Benefits are nice, but...

By on

...you can get more money to those affected by donating directly to local charities who are working in the community:

Bread and Roses Lawrence
Greater Lawrence Community Action Council
Lawrence Emergency Fund
Andover Community Trust
Lazarus House Lawrence
MSPCA-Angell
Greater Lawrence Relief Fund

Your money will go further than if you donate to (for example) the Red Cross.

Room for both strategies

I personally agree, but these benefits are a great way to get money out of people who might not give a straight up donation - and they also get people to give donations by raising awareness of the needs.

The family of on of the longtime employees of Trina's Starlight Lounge was wiped out - house destroyed, person with stage IV cancer forced into hospice. They are doing both benefits and a gofundme for this extremely impacted family.
