Penny Appeal USA is a nonprofit development organization working to alleviate poverty through sustainable programs. Their mission is to bring about an equitable world by tackling the root causes of poverty, while bridging the gap between funders and poor communities in order to work together on long-term solutions that can help end inter generational poverty.
We teamed up with our favorite charity and some of the funniest comics in our space for a national tour to fight poverty! Penny Appeal USA and illMuslims present: Wallah She’s Funny – the latest comedy installment of the illarious series.
“illarious” captures the sentiment and experience of communities targeted by the anti-immigrant / ‘anti-other’ climate in our country today. The tour features material that cheekily explore the themes of ‘being misunderstood’, ‘being unwanted’, and the thought-provoking juxtaposition of being Muslim in America.
100% of proceeds go directly to Penny Appeal USA’s Women empowerment programs.
