The Need Of The Hour
A balanced world is a better world. This Women’s Day 2019 – let’s all do our bit towards making the world a better place. Let’s aim for equality. Every year March 8 is celebrated as a day to acknowledge women’s achievements and contributions towards society.
This Women’s Day, Baazi Games has tied up with Vidya Integrated Development for Youth and Adults (VIDYA) - a non-profit NGO that specializes in the education and empowerment of less-privileged children and women. PokerBaazi.com will donate a share of the rake collected in the upcoming PPL Special Edition to sponsor a year’s education for 14 underprivileged girls - and of course, this is only the beginning!
We will see these 14 girls through their schooling years, thereby giving them the opportunity to grown, learn, dream and achieve. We will be taking care of their Education, Mid-day meals, uniforms and transport costs. This list of 14 will grow and over time, we hope to achieve a number that will create some impact.
This PPL, while we wish you the very best of luck, we simply ask that you open your eyes to the issues that we face in our country today and spread the word. The entire team at Baazi Games will be contributing towards this cause in one way or the other, and we believe that together, we can all make a difference.
PPL Special Edition
Since its inception in 2015, PokerBaazi.com’s popular tournament series PokerBaazi Premier League (PPL) has grown year on year in the domestic poker circuit. It was the very first league of its kind, and it is for this reason that we share a special connection. Our Baazigars have always enjoyed participating in the PPL and are constantly on the lookout for the next big announcement. Well, here it is!
The PPL Special Edition has been scheduled from April 21-28, 2019. The series will boast an overall guaranteed prize pool of 5 Crore+ and will include some exciting additions in the schedule. We have always tried to give our players the best possible experience and services, and this time we decided to extend our hands a little more. We hope that this is the start of a special and long lasting relationship with our welfare partners VIDYA and urge every #Baazigar to do their bit!
