The votes on where to distribute 2015’s pot have been tallied up and winners for the four regions were announced yesterday. Wish Upon a Dream, which provides special experiences to terminally ill children, is the chosen project on the Isle of Man, while cancer charity CLIC Sargent receives the funding in the UK and Europe category. Africa is represented by Save the Rhino and Cure Cancer Australia is the successful good cause from the rest of the world.
Gift of Giving is part of Microgaming PlayItForward, whose head, Claire Coleman, said in a press release that “over the past three years our Gift of Giving initiative has donated £90,000 to 12 incredible charities across the globe. I never tire of calling the charities after the votes have been counted to let them know they’ve won – it’s so heart-warming. Congratulations to all of the 2015 winning charities, and thank you to all our customers that voted.”
