Microgaming’ continues the Gift of Giving campaign by donating £30K to four charities

Leading developer of live casino solutions, Microgaming, has recently announced that the company recently donated a total of £30,000 to four different charity organizations as a part of the campaign called 2018 Gift of Giving.

The Gift of Giving

The Gift of Giving campaign provides key customers and contacts the opportunity to vote for one of the several charities in their region.

In its sixth consecutive year, the campaign brought £30,000 that was split equally between four global regions, namely the Isle of Man, the United Kingdom and Europe, Africa, and Rest of the World.

Microgaming has donated £180,000 so far through its Gift of Giving campaign, a part of its CSR initiative PlayItForward.

Microgaming’s key players and contacts vote for the one of the twelve proposed charities across the four regions they would like to receive the gift. Those who get the highest number of votes, receive the gift.

This year, the organizations that scored in the top four were Heroes on the Water in the Isle of Man, Teenage Cancer Trust for the UK and Europe, Save the Rhino International for the region of Africa and Médecins Sans Frontières in the rest of the world category.

The vote took place in December 2018 and the results were announced just days ago.

The Winners

The Isle of Man winner, Heroes on the Water, is a charity established in 2014. It gives military veterans a chance to relax by kayaking and fishing at the same time, with the time spent on the water helping them to integrate and rehabilitate.The donation will contribute to the transformation of the training base.

Teenage Cancer Trust helps young people and their families battle with the awful disease. Europe and the UK voted just right considering the fact that each day, seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer each day in the UK alone.

Miriam Goodall, Regional Fundraising Manager for Teenage Cancer Trust, was excited with the news.

“Wow, what fantastic news to start the year. Needless to say we’re absolutely delighted. Teenage Cancer Trust wants to be able to support every young person with cancer and allow them to continue living their life to the full. With support from companies like Microgaming, we have changed the lives of many thousands of young cancer patients – now we need to reach the rest of them.”

Save the Rhino has won in its African region for the fourth time. They are fighting to stop the ongoing extinction of this endangered species for 25 years. Also the fourth-time winner is Medecins Sans Frontieres.

This charity has been helping the ones affected by epidemics, wars and natural catastrophes for 48 years.
