Thanks for Helping Spread Joy and Do Good!

Every booking or referral can spread joy and potentially have far-reaching impact, since In Jest supports clean water projects and other wellness initiatives.

In addition to performing and speaking, Nels Ross, CEO of In Jest Inc., advocates more actively these days for charity:water and others. Ten years ago, 1.1 billion people did not have ready access to clean water. Today, it’s about 660 million. That’s progress. Still, about 1 in 11 worldwide live without it.

Stats vary depending on how you define ready access. The point is that we’re moving forward, and there’s more to do. Together, we can end the water crisis and positively impact health, education, and more – especially for women and children.

Beyond business expenses and Nels’ modest capped income, In Jest aims to give 100% of net profits to such causes, with a minimum 10% of gross revenue (travel excluded) and more as growth allows. So here are ways you can help indirectly or directly…

✓ Event planner? Book In Jest or subscribe to keep in touch.
✓ Friend? Spread the word to someone you know.
✓ Fan? Follow @NelsRoss on your favorite social media.
✓ Giver? Consider giving someone clean water today.

Dirty water kills more people than all forms of violence, including war. Yet about $2.50 per month can give someone access to clean water.


Doing More Good

In Jest is currently pursuing projects and partnerships with several nonprofits. We are also seeking ways to provide more free or reduced-fee services for organizations from Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY to Give Kids the World in Orlando, FL.

Despite ridiculous travel and work hours at times, as well as going without sick days, personal days, or worker’s compensation as a business owner, Nels is grateful for his work and general good health. That’s great news for the local and global causes he supports.

Would You Help Spread the Word?

It’s humbling to realize how much good In Jest gets to do, due in part to referrals from people like you. Frankly, it’s hard to track it all and thank people properly. So instead of referral gifts, In Jest pays it forward.

Would you help spread the word? Post, tweet, or send your friends a message, such as: “If you haven’t already, check out the uplifting performers, speakers, and programs offered by” If possible, tag or copy us so that we can thank you.
