Bird City Comedy Gives Back

For Cyber Monday, we pledged to donate each of our submission fees received on that day to St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance.  The world's first food bank, St. Mary's helps provide food to thousands of people in need in Arizona and beyond. 

Today we're thrilled to report that Bird City Comedy donated $150 to St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance. Just from one day of submissions, we helped to provide 1,050 meals to individuals and families who may have gone hungry otherwise. 

Our next charity day will be Monday, December 21, 2015. If you're a comic and you haven't submitted yet, consider doing it on that date to help give back.
