Jennifer Harman always has been a class act when it comes to giving back to her community and helping those who need it the most. So perhaps it isn’t surprising that the pro poker player has offered to donate 1 percent of her future poker earnings to the NephCure Foundation, an organization that funds research for life-threatening kidney diseases.“Kidney disease is extremely difficult,” said Harman, who has undergone two kidney transplants herself. “It is invisible, and it affects kids and adults alike. NephCure is trying to find an answer, and I’m here to help by joining ‘All-in for a Cure.’”‘All-in for a Cure,’ a pledge program organized by the player representative group Poker Players International, asks professional poker players to donate 1 percent of their winnings to NephCure. Lee Childs, Matt Glantz, Frank Vizza, and PPI founder Eugene Castro all have also made the pledge.“It is great to have someone with the pedigree and reputation of Jennifer joining PPI’s pledge program,” said PPI’s market head Eric Siegel, who has a son with kidney disease. “Having her involved in this program is a tremendous benefit to everyone, and I expect it to lead to more players coming on board. She understands the responsibility to give back. By doing so, hopefully we can find a cure for this horrible disease that affects thousands of people.”Last year, Harman hosted a charity poker tournament wherein more than 300 players donated approximately $107,000 to the National Kidney Foundation . Every year, she also hosts a charity tournament to benefit the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals .Harman has credited poker as something that helped her get through her kidney disease when she was a teenager.For more information on the Nephcure Foundation, go to nephcure.org .
