The "Keep The Lights On" fund is designed to help pay utility bills for freelance poker media affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have spoken to the below employers on reaching out to their network of freelance poker media contacts to help us distribute funds for utility bills.

If you have been affected and consider yourself to be part of the freelance poker media community and have not worked with the above names, please reach out to a former employer with a utility bill to submit to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our due diligence to research if you qualify. Funds will be distributed as fairly as possible. In the case of excess funds, another round of utility bills will be asked for. Submissions will close May 11th, 2020.
RunGoodGear has been involved with multiple charity initiatives such as, Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, American Cancer Society, and Operation Gratitude. We pledge to be fair, efficient, and transparent as possible. In the case of the fund not meeting a $500 threshold, RunGoodGear will donate $500 towards the fund.
