DONATE HERE! Thousands of refugees have been forced by circumstance to leave their homes in war torn countries like Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq in search of a better life in Western Europe. Last November the Emergency Circus traveled 3,500 miles through 8 countries traveling alongside these refugees performing in stations, refugee camps, buses, trains and squares. We brought music, laughter, and empathy to countless masses in dire situations.
The project was so well received and so desperately needed that we’ve decided to return. Since April we’ve performed countless shows for thousands of refugees beginning at the Syrian border in Lebanon and Turkey and moving through Greece to the north playing music and games along the way.
In order continue we need your support. All of our costs are covered only by private donations from people like YOU. Please consider sharing this post and making a donation to the Emergency Circus right here http://www.emergencycircus.com/#donate. Every person who donates any amount can receive updates as we document the situation through the eyes of a circus in writing, video, and photography.
These are sweet, kind families who risk their lives daily to escape extremely difficult situations they’ve been dealt. Often their children, mothers, or fathers die along the way. They aren’t always treated with kindness and the stress of loosing family members, jobs, and their homes can be extremely draining to their mental state. It is so heart warming and hopeful to see what a simple smile can do for their ability to continue on with hope. History is being created now and the Emergency Circus is committed to doing what we can to steer it in a positive direction by diminishing xenophobia and showing everyone that we all laugh in the same language. Please share and donate what you can. Thank you for your support. DONATE HERE!
