LONDON, October 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
888ladies bring together bloggers for charity Bingo success!
Online Bingo site, 888ladies put their money to a wonderful cause over the summer and hit up a great number of Yummy Mummy bloggers to take part in a charity scheme that gave them £50 to play and win with 888ladies online bingo. The brilliant part was that the £50, and any winnings spun from it, were allocated to the charity of the blogger's choice.
The window of play took place over the weeks between the end of August and the beginning of October, with results just in.
A select 20 were chosen, based on their brief, biography and reasons behind choosing a charity. A huge list was compiled from some very exciting and lovely bloggers, all keen to do their part for charity and the bigger picture.
The grand total of wins came to £2,559- a highly impressive sum indeed from these domestic goddesses!
Every little helped, with each and every win accounted for and essential to the final total. As diverse as the bloggers themselves, the charities chosen were varied, meaning the money went both far and wide. Some examples of the bigger wins were bloggers, Nicquee Oblepias, who won £291.00 for breastcanceruk.org.uk, Neri Alipoon, who won £463.00 for http://www.redcross.org and Mye De Leon, who won £260.00 for unicef.org.uk
The community-based bingo site was proud to play their part in gifting the mums an initial £50 donation, which also went toward their chosen charity.
As part of the 888.com 2012 commitment to Breast Cancer Care, 888ladies is one of the bingo sites on the Joy of Bingo network that is contributing towards a donation of £20,000 to the cause this year.
Bringing like-minded women in the form of mummy bloggers to enjoy the game of online bingo, while raising funds for their chosen charities is 888ladies way of welcoming them to the site's rich community.
