Canadian Casino Donates to Japan Charity
Canadian casino MapleCasino.ca have announced that they will be donating 50,000 Yen (around $630 USD) to the Japanese Red Cross Society in a bid to help aid work and encourage fellow casino sites to do the same.
The money will be just a drop in the ocean as Japan struggles to cope with the devastation caused by last week’s earthquake, tsunami and radiation leak, but MapleCasino.ca are hoping their gesture paves the way for other sites to follow suit.
As a member of Vegas Partner lounge, MapleCasino.ca is affiliated with a lot of other casino sites meaning that the likes of GoldenRivieraCasino.com, SunVegasCasino.com and 777DragonCasino.com could all yet contribute as well.
“When we heard that Japan had been struck by an earthquake, we did not expect this to be followed by a second disaster, namely the tsunami,” said Charlotte Jackson, Casino Manager for MapleCasino.ca. “The magnitude of life that has been lost is tragic and many of the earthquake and tsunami victims have loved ones to mourn.”
“With this in mind, we feel it is our duty to make a donation to the Japanese Red Cross Society, which we hope will benefit the victims of this disaster. We firmly believe that when these tragedies strike, it is important for businesses to step up to the plate and assist in any way possible.” Ms. Jackson concluded.
