How Lottery Made a Difference in the Frisbee Community

Millions of people play the lottery with the hope of winning huge amounts of money. Just imagine how much these lottery companies earn from all the tickets bought each day. If you feel bad because you weren’t one of the lucky winners, then try not to dwell on that negative emotion. Think of it as an act of charity because these lottery companies give back to the community including Frisbee groups – either by giving funds or sponsorship.

According to an article published in USA Today, college Ultimate Frisbee memberships in the United States increased from 9,951 in 2004 to 16,058 in 2011. Due to this sport’s popularity, it isn’t surprising if some of those huge lottery companies at www.lottery.net will start getting involved in this game. Many lottery companies have shown their support in various sport organizations in the past. A perfect example of this is the National Lottery Awards in the United Kingdom, which gives away funds to selected projects every year. One of its recipients was the Cheadle Hulme Club, which was voted as the best sports project at the National Lottery Awards a few years ago. The group believes that every child has a chance to enjoy any sport together despite their disability. Children’s Able and Disabled Sport (CADS) development officer, Gemma Castle, said that they do all sorts of sports, such as rock climbing, swimming, basketball, roller hockey, skateboarding, and a new sport, Frisbee golf. She added, “Frisbee golf had been included specifically because it is a very different sport and fairly new, so it puts all the children on a level playing field, as not a lot of them have played it before.”

In the United States, a huge lottery company in Nebraska has been supporting the Lincoln Ultimate Disc Association since 2008. Their sponsorship provided the leagues with much needed amenities including shirts and designed discs. The lottery’s proceeds also went to LUDA’s beneficiaries such as the Nebraska Environmental Trust and the Nebraska Opportunity Grant Fund.
