark, I will be donating an additional $200,000. To clarify, I will only be donating this extra $200k if we hit the $1 million mark. (Think of it as the Draftkings bonus for hitting 100 yards.)
The deadline is less than 24 hours away!
