We’ve all seen the hate and division that is so obviously rampant in our country right now. We’ve all typed insults and exclamation points at someone’s racist uncle. If we’re honest with ourselves, we’re all starting to see that it doesn’t change anything. Raising money for people who badly need it does. This is an easy way that we can all come together in a setting that is inclusive and kind and have a great time laughing while knowing that every dollar raised is helping real people who need it more than anyone.
THIS ISN’T FUNNY has raised $780 in Austin TX and $880 and $1700 at two different shows in NC. I hope to keep this going and work with comedian friendsin different cities around the country to keep raising funds for refugee organizations. Hopefully this gets enough traction to eventually be a 501c3 and have a big presence that can make a bigger difference. If you know of a way to help me make that happen, I am all ears firstname.lastname@example.org
There are around 20 million refugees worldwide at any given time, people who have lost everything and sometimes everyone they’ve known. The US Government allows 100,000 refugees in each year around the country. This is a long standing program that is in danger under this administration. Refugees often wait up to twenty years before they’re finally able to come to the states. These people are coming from old conflicts and refugee camps where they’ve lived for years almost always without adequate resources like running water, electricity, appliances, solid shelter etc.
These refugee resettlement programs help these folks start over and have literally a new life. A place to live, groceries, help finding a job, help learning necessary language and getting around transit etc.
The funds raised at this event will go directly to International Rescue Committe (IRC) in New York City
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND COMPASSION. WE ARE ALREADY GREAT.
