Altruistic blackjack player RobinHood702 wants to give money to needy families

Last year, the anonymous gambler only known as RobinHood702 helped a young family in crisis through Vegas winnings, and he wants to do it again.

RobinHood702 asked for people to submit their stories to him so he could select a family that needed his help. Kurt and Megan Kegler went $35,000 into debt treating their daughter Madison’s brain cancer, and RobinHood702 selected the family from thousands of submissions received at his website, gifting a vacation and cash to the Keglers:

He then flew Kurt, Megan and Madison Kegler to Las Vegas first class, putting them up in a luxurious suite, taking them to shows, treating them to expensive meals and spa treatments. And this modern-day Robin Hood was true to his word, taking from the rich and giving to the less fortunate, handing 35 grand to the shocked and nearly speechless couple who went home with pocketfuls of $100 bills and newfound hope for the future.

On RobinHood702.com, the mission is explained as such:

But this year, the gambling do-gooder has gotten a friend to match his winnings and help an additional family in need. Dr. Richard Schulze is planning to match his buddy’s contribution, but he’s not braving the tables to win it:

“I want a thousand people — I want ten thousand people to do this. It’s one thing to hear about people helping people and it’s another thing to be there in person,” he said.

Schulze says he’s ready to give “thirty, forty, fifty thousand dollars” to the family he chooses. “Whatever they need to save their home, to get out of debt, to get out of bankruptcy, I want to help someone out.

“Really this is a story about Americans helping Americans. No one else is going to help us out and it’s time now to help each other.”
