Default Since you all read this at Absolute Poker

Firstly, thank you for crediting my AP account with $7497.

With that said, none of us have heard anything more about the alleged 2006 WSOP popcorn story and none of that money making it to charity.

If someone from Absolute can come in here and tell me which charity received your popcorn dollars and after contacting them I am satisfied that it is in fact a real charity and they did receive your money from selling $1 bags of popcorn, I am willing to donate every cent you just gave me, to that charity.

Anxiously awaiting further details on this.

It was Fuzzwah's Save The Children + Whales fund.

They definitely did send me the money.

edit for serious: Awesome gesture Schneids.

You can't go wrong with sending it to BarryG's Save the Children.

You should be heartily commended for this (and have your boomswitch activated).

I plan on donating some of this money to charity, regardless, though if AP never gives me my requested details I'm not going to be donating every cent of it to charity. Basically this $7497 was an unexpected bonus, and I plan on treating it as such. Since AP has ignored continued pleas in these bbv threads for more information about the popcorn story, it's time to up the ante for them a little bit and press the issue.

More importantly, was the popcorn any good?

PS: I vote save the children.
