"The difference between what we are doing and what we are capable of doing would solve most of the world's problems" Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi
The following are the 7 shelters and homeless help organizations in the Boston area we focus on, primarily because they are smaller operations, and we believe in what they're doing and the respect with which they treat the homeless. If you see something you like, don't hesitate to contact these great organizations about a donation.

Stop The Bleeding still needs a few things to more effectively put on our benefit shows.
If anyone would like to play Santa Claus and help us out with any of these things, let us know. Here's what we need:
1. Venues for our benefit shows. This has been and continues to be the biggest problem we have with getting these shows going. We need places that will let us use their room free of charge for our shows.
2. Monetary donations to help us cover our overhead i.e. Website cost, annual state filing fee, ink and paper for fliers and tickets, gas, additional live sound equipment, equipment repair, etc.
There are two things you can always count on in New England - brutally cold temperatures in the Winter and people who are homeless and unprepared for it. With this in mind we kick off our annual
Winter Clothing Drive for the homeless. If you have any clothing items you'd like to donate, it's easier than you think!
You can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can bring it to my workplace, Standard Electric Boston branch, located at 960 Massachusetts Ave. Boston/Roxbury/Dorchester line, down by South Bay. Thank You Chris Founder, Stop The Bleeding, Inc.
