Charity Jam at IO

This email was sent out via IO:
You are receiving this letter because we need your help. iO has designated April 30th - May 28th as All-Star Celebrity Jam for Charity month. All month in the Jam slot (Fridays at midnight) we will have the most talented improvisors in the city, as well as local celebrities, performing short-form games and Jam favorites--all in the name of charity. The success of this event is dependent upon the improv community and its friends all over Chicagoland donating their time and talent to pack the house.

Proceeds from the door as well as donations solicited during the show will go to Global Aid Network ( and will be used specifically to aid in relief efforts taking place in Haiti. Global Aid Network was chosen due to an iO performer's personal relationship to this organization. Kate Lambert performs on the team, You People. Her parents recently returned from Haiti on a relief mission and will return soon with Global Aid Network. The money we collect will help send doctors and nurses, like Kate's parents, back to Haiti with desperately needed medical supplies.
If you are able to help out, do not hesitate to get in touch with Colleen Doyle.
