Clowns Without Borders is an international organization that sends shows and workshops to bring hope to people who have been effected by war, natural disasters and extreme poverty around the world. Clowns Without Borders has sent hundreds of performing groups to communities in greatest need all over the world. Their slogan: No Child Without a Smile!
I have worked with Clowns Without Borders USA since 1999 including organizing and participating in many projects in Chiapas, Guatemala, South Africa, Palestine, USA, and Haiti –all of which have been extraordinary experiences. I organize with the help of many others the yearly Portland Clowns Without Borders fundraiser shows (also since 1999) and I have served on the Board of Directors of CWB USA since it’s founding.
Here are photo-journals from some of my favorite CWB trips:
