As many of you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and so many are doing everything they can to not only raise awareness, but also raise funds to help in the fight against breast cancer. The popular online bingo site, Foxy Bingo, has joined in the battle to help in both ways.

The famous pink ribbon that depicts support of breast cancer awareness can be found throughout the online bingo room, and is even being used as a random bingo pattern. When players find the pink ribbon bingo pattern displayed, they are encouraged to join in the game as 20% of all ticket sales for these bingo patterns will be donated directly to the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Foxy Bingo hosts a renowned £1,000 GTD bingo jackpot every Monday night at 9 p.m., selling tickets for 10p each. For the entire month of October, 1p from each ticket sold in the £1k guaranteed game will also be donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign. Being a regularly scheduled online bingo game, players are able to pre-purchase tickets for the guaranteed prize pool, and all are encouraged to purchase generously; not only to help the cause, but for a shot at the £1,000 reward.

Foxy Bingo has always been one of the first online bingo sites to step up to the plate when charitable causes arise. Last year the online bingo site and its thousands of members raised £13,000 for the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Players who are hosting their own fund raising campaign for breast cancer awareness with a ‘JustGiving’ page are asked to send the details of their page, along with their online bingo account alias to pinkribbon@foxybingo.com. The online bingo room will instantly make a £20 donation via the player’s JustGiving site.

The fight against breast cancer has seen enormous strides through funded research and the survival rate for afflicted women is growing higher and higher with each passing year. Through charitable fund raising efforts like that of Foxy Bingo and other online contributors, we can all make the dream of a breast cancer free world one day become a reality.

For all of you online bingo fans out there, please make sure that your gaming dollars are going to good use by joining Foxy Bingo and playing the pink ribbon patterns whenever they appear throughout the month of October. If you’re going to be playing online bingo anyway, you might as well make those dollars doubly rewarding!
