Carlton FC is having a terrible season! At bottom of the ladder, they are losing. But while they own 290 poker machines in four pokie venues- more than any other club, the community is losing too!
Last year, they took over $17 million ($17.6 million) from the community to fund their footy club.
There are better ways to fund a footy club, like GWS Giants who have transitioned from pokies to childcare centres! There's momentum building in the community and in the AFL to get out of pokies.
Currently, the Carlton Blues are the second most harmful club. They also are persuadable on this: if they get enough of a push, they may commit to getting out of pokies.
The email to send to them is pre-written, all you need to do is add your name, address and hit send!
If you're a member of this club, please add in a line telling them that you are a member (tell them your member details if you're comfortable to do so) and emphasize that as a member, you want your club out of pokies! They will listen to you!
