Nominees-Best Charity Show


Artists who do shows and give the proceeds to charity are awesome in my book. It takes a lot of dedication to work on a show for months and then give all the money to someone else for the greater good. The following shows were all good to start with and made even better by the fact that they tried to make our world a better place.
