Past Kindnesses

Year Three at Reflection Garden on Tap

This year we served as Ambassadors for the festival! This meant we got to run around, meet people, help with supplies, assist the artists, and celebrate all the generous people who made this event successful! With ticket sales surpassing last year's event, this festival went a long way in making sure the Reflection Garden remains a beautiful space of remembrance. 

You Know Me: Raising Funds for the ACLU

Our groundbreaking production, You Know Me, featured six real stories of abortion from members of our community. This one-night-only event gave a voice to an often silenced issue, and allowed women to share their experience, some for the very first time. All proceeds went to the ACLU to support reproductive freedom, and together we raised $500 with a single, powerful performance. 

Walk MS 2019

For our third year, we gathered together at Walk MS, along with 8,000 people from our community, to support the National MS Society's annual fundraising effort. This year we had a blast entertaining kids, helping families, and painting faces (a skill we did not know we had until duty called). With help from volunteers like us, the National MS Society is able to fund its important research and support of folks living with multiple sclerosis. 

Mission Improvible 3

Our improv troupe completed 10 hours of nonstop improv to raise funds for the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. As a part of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention month, we raised $1,675 to combat sexual violence and create a safer, more just world.

Helping Furloughed Goverment Employees

We gathered at Food Bank of the Rockies to help with an emergency distribution for those affected by the government shutdown. Because of this incredible organization, we were able to help 90 families (400 individuals overall) get the food they needed!

Trunk or Treat 2018: More Trunks, More Treats

Back again for our third year at Holy Trinity Lutheran's Trunk or Treat! This community festival provides a safe space for kids to get Halloween treats, while highlighting performers from the area. We always have a blast improvising for the families, and can't wait to do it again next year!

Donating Blood at Bonfils

To help with hurricane relief efforts, some of our artists conquered their nerves and gave blood at our local donation center. Did you know that one donation could save three lives?  How amazing! All it takes is an hour of your time and you too can make a life-saving difference, so consider giving at a center near you!

Reflection Garden on Tap 2018

We volunteered for our third year at the 7/20 Memorial Foundation's event to raise funds for their Reflection Garden. Commemorating the lives and heroism of those involved in the Aurora Theater Massacre, this garden serves as a place to reflect and come together as a community. During the event, some of our Humans manned the entrance to check IDs, manage tickets, and handle donations for this incredible cause.

Walk MS 2018

For our third year at Walk MS, members of Human, Kind volunteered their day to help run this event, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for MS research.  Check out this article for more on this year's incredible walk!

Mission Improvible 2: Nonstop Improv for RAINN

For April's Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, our improv team, Third Kind Improv, raised funds to support the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. Performing 12 hours of nonstop improv, we raised $2,125, which will help provide services to survivors, change legislation to ensure justice, and inform the community about sexual violence and consent.

Book Drive for World Storytelling Day

In conjunction with our production of Odyssey, the cast and crew collected books for donation to local homeless and crisis shelters. With the support of our community, we collected more than 400 books, and were able to share the gift of story beyond the stage. Books were shared with the St. Francis Center and The Denver Rescue Mission, two important organizations that offer essential resources for people in need.  

Improv at RiverPointe

Our improv group, Third Kind Improv, got together to perform a show for some fabulous local seniors. Offering enrichment and entertainment to older audiences, this show also helped us connect with a new part of our community and spread our love for improvisation.

Paper Crane Peace Project

Together with the 7/20 Memorial Foundation, we gathered to fold and assemble paper crane wreaths, gestures of solidarity that will be sent to victims of tragedy across the country. These symbols of peace and love are a true testament to kindness and humanity, and offer hope in dark times to those who truly need it. 

Trunk-or-Treat 2017

We returned to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for a festive celebration of Halloween! The event offered children a safe place to trick-or-treat while bringing people together for some improv comedy. Performed by Third Kind, this free show introduced new audiences to the magic of improv.

Love to Las Vegas

Love to Las Vegas was an improvised fundraiser to benefit the victims of the Las Vegas Shooting. Performed at the Mercury Cafe, this show featured two groups, Third Kind and Chatfield Improv, in a night of comedy to support an important cause. 100% of the proceeds went to help victims cover their medical expenses. Thanks to the generosity of our audiences and performers, we raised $250 in one hour! 

7/20 Reflection Garden on Tap 2017

We worked with the 7/20 Memorial Foundation to support this 5K. Reflection Garden on Tap showcased the beautiful and newly-planted Reflection Garden, raised money for its maintenance, and brought the Aurora community together to commemorate those who had been lost.

Planting the Memorial Garden

We were graced with the opportunity to help plant the 7/20 Memorial Reflection Garden. Working alongside the families, friends, victims, and first responders of the Aurora Theater Tragedy, we were able to have a hand in this beautiful tribute space.

We returned for our second year at the Denver Flea. Together with Two Parts Denver, we worked to support local artists and craftsman. Volunteering alongside event staff, we helped provide the people-power necessary to support this fabulous event.

LGBTQ+ You: A Variety Benefit for the Trans Community

To raise funds for the Gender Identity Center of Colorado, we put on a variety benefit featuring all LGBTQ+ artists. With spectacular displays of dancing, singing, comedy, poetry, improv, and acrobatics, we were able to raise more than $1,000 in support of Trans people in crisis. 

Return to Walk MS

We returned for our second year at Walk MS in Denver. With beautiful weather, adorable pups, and Kind Humans galore, we took great strides towards a world that is free of multiple schlerosis.

Mission Improvible: Nonstop Improv for RAINN

Using the power of comedy, our group Third Kind Improv joined together to raise money for the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. Thanks to the support of our artists and our community, we raised $360 for this organization. Overall we reached Tier 6 of our twelve tier goal, meaning that we performed our promised 6 hours of nonstop improv, all in support of sexual assault survivors and world without sexual violence.

Trunk-or-Treat at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church

We joined our friends at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church to create a fun and exciting Halloween celebration for neighborhood kids and their families.

The event also featured a silent auction fundraiser, food, and other artistic demonstrations. 

7/20 Memorial Run 2016

Bagels Anyone?

One chilly morning we headed to the light rail to provide breakfasty goodness to the early commuters. Offering free food and pre-dawn cheer, we worked to brighten our neighbors' days with a little AM kindness.
