How You Can Help
Room Circus is a non-profit organization that operates off of the generosity of our donors and volunteers. We are not looking for volunteer clowns, because we use trained, professional clowns who have the skill and sensitivity to bring the most therapeutic benefit to patients. However, we are looking for compassionate, energetic people who want to contribute some of their time and energy to a good cause.
Room Circus endeavors to expand its outreach to more hospitals and more days a week in Seattle Children’s Hospital. There are many different ways that you can help us attain this goal, such as by donating, being on a committee, or helping with one or more of the tasks listed below.
