AS I SEE IT November 21: Still more indies helping for the Holidays

Bob Magee
Pro Wrestling: Between the Sheets

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

In keeping with the season of light and the season of the
Christchild, AS I SEE IT discusses each week how the
independent wrestling community reaches out to those in

Independent promotions have for years held a wide variety of
events to benefit various food pantries, fundraisers for
homeless or domestic violence shelters, and that provided
funds to efforts benefiting cancer and heart disease
victims, animal charities, natural disasters, veteran's
charities, local natural disaster cleanup/relief, other
community efforts...and lots and lots of Toys for Tots

More than a few independents, such as Hoosier Pro Wrestling
in Central Indiana, who were responsible for longtime
holiday charity efforts didn't survive the pandemic. Other
promotions have had changes since the pandemic in regular
venues they run that make these efforts impossible. But many
others have kept up or resumed their efforts now that the
worst of the pandemic has passed.

I'm asking all of you reading this blog to send me any
information on holiday themed charity shows scheduled from
now through the New Year at my
account, or to message me through my Facebook at

I'll post the events here weekly, as well as how they are
able to help their communities.

during the autumn through the Holidays with 9 new events
