USA - Behind the Scenes (BTS) - the US charity that provides financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals who are seriously ill or injured - has now awarded $1,000,000 in grants.
The milestone has been reached with the support of the wider industry, with numerous companies and organisations backing the charity via direct donations or by donating portions of its sales profits or service fees. “Every person or organisation who has made a donation, bought a raffle ticket or a holiday card, organised or participated in a community fundraising event, or become a Pledge-of-Support Partner has made it possible for Behind the Scenes to bring help and hope to our colleagues during some of their most difficult moments,” says the charity in a statement.
Grants have been provided to individuals from across the US and Canada working in every facet of this industry, from live events to motion picture and television production, broadcast, concert touring, corporate events and beyond. BTS is also helping those seeking financial assistance to enter mental health or addiction counselling. Meanwhile, the charity is working to develop a mental health and suicide prevention initiative that will provide information and resources to those in need or who are concerned about their colleagues.
