The Stars Group hurricane Irma emergency appeal

The most powerful Atlantic storm in a decade has wreaked unimaginable devastation across the Caribbean and Florida, leaving entire islands barely habitable and thousands of people without homes, food or shelter.

To give much-needed assistance to those who have lost so much, we have once again partnered with global relief charity CARE International through The Stars Group’s corporate giving program, ‘Helping Hands’. CARE urgently needs support to provide essential aid to the many thousands of people affected by these powerful and deadly hurricanes.

You can make donations via our software until October 6th, by registering to special dummy poker tournaments in the lobby, found under the ‘Tournaments’ tab (or ‘Tourneys’ in the app). Dummy tournaments are in the amounts of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, and €1, €10 and €100, corresponding to the amount you wish to donate. When you register, your buy-in will be added to the Hurricane Irma Emergency Appeal fund. You can donate via multiple dummy tournaments if you wish, and we will match every dollar donated via our software.

More ways to donate:

  • Transfers: Open the Cashier in the desktop client and select ‘Transfer to Player’. Enter the amount you wish to donate and put ‘Irma Fund’ as the recipient’ Stars ID
  • Via the Rewards Store: Log in to your account on the desktop or web client (unfortunately this option is not available on the Mobile app) and then open the ‘My Stars’ menu. Donations can be made using StarsCoin by ‘purchasing’ the relevant donation in the Store.

Whilst our immediate appeal will focus on the most vulnerable people affected in Haiti and Cuba, we are also aware of the loss felt in Florida; Helping Hands will also be working with our partners in Florida to identify those with the most urgent need for help and will soon update our players on how they can lend their support.

Donations made directly through the CARE International website will not be matched, as we are only able to match donations made using our software.
