Who doesn't need a little more improv in their lives? In this interactive, fun virtual event, we'll play some improv "fan favorites" to support a couple great nonprofit causes! We've chosen a couple veteran-focused nonprofits in honor of this event being on Veteran's Day. 

Key Details:

  • What are we doing? Facilitated by Kupe Kupersmith, we'll introduce a couple Improv games/exercises, share the goals and rules, and then jump into break out rooms to play them. We'll play 'Party Hoppers' and 'One Word at a Time,' and maybe a few others from this list of 15 Improv Games, which you can play with your teams, friends, family, neighborhood, etc. - https://teambuilding.com/blog/improv-games
  • Who will we be supporting? To participate, we're asking each person to make a $5-10 suggested donation to one of two veteran nonprofits we support as an organization: Hire Heroes USA or Vets2Industry
  • How can I make a donation? You have two options for making the donation:
  • What if I can't join the full 90 minutes? That's okay! If you can only jump in for at least 30 minutes, so you can play at least one Improv game, that works! 
  • Can I invite others? YES! If you have peers, friends or others who'd want to do some Improv for a good cause, this is a "the more, the merrier" type of event, especially since more people = more money going towards great causes! 
  • What if I have more questions? No worries, ask away! Send them to Erica Woods via [email protected]
