Why is it important to support a charity that supports entertainment?

Entertainment is one of the tools for quality of life. Not as important as food, water, abode, and healthcare, but in the US the majority of the population has those. But other things offset them, such as stress, hard work, challenges, traffic, etc., and reduce the quality of life. Entertainment, for providers and receivers, gives us balance in our lives. Much entertainment today, is as stressful as traffic, etc. Live entertainment, far offsets lighted screens of games, social media, poor and bad content, etc., cause as least as much stress as they relieve.
