I've noticed that a few bands this year are dedicating sections and even the entire band to worthwhile causes. If you haven't decided who you're playing mas with yet maybe a worthy cause can offer some inspiration.......

Section: A CURE
@RenaissanceMasRenaissance MasWe'll be donating a portion of the proceeds from those who register for our #ACure section to a Breast Cancer charity..PLAY MAS FOR A CAUSE!
Band: Toronto Revellers
The Toronto Revellers have introduced another section "Lullaby". One of the characters from Munchkin Land, a Ballerina in a sea of Pink, led by Section Leader Giselle "The Wassi One" Blanche who alongside the Toronto Revellers will be supporting Breast Cancer Awareness. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the local Toronto Chapter, not only will you enjoy the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival with the Toronto Revellers, but you will be supporting the fight against Breast Cancer, a very worthy cause indeed!
