GameTime FECs in Florida are working alongside Intercard to help facilitate donations for the victims of the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando in June. When purchasing a game card, guests at GameTime will have the option to make a donation to the OneOrlando Fund, a project of Strengthen Orlando, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation that is ensuring 100 percent of the funds donated are distributed directly to victims’ families and survivors in an open and transparent manner.
Intercard itself donated 66,000 account numbers for special rainbow-colored game cards that are emblazoned with #OrlandoStrong. “We expect to get $1 to $2 per game card, which will enable us to donate at least $66,000 to support the victim’s families and survivors of the Pulse tragedy,” said Mike Abecassis, CEO of GameTime.
“We’re honored that Mike and his team approached us with the idea and the opportunity to support the cause,” said Scott Sherrod, CEO of Intercard. “Mike runs a great organization, and he clearly cares about his community.”
