Bingo has been one of the most popular pastimes within both the United Kingdom and the United States for a great many years, and now it is using that position of prestige and influence in order to encourage its online bingo players to give something back to their community.

This is thought to stem from a time when the game first started out, and it was chiefly used as a means to help to raise money for charitable causes. This included private groups organising games as a means of collecting funds for a number of causes within the local community. It might not come as a surprise to those who are aware of this altruistic background, that the modern incarnation of bingo is striving to keep these noble roots alive.

This is also being encouraged by the fact that charities themselves are turning to bingo as a way of getting people excited about the idea of helping others. A superb example of this is the 'Benchwork' program, which aims to provide employment for developmentally challenged adults. They organise bingo games, which are held every Saturday, in order to contribute to the charities funds, enabling them to help more disadvantaged adults. A spokesperson for the charity has recently commented that these weekly games go some way to helping their causes.

With other well known bingo providers (such as William Hill) giving to charitable causes such as Breast Cancer Care, it seems that the 'helping-hand' reputation that bingo is cultivating shows no sign of going anytime soon.
