Dear <<Имя>>,

Another REG quarter has passed! In Q1 2015, REG had 26 new sign-ups, totaling 127 REG members by April 20. Our website got a fresh new look. And there's lots of new content on our blog. But these are not even the biggest highlights of the quarter – see below for more!

Sincerely yours,
Tobias Pulver, Executive Director

Charitable Initiative Of The Year 2014

REG was awarded the Charitable Initiative Of The Year 2014 trophy at the European Poker Awards! Thanks to the organizers, nominators and everybody who voted for REG! This award shows once more how amazingly well the idea of effective giving suits the mindset of so many in the poker world. Let’s keep it up together!

Quarterly report on money moved Q1 2015 published

From January to March 2015, REG donors gave an overall amount of $56,985. This is less than what was raised in Q4 2014 (due to the Christmas/end of the year peak in donations and a large donation by Martin Jacobson), but higher than the donations in REG’s first quarter, Q3 2014. We are happy to report an increase in total and recurring number of donations and look forward to all the upcoming opportunities for the next quarter.

Thanks to all of you for contributing to this great cause!

The King's Casino announces their support of REG!

A few weeks ago, the King's Casino announced their support of REG. Some of the world's best poker players met at the King's Casino for a cash game spectacle: The Celebrity Cash Kings. The event was streamed on pokernews – and some new REG trailers were shown during the breaks of the event! On top of that, the King's Casino installed a permanent REG donation box located near the tables, making it even easier for players to make a contribution.
During the Celebrity Cash Kings event, players donated around $15,000 to effective charities! And there is more exciting news on the way as the King's Casino recently announced a tournament series in late July with all the rake and fees of multiple tournaments going to REG!
