Charity Bingo On the Internet

The game of bingo has long been associated with churches and charities. This is probably why most people see bingo as a ‘soft’ socially acceptable form of gambling. Over the years bingo has raised billions for various charities. Until a few years ago most charitable bingo games were land based but now many bingo sites have partnered with various charities to raise money. A few years ago US President Obama’s stepmother launched a charity online bingo game to raise money for the UK based Sue Ryder Charity that provides services and support for those suffering from cancer. The games were well received and the bingo site sponsoring the games reported an increase in traffic. Ms. Obama was able to present the charity with a check for 27,000 pounds. ($43,684.90 USD)
