"The Big Ears for Kids"
As you know, northeastern Japan has been devastated with a massive earthquake and tsunami. This has caused a tragic loss of lives, radiation danger and many other life altering effects... not only to immediate survivors of the disaster area, but to all of Japan. Additionally, our country's commerce has been greatly affected by this terrible tragedy; nearly all of Open Sesame clown theatre events and festivals for 2011 have been canceled, even within safe areas in Japan.
Many of our American Clown friends have expressed the desire to help Open Sesame continue creating laughter during this difficult time. Such generosity is deeply inspiring and so, Gigi and I wish to put our talents to work and perform for children in the earthquake torn areas.
In the spirit of turning lemons to lemonade, Gigi and I have decided to embrace our opened tour schedule and create the relief project, Big Ears for Kids. Our desire is to garner funds to finance Open Sesame performances throughout the northeastern area of Japan and put on shows for children who are in desperate need of diversion from the upheaval around them.
We are asking for your support of the Big Ears for Kids project. In sincere gratitude, we have provided a variety of donor premiums for different project funding levels. We will also have a Big Ears for Kids blog, that will document our project's special journey through posts, photos and video.
Please prayerfully consider helping us to wipe away the tears, by sharing laughter and peace to the thousands of children and their families in northeastern Japan.
- The logistics for producing an Open Sesame tour in northeastern Japan is a large task in a normal situation. To produce a tour in the current situation is very challenging. We are working with normal tour production budget details: assembling production staff, marketing/public relations, technical (staging,sound & lightings) lodging and meals. The biggest challenge for a touring a show in northeastern Japan are the lack of basic life necessities: transportation, electricity, food and water. We will work to secure as much of The Big Ears For Kids tour needs as possible, through donations of services from the Japan entertainment industry. Based on our preliminary budget projections, to produce The Big Ears For Kids tour we will need to raise $10,000 amount USD.
