It’s That Time of Year ­– Don’t Forget Behind the Scenes in Your Charitable Holiday Giving

posted on 10:00 AM, November 17, 2011

NEW YORK, NY – For most people, the holidays are a time of great joy. If you are seriously ill or injured, the holidays can be a very difficult time. There are few charities that can impact those in our industry as much as The ESTA Foundation’s Behind the Scenes program.

Behind the Scenes directly benefits entertainment technology professionals who are seriously ill or injured, from stagehands and designers to employees of manufacturers, dealers and production companies. Grants are tailored to each individual's needs and may be used for medical care and for basic living expenses.

A recent grant recipient, a soundman who toured the world until he became desperately ill, wrote, “I couldn’t believe that when I needed help The ESTA Foundation was there and didn’t turn their back on me. I am the crew guy - not the superstar. I can never thank them enough for their help and I can never thank them enough for the compassion they showed me in my true time of need. What an honor it is to be part of this community – it is a feeling I can’t describe.”

Please consider this worthwhile organization in your charitable holiday giving plans. Bring help and hope to your colleagues in their time of need. For more information about Behind the Scenes, to donate, or to apply for a grant, visit www.estafoundation.org/bts.htm.
