A community project (part of Bornfire) which involves juggling and spinning workshops, fire performances and games finally kicked off on 2007 June 9. During the 10 days, Antti Suniala and I worked with more than 150 children (Tsunami orphans and less privileged) in Khao Lak - Thailand.



Schools and foundations we worked with includes:



1) Duang Prateep Foundation (Orphanage in Takuapa, Phang Nga)

2) Ban Yan Yao School (Takuapa, Phang Nga)

3) Wat Lumpinee School (Tai Muang, Phang Nga)

4) Burmese camp



It was a fulfilling trip... with many great moments, laughters and a good sense of achievements. All this would not have been possible without the blessing, support and help from kind friends...



- 4kali for the support and help in organising the above workshops and performances

- Michael; for taking us to the Burmese Camp

- Knik from Circus Outreach for donating the spinning and juggling equipments

- Serene; for the $200 donations which helps in covering some of the cost.

- Antti Suniala; for the clown noses, performances and workshops... most importantly for starting this project with me!





Hope you guys enjoy the video as much as we do!

Posted:Wow, it looks like you had an amazing time! keep it up guys, was it something you just organised yourselves?

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Posted:Some people might recognice a variation (without the song) of the infamous "Hello my name is Joe" warm up game.

This was basically organized by ourselves but with a lot of help from organizations like 4cali.org working in Khao Lak. They had the contacts to the places we went to give the workshops and performances and they drove us around and also helped in translation and the workshops.
