Clowns at rehearsal space in Beirut
Due to the current political and econonic situation currently unfolding in Lebanon, we've been forced to postpone many of our usual and upcoming activities. That doesn't mean we've been idle, though. Our clowns have been an active part of the demonstrations happening in the streets, participating in marches and performing for the protesters. In order to help people deal with the stress of the current situation, we are planning a series of free clown workshops to help people maintain their positivity and be able to channel their frustrations and anxieties through a positive medium.
Thanks to your generous donations, we've also been able to maintain a regular place to practice and devise the touring shows that we will be taking to different regions in the coming months. We have also been able to cover over 2 weeks worth of space rental for rehearsals, as well as providing props and costumes for our clowns. We have also increased our project goal for the holiday season by 2,000$ in time for GlobalGiving's Year-End campaign. We hope to keep being able to do what we do throughout these turbulent times, thanks to you!
Keep an eye out for our next report, as well as through our social media channels, to learn more about what we're doing as we adjust to the current events and find ways to help through spreading love and laughter.
