I remember years ago a benefit would be held for individuals only under rare circumstances. You might see a (community) poster or notice once or twice a year. These benefits were held only for people who had very serious or terminal illnesses or life-threatening injuries. They would be held for individuals/families that had no insurance or were about to loose everything they owned.

Today it seems like everywhere I go I see 2 or 3 posters for benefits. Every store, telephone pole, commercial window-fronts, Nice n Easy, etc. can have posters on a daily basis. Please don't get me wrong, I totally support those in dire need of monetary help. But lately I am seeing benefits held for people who are doing financially better than me (2 cars, a house, a boat, a full-time job, etc.).

What is going on here? I'm having a hard time understanding some of this.

I don't get it either....every week-end there is a benefit for someone. Are all of these really needed?

You really need to know who you are supporting,I guess.

Yes they are. The only business and social events left in cny are "A-thons", slither/walks and Artsy fartsy footraces won people from Africa, who would be chased down and shot by the police on any other day of the year.
The economy has devolved into prisons. Government. Police and service industries like coffee shops. Nothing moves unless it's disguised as something else, a social event blah blah blah. Now it's fundraisers and walks for causes to support the crutched economy. Fun fun.

It seems like more and more people are getting cancers and serious rare diseases at an early age. I would think that the out of pocket costs (hotels, travel, meals) with going to the proper places to get the best treatment can be financially overwhelming for your average family. The way i look at it is if you dont want to help the person or family dont. A sign isn't doing any harm to anyone. I would rather help people that are up against something like this than someone sitting home on their rump collecting free benefits when they are perfectly able to work.
