Comic Relief for a Good Cause
June 24, 2020
We were all ready to host our annual Murder in the Manor murder-mystery evening in May, and so disappointed when it was necessary to cancel for safety reasons due to Coronavirus. That event helps a charity and everyone involved enjoys it so much. When it wasn’t able to happen, our team felt like we had missed something. We drastically needed something like this––especially right now.
Though everyone has had a unique experience with the pandemic, it’s likely a common thread that, at some point, we’ve all felt sad. Our team has spent plenty of time reflecting on this and decided to counter this sadness with a smile. Considering that some are not able to leave the safety of their homes, we will be hosting a family-friendly music and comedy show over Zoom so no one has to compromise their health and safety. Stand-Up for Coronavirus: A Virtual Comedy Fundraiser is an event that any person, of any age, can attend. All you need is access to the internet!
We found Jason Hewlett––an award-winning speaker and variety entertainer––who is guaranteed to lift our moods and get us laughing. Jason has delivered thousands of presentations over 2 decades and is the only speaker in the world teaching leadership in a performance of uncanny musical and comedy impressions, utilizing legends of the stage like Jim Carrey, Jack Nicholson, and Louis Armstrong. Here’s one great teaser for what Jason has in store:
It is only $20 per ticket to attend with the option of providing an additional donation if desired. All proceeds will directly benefit Heart to Heart International, a nonprofit that strengthens communities by improving health access, providing humanitarian development, and administering crisis relief worldwide. HHI has specific efforts in place for Coronavirus relief, like providing medical equipment, medication, supplies, and training to those who need it locally, domestically, and internationally. In everything they do, they work to broaden access to healthcare services and build capacity for health. It’s a lofty vision, but they take a step closer to it every day through support from great people like you. Here are some of Heart to Heart’s accomplishments thus far:
- Provided humanitarian service in more than 130 countries
- Has shipped over $2 billion in aid
- 1.1 million volunteer hours logged
