LOL! Comedy... for a Cause
NBT does anything but normal and our only fundraiser of the year is no exception. So, let’s talk about support!
New Brunswick is a great big place, but like all great places we have our ups and downs, issues, and causes to handle. NBT exists to bridge these needs and help people live better lives… BUT, to do that, we need your help.
Thankfully, New Brunswick is also home to a thriving arts and culture scene, including the famous Stress Factory, a comedy hub that brings in amazing comediennes and comedians. For the last seven years, we have put two and two together to help improve people’s lives through a night of gut-busting laughs and comedy. However, if the prospect of laughing till your face hurts alongside your colleagues and friends isn’t enough, below are the Top 3 reasons to support NBT’s Night of Comedy:
Do it for the Babies! [Youth]
We’ve all been there… or at least know someone who has. One thing is for sure, it’s stressful being a parent. And, for parents living in New Brunswick, the challenges are even greater. For example, most student parents won’t finish high school; and, poor families struggle to provide things like regular doctor visits, clothing, pampers and quality child care. At New Brunswick Tomorrow, we work to make sure that every child is born healthy and parents have what they need to excel in life, both for themselves and their child. To learn more, click here.
For the Hell-th of it! [Health]
Your health shouldn’t be ignored. We get it… and for many of us, that’s as far as we want to take the conversation. However, a person’s health is the number one indicator for living a good quality of life. For many living in New Brunswick,there are real barriers keeping families from seeing a doctor, eating healthy and active lives, and unsafe environments we call home. Through our focus on health, NBT is working to promote healthy lifestyles, help families prevent diseases, like Diabetes, and are breaking barriers to help individuals access care, when they want it.

AND, the third and final reason to support the Night of Comedy is:
Can’t we all just get along [Neighborhood Building]
At NBT, we support residents so that they can fully participate in the matters most important to them, their families and their communities. We help residents come together, strengthening their voice around tough issues, offering a grassroots approach to community development through supportive services, advice, information, and training to residents' groups. Additionally, our work around the neighborhood focus is to promote asense of community, safety, and economic opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs and small businesses. To learn more, click here.
