Humble Beginnings

Charity can be a force that can melt any heart and give a player an edge over others when his heart is set on giving at least 10% of his winning to charity. Jerry Yang is one of those who is expected to grace the beauty of Las Vegas especially in its casino clubs because he seems to be odd there which is his winning edge with his heart of giving. There are two things on his mind anytime you meet him, his family and charity

When you won you made it very clear that you were interested in using your success to help other people. Tell us about what you’ve been able to do since we last heard from you.

“[Since] I won I’ve made arrangements to donate the 10% to the Ronald McDonald House, the Make a Wish Foundation and Feed the Children. But I’ve been really busy moving my family to our new home in central California.
I participated in a charity tournament for the Make a Wish Foundation and another one in San Diego with Matt Vasgersian, the announcer for the San Diego Padres.
In general I just try to spend as much time with my family as I can but it’s been difficult with everything that’s happening. I’ve been talking to the press and giving interviews and everything but it’s been great.”

What made you choose those three charities?
“Well, I have six kids and children mean a lot to me; they have a very special place in my heart. Growing up as a young boy I was very poor so I do know what it means to be poor and to suffer and to be malnourished and so all of these three charities are designed to help these children.”
Today, we are hoping that Yang wins more so that charity can be given to those who need it in our world.
