Mochy's Matching Donation Project

Between  Tuesday and Thursday (March 15-17), I will play as many matches as possible on  the following backgammon servers: GridGammon, Safe Harbor Games, PlayWSOB, DailyGammon and  Play65. They will all be three-point matches, played for no stakes, unless the  opponent wants to bet. I will accept anyone. Novice and
Beginners are all  welcome to play. You will have the rare opportunity to play the #1 backgammon  giant in your home.

I am asking all who play me to donate $10 (or more)  to victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, regardless of the outcome of  the match. Each player can decide where to make the donation. (It would be very  helpful if somebody would please provide the information on how and where  donations can be made from each country.)
I  will also donate $10 for every match I play. This is the reason I am calling my  project “Matching Donation.” Alternatively, you could purchase one of our backgammon lecture videos  for $20 from Back-Gammon.TV. We will donate 50% of the sale to an  earthquake/tsunami charity.

The names of those  who participate will be listed here and
Back-Gammon.TV website, along with  the result of the match. 
I  hope to play at least 100 matches this week during the three-day  period.
Thank you very much for your kind support from all over the  world,

  2. I think it is a nice idea & I commend you for it. The problem with people reaching into their wallets when they feel bad about a disaster is no one is responsible for the money. There is over $5 BILLION missing while the Haitians are still living in tents. You send money via cell phones & it takes months if it ever gets there. I feel horrible about what happened in Japan & what it means for the whole world, I just don't think throwing $10 into the ethers or into a trash can would help the situation. GL with your project.
