Happy Holiday Message 2022


 

December 15, 2022

Dear Friends,

With the Holiday Season approaching, we would like to thank you for your support and give you an update on our activities.

With the nation recovering from COVID-19, we have resumed clowning at events supporting children and families. It is great to get back to bringing smiles to young faces.


Even with the pandemic, we hit some major milestones this year:

  • In April, we reached our 20th Anniversary as an all-volunteer charitable nonprofit.
  • To date, since our inception in 2002, we have given away $519,070 to over 65 nonprofits. We have continued to place emphasis on providing much needed funds to food banks and nonprofits providing emergency feeding.
  • In 2022, so far we have been able to donate $27,100 to 11 nonprofits, including for urgently needed food to refugees of the Ukranian war.

Our ability to donate to worthy organizations is based on your support. We greatly appreciate you. Please note that 93% of your contributions go directly to program services – that is for our grants to other nonprofits. This is significantly higher than the minimum 65% recommended by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.

For all of us on the Caring Clowns International Board of Directors and our members, THANK YOU!

Jed “Duffy” Selter, President

Steve “Stevie” Letter, Vice President

Sheila “Sparkes” Walters, Secretary

Gaston “Beauzeaux” Peter-Contesse, Treasurer
