In an attempt to address the subject of
bullying in a unique and memorable way,
we founded FACEPAINT, which stands for
Fantasy and Circus Entertainers Partnering
Through provision of circus entertainment
for New England-based Boys and Girls Clubs,
our goal over the past several years has been
to address the topic of bullying, in particular
bystander involvement, to a large number of
children. As part of the show, we have
distributed free children's books, one of which
("Fruit of the Vine") is a children's fantasy story
based on bullying that promotes the idea
of bystander intervention.
Today, we are continuing to perform as
FACEPAINT at nursing homes and hospitals.
