It all starts with what we call a Clown Smackdown—a gathering of folks who are looking for big beautiful stupid ways to share their talents with the at risk youth of Madagascar. We meet in roving locations and build shows, create exercises and explore stories with the goal of sharing them with a group of kids on the other side of the world, without a shared language. These jams are now held once monthly and are the heart of our creative warehouse. If you wanna come jam, email us.
Another way to help us is simply spreading word about what we do. The community that has sprung up around this idea is truly staggering. You give us courage, drive and accountability. Your support is the wind in our sails, the caffeine in our coffee, the boot in our butts. If you want to see this thing grow, help us recruit for the Zara Aina army. Follow us on facebook, on instagram, and twitter, or get jiggy with this link or this link and make us go viral.
And of course you can give to our cause. This whole project is based on the Gift Economy. The volunteers gift their time to Zara Aina. We in turn gift this empowering creative experience to the kids, and together we gift a story of empowerment to the communities we visit. That all starts with and is dependent upon your gift of the money we require to keep this train rolling. So break out your checkbook, money clip, credit card or what ever holds your dough, and donate now.
