It'll be five years this Thursday that my Mom died from
cancer in a Mt. Holly, NJ hospice after a three month final
illness. My brother and I were there with her as she died
peacefully in her sleep. It might be five years, but there
is still a loneliness you can't describe unless you feel it
yourself. During this season, doing good in her memory and
sharing the stories of those promotions who do is more
meaningful to me than ever, especially so after my own
challenges with cancer this year as I said last week.

In keeping with the season of light and the season of the
Christchild, the independent wrestling community reachs out
to those in need. Independent promotions hold a wide variety
of events to benefit various food pantries, fundraisers for
homeless or domestic violence shelters, provide funds to
efforts benefiting those suffering from cancer, heart
disease, natural disasters, veterans charities, local
natural disaster cleanup/relief, other community
efforts...and lots of Toys for Tots and similar drives.

Many of these promotions you'll read about below are the
ones ridiculed as being "outlaw mud shows", as being
unworthy of the time of mainstream media, promotions who
have issues with venues because they aren't "real
wrestling", or because of their product style are what
cheerleader mommies or local blue hair types view as
undesirable. New management of venues declare independent
promotions unsuitable for children and demand that scheduled
shows be pulled out of "their" venue, or just decide they no
longer want wrestling shows there (even if there's a signed
and binding contract).... leaving indy promotions without
the resources to sue for breach of contract to suddenly have
to find a new venue, as did Absolute Intense Wrestling in
Cleveland last year, to name just one of several.

So I make a point each year to show how these very same
promotions are major assets to their communities and to
those they help and to encourage you reading this to do the
same. One quote by Hamilton Wright Mabie represents the
spirit that these many promotions show each year during this
season we're beginning: "Blessed is the season which
engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
.

These promotions do just that. So may it be for us all.

As of December 2, the shows listed (that I have info from)
below have raised $93,506.76 in cash donations, collected
3,252 pounds (that's THAT'S WELL OVER 1 1/2 TONS) of
canned and non-perishable foods, 700 pounds of dog and cat
food, 80 winter coats, 3 bags of clothes, 1,730 toys for
Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, and other programs... and
things are just getting going.
