Do you support problem gambling initiatives or organizations?
Over the years we've tried to be concerned about responsible gambling and support organizations that try to help those in need. But attending a working meeting on the topic, and at that meeting listening to someone who described in detail their experience and the challenges they still face, has provided further food for thought. So this week we're asking if folks currently have initiatives in place to help those in need. Besides voting in the poll, please share what you currently do, or any ideas about what you or the GPWA might do in this area. View poll
