Online Gambling Calls For Storm Relief Help

The most devastating storms ever experienced have ravaged the Caribbean Texas and now the state of Florida in the USA. It goes without saying that the relief effort required to rebuild the broken and destroyed areas will be monumental.

The many companies that are reaching out to help the situation includes the internet betting industry. The Calvin Ayre Foundation which is located on one of the hardest hit islands in the Caribbean is calling on other operators to support relief efforts. Antigua and Barbuda was directly in Hurricane Irma’s path, and its winds and heavy rain left a trail of devastation in its wake.

The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda Gaston Browne said he was stunned by the toll Irma inflicted on Barbuda. The island is said to be “barely habitable” due to the severe damage. The next hurricane to come along seems eminent with a new hurricane, Jose, forming in the Atlantic.

The online gambling industry is generous as a rule and the Calvin Ayre Foundation located in Antigua is spearheading efforts to help the tiny nation recover. Help is urgently needed and the online gambling industry pioneer is asking the global online gambling industry for assistance. Much needed supplies such as tents and clean drinking water and food are being donated with the Calvin Ayre Foundation pledging to match all donations by the global online gambling industry to Barbuda’s relief effort, up to $1million.

Cash donations can be sent to the Barbuda Relief & Rebuilding Fund via government accounts set up at banks including the Antigua Commercial Bank,Barbuda Relief & Rebuilding Fund account #100004717, Caribbean Union Bank and Barbuda Relief & Rebuilding Fund account #10001372.  Donations can also be made to the Red Cross relief effort by downloading the TickeTingEvents #helpBarbuda app from either the iOS App Store or Google Play, or via the TickeTingEvents website. To have the foundation match your donations send a copy of your receipt and the Calvin Ayre Foundation will add an equal amount to the funds generously donated.
