Hello,

I'm running away with the circus again! Spark Circus o be exact! :D

Many of you are familiar with "Flow arts" but how many of you are familiar with the term "Social circus?
 
It's defined as so:
Social Circus refers to the growing movement toward the use of circus arts as mediums for social justice and social good. It uses alternative pedagogical tools to work with youth who are marginalized or at social or personal risk.
 
That is Spark Circus's mission! We use circus as a tool to relate, connect, build confidence, social skills, and self esteem in the communities we visit.
More info about Spark at: www.sparkcircus.org

 

Spark Circus's vision is to bring the joy and healing of PLAY and creative self discovery to disadvantaged groups of children and youth through creative skills such as circus and dance. Workshops will be primarily for disadvantaged and in crisis youth of many kinds– refugees, migrants, impoverished, disabled or ill. However, we will strive to include all members of the local communities who wish to participate. 


This year I am signed up to return for another tour and I/We need your help!

I had a difficult year and got a late start on preparing for this years trip due to many personal circumstances. Otherwise, I wouldn't be asking for the financial help of my friends.

My personal goal it to raise at least $2,000 to cover travel costs, housing, food, insurance, and expenses I'll encounter along the way. Any extra proceeds after that mark will be donated to Spark Circus for the tour.

If I don't raise enough to make it this year all the raised funds will go into a bank account until Spark Circus's 2018 tour.

New Torches that won't make the TSA freak out!
  • 0 granted
Since my fire eating torches are full of soot and fuel residue, Traveling with them over seas could be a bit of a problem. However fresh wicks won't set off any alarms, dogs, or TSA alerts. These torches will be donated to Spark Circus at the end of the tour for the next fire eater to use and master.

Chris Gets a stylish new Mohawk?
  • 0 claimed
Since spark is a volunteer and donation based organization I thought of a fun little idea to help raise some money for Spark!

So here it is, I have a lot of hair, and if I raise enough in donations to reach 5,000 dollars I'll give myself a mohawk for the tour and dye my remaining hair green!

You have the power to make this happen!
