Dear Friend,

In March we participated in a Bonus Day and raised the great amount – more than $2,500 in a day! Once we received the funds, we used them to buy necessary acrobatic equipment for group “Circus behind the fence” training. It is just two mats and a mini-tramp, but opportunity to jump in and train new tricks has returned interest of circus trainings. As a result guys’ motivation has increased and now they are preparing a new performance for festival "Flying children" which will be held in September.

Moreover the amount collected has allowed to organize a summer camp for the new group. Just recently the children have finished their studies at school and very soon they will go to rest and train in the Upsala-Circus summer camp, where they will spend the whole summer. Thanks to your support the children of the new group will receive not only a full summer vacation out of town, but during the camp will learn basic living and social skills and also prepare a new circus show for the September festival.

Thank you for the new opportunities that we can give children with your help!!!

The next BONUS DAY – 13th OF JUNE, we look forward to your support!

We are looking forward to see you on the Upsala-Circus premiere play "Dogs" on June 21, as well as at Upsala-Circus festival "Flying Children" in September!
