Spark! Circus was on Samui in January 2014

It was play time, show time, day time, night time..! And it was really fun- and a great fund-raising day on the 19th for Samui at Bandara Resort and Spa, Samui - thanks to you and the Samui community!!!parachute samuiParachute games - Thanks to ISS for the loan of the parachutes and hoops!

We raised over B200,000 in funds for this group of volunteers, with very few expenses thanks to our amazing hosts, and we had a great turnout at this generously sponsored community event.

Money came from cash donations from the community, from an entrance fee for those who stayed for dinner and a show, from a raffle and from the silent auction where people bid on donated vouchers.

Your contribution is much appreciated!

By now the volunteers are up in Mae Sot already hard at work spending our money on workshop equipment, art supplies and donation kits for each school they visit. This is a picture from the Mae Sot dump community where the kids look forward so much to Spark's visit every year!
