Going to be writing this post as Rifkin, not as the usual BaseTradeTV writer.
Hey guys. There are terrible things happening all around the world, but the focus most recently is in America. I want to help, and while I can't predict the future and know what businesses need help, or protesters need bailout, I do know that everyone is going to have their health affected by the protests and riots. People in America are putting their lives on the line just to be heard.
Doctors, medical staff, communities and the people in them, have all been struggling due to this pandemic, and with such large gatherings through protesting, I fear it will only get worse.
The charity I've chosen to support is https://www.gtcuw.org/ (a charity standing in good reputation according to https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=4660 )
More importantly, it goes towards relief in Minneapolis, where everything finally hit breaking point. I feel these people have been hurt the most, the closest, and will certainly be suffering from health issues post-protesting due to close contact & COVID-19. Thus, I have chosen to host this tournament as a means to try and raise some money for United Way.
