Laughter Without Borders

Jeff’s latest project is called “Laughter Without Borders.” Jeff is on a mission to bring as much joy and happiness to as many disadvantaged and at-risk children as he possibly can… all over the world. 

Jeff wants to show the world (literally) how laughter connects us all, despite language and socio-economic barriers. Laughter brings us together: “People are people,” and “funny is funny.” 

Jeff will be bringing a different performer friend on each adventure to share/discuss the experience. The awesome Rob Ferre will be joining Jeff for this first trip later this month… in partnership with “Together We Can Change the World” (TWCCTW) to benefit the “Good Shepherd Sisters of Thailand!” (GSST)

Learn more about both TWCCTW and GSST below.

“Laughter without Borders” kicks off May 29th in Bangkok 🙂

"Together We Can Change the World"

Last summer Jeff spent 16 days traveling across Southeast Asia with “Together We Can Change the World” (TWCCTW), splitting his time between special corporate events and unforgettable local villages.

“Together We Can Change the World,” more commonly referred to as TWCCTW, is a one-of-a-kind organization with the mission to empower and educate women and children in Southeast Asia. TWCCTW raises money to support non-governmental groups, like orphanages and schools, across Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The organization aims to establish sustainability within Southeast Asia, generate awareness for disadvantaged children and women, and of course, raise money for its multiple charitable causes. They strive to make the world a better place for those most vulnerable, particularly those suffering the effects of war, unrest, human trafficking, and extreme poverty. 

TWCCTW was formed in 2008 by Scott Friedman, CSP and past president of the National Speakers Association (NSA), alongside Jana Stanfield, CSP and a group of dedicated professionals who share the mission of empowering and educating less fortunate children and women. Together, Scott and Jana arrange TWCCTW tours throughout Southeast Asia to benefit the organization.

Twice a year, the pair coordinate a group of 10 to 15 keynote speakers who each raise $1,500, as well as donate their time and talent, to present to and visit various TWCCTW causes in the region. All speakers pay for their own airfare and accommodations, deliver keynotes to raise additional funds, and participate in charitable events.

Good Shepherd Sisters Thailand

“Together We Can Change the World” has been proudly involved for close to a decade working with and watching the Sisters work tirelessly for humankind.
The Good Shepherd Sisters of Thailand do so much good:
  • Nurse trafficking victims back to health through love, compassion, and counseling.
  • Give a safe and healthy home, and providing skills to abused single mothers to help raise their children.
  • Provide classrooms to help educate refugees and low-income kids.

Their work is truly inspiring.

In Jeff's Own Words...

“After being on the last TWCCTW tour, I was so moved by the experience and the work of GSST that I decided to launch my “Laughter Without Borders” project by performing at 5 Good Shepherd Sisters of Thailand sites (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pattaya, and Phuket) for the kids and the surrounding communities. I want to shine a light on the incredible work these women are doing.”
