Making Education Possible ‘From the Ground Up’

Laughing for a Cause

Join us on November 22nd at Absolute Comedy for a night of great standup comedy! Enjoy a fun night of comedy in support of the ‘From the Ground Up’ School Build for SchoolBOX in Nicaragua.

Laugh your head off with the SchoolBOX community and raise money to build the Las Nubes School in Matagalpa, Nicaragua.

Thursday nights at Absolute Comedy normally have 2 or 3 comedians with an MC, a feature act and a headliner. The shows last approximately 90 minutes. All shows contain adult content, but there is no age restriction for entry to the show.

Tickets are only $20 and available by emailing Natalie Gunn at

Education should be the right of every child. Tragically, in this world, education is a privilege and not a right.

Growing up, I never thought twice about my schooling. The basic tools for education: pencils, notebooks, school bag, the building to learn in, were never considered a luxury. That in itself is a gift that I, admittedly, took for granted. Sadly, accessibility to these items prevent children from around the world from getting a basic education.

In late 2016, I traveled to Nicaragua with SchoolBOX to participate in a classroom build. Witnessing first hand children hungry to learn has had a lasting impact. I was welcomed with open arms by children, parents and teachers whose eyes were lit by the possibility of promising change. I’ll never forget that moment for it is when the vision for this school build was born.

The From the Ground Up trip will take place during the summer of 2019. If impacting the lives of children through education is something that speaks to you, consider a volunteer trip with SchoolBOX and even join this group.

A child without education is like a building without a foundation. Each cinder block laid during this project creates immeasurable change. Let’s build a school together, from the ground up!
