Congratulations to this week's clown supplies giveaway winner, Ginnie, AKA Foxy Roxy! Every week, we are giving away a $25 gift certificate to our store, ClownAntics.com, and this week's lucky winner will tell us a little about what she does! We would like to thank Foxy Roxy for taking the time to tell us her story!
Thank you to all who entered, and don't forget, that every week we have a winner, so make sure to keep those entries coming! ENTER THE CONTEST NOW!
We asked our winners to tell us a little bit about themselves, and this is what Foxy Roxy had to say!
Thank you for selecting my photo as the first winner in the Clown Supplies Weekly Gift Card Giveaway! Who knew just one clown photo would win a prize from Clown Antics?
I became a caring/therapeutic clown in 2006 which was one year after retiring from a life-long career in the IT/computer field. I saw an ad in the local newspaper about becoming a clown volunteer and I was fortunate to be able to attend training classes here in Northern New Jersey. I am now part of that training team!
My winning picture is an example of the joy and excitement that clowning brings me. I’m inspired to bring more smiles and laughter to others, and I felt my picture indicated that passion. Clowns walking into a hospital room, the day room at a nursing home, or a senior center, brings instant comic relief to those folks. They are so happy to see us; we are thrilled and humbled to help them through another day!
My alley, “Call Us Clowns,Inc”, is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization of 40 clowns who perform weekly at two hospitals and one nursing home. We also perform at two other nursing homes once a month. We’ve done numerous fund raisers, including national & local charity walks. Along with that monthly schedule, our show group does performances at Senior Centers, nursing homes, and schools and we have done annual repeat performances for many of our clients. We only request donations from facilities/venues that have an entertainment budget. Check us out at www.callusclowns.org and on Facebook: Call Us Clowns.
Thank you again for this generous gift. Ginnie “Foxy Roxy” Testo
