It is not often that you hear about online gambling companies spending their money on good causes, but it is becoming an increasingly popular trend. Online casinos are some of the most profitable businesses on the internet and operators are discover the value of using their money to help others.
The latest organization to announce its charitable activities is the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, a regulatory body based just outside of Montreal, Canada. It is currently making plans with a UK-based energy company to manufacture a wind farm for a city in Quebec called Shore Saint Cyprien de Napierville.
After the British company’s proposal for the wind farm was rejected by the local council, Kahnawake joined the initiative hoping to sway local opinion. Now that the Kahnawake Mohawks are involved, the program can be resubmitted as an aboriginal initiative, giving it a higher chance of being approved.
Currently, Hydro Quebec is now reviewing the proposal, and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission is hopeful that it will be approved in the coming weeks. To complete the project, $68 million is needed to fund the construction of the wind farm. A vast majority of funding will be derived from online gambling revenue.
The Kahnawake Gaming Commission has certainly found a way to put its profits to good use, and it is hoped that other online gambling regulators will follow suit.
