American Armenian billionaire, professional poker player, and Instagrammer Dan Bilzerian, his brother Adam Bilzerian and their family have pledged $250,000 for the Republic of Armenia and the republic of Artsakh, the Armenian National Committee of Canada reports.
The fundraiser has been organized by Canadian Armenians amid the ongoing Azerbaijani offensive against Artsakh.
“We Canadian Armenians, as well as Armenians all over the world are united and consider ourselves in a state of full mobilization to help our brethren in Armenia and Artsakh. Armenians across the world declare their entire solidarity with Armenia and Artsakh,” the organizers say,.
Dan Bilzerian paid a three-day visit to Armenia, where he gained Armenian citizenship and registered for military service. He then headed for Nagorno Karabakh, where he demonstrated his shooting skills at a shooting range.
