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 worthy causes such as clean water and other wellness initiatives.

For example… Did you know that 10 years ago over 1.1 billion people didn’t have access to clean water? Now it’s 660 million. That’s progress! Still, 1 in 11 people worldwide live without it. And dirty water kills more people than all forms of violence, including war. Thankfully, we can help end the water crisis by supporting nonprofits like charity:water, which is having a positive impact on health, education, and income – especially for women and kids.

Would you give someone clean water today?


Doing More Good

In addition to spreading joy through performing and speaking, Nels Ross, CEO of In Jest Inc., is striving to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes such as charity:water. This came out of a season of tremendous trials and losses which served as a reminder for him to do good by faith.

Besides growth in advocacy, Nels aims to commit corporate profits to doing good. With his background in education and respect for the field, he caps his income to match a school teacher’s salary. Beyond that and business expenses, he is growing In Jest to increase not his “standard of living” but his “standard of giving.”

Despite “ridiculous travel and hours” at times, and 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.

In Jest is currently pursuing projects and partnerships with several nonprofits. He’s 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.

Would You Help Spread the Word?

It’s humbling to realize how much good we get 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, we’re paying 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.
