There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor ~ (Dickens) and we are certainly in festive spirits at Room circus. The holidays are fast approaching, with the season of giving in mind, we are raising funds to send our Clowns to the North American Federation of Healthcare Clowning Organizations (NAFHCO) Annual Meeting of the Noses Conference in Dallas, TX.
NAFHCO’s Mission is to advocate the acceptance of professional healthcare clowns as an integrated partner in the circle of care by creating a nationally accepted standard for the work that can be monitored and supported by the North American Federation of Healthcare Clowning Organizations.
NAFHCO’s vision advances the field of healthcare clowning by establishing and maintaining best practices, enhancing the professional growth and development of members, and advancing the credibility of the healthcare clown profession by setting a national standard, fostering research and promoting the efficacy of humor in healing.
Benefits for Room Circus by attending the Annual Meeting of the Noses Conference:
- Professional Development - Attending several workshops by experts in the field.
- Networking - Sharing and receiving information on fundraising, best practices, expansion, interfacing with new venues.
- Skills Exchange - Sharing and receiving new skills, bits, and routines designed for healthcare settings.
Please give a holiday gift to help support medical clowning at Seattle Children’s Hospital and help send our clown doctors to these valuable continuing education workshops. Let’s bring these valuable skills back to Seattle.
