    Raise Money for the Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund
    On November 8, 2013, the lives of millions of Philippines residents were forever altered by Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever recorded. To give much-needed assistance to those who have lost their homes and livelihood, PokerStars, through its corporate giving programme ‘Helping Hands’, has partnered with global relief charity CARE International to launch an emergency appeal. CARE International's current focus is on providing the immediate essentials – shelter, water and food – to communities hit hardest by this disaster. With your help, CARE International plans to continue to provide essential relief items and help families begin to rebuild their lives over the coming weeks and months. You can help, too. PokerStars players can make donations to the CARE International relief effort via the game software, and PokerStars will match the total amount raised. So for every $1 donated via the game software, PokerStars will send CARE International $2. All the money will be passed on to CARE International, and will make a difference in the affected areas. All contributions are welcome!

          Really great to see PokerStars facilitating such an easy way to donate. And it all adds up so even if you have a small bankroll just a little will help. Maybe donate the profit from your next session or tournament?

          Thoughts going out to all those affected.

Please note that these are not real tournaments; they are simply a way to collect donations. Entering these dummy tournaments does not result in any poker being played. You can also find them by typing ‘Typhoon Haiyan Relief’ into the Tourney Filter."
