How can you help?

Your donations help buy supplies, and support the tour, and help clown visits by paying in advance for places like domestic violence shelters, and senior centers, they receive FREE full clown visits.

What are we wishing for?

Joy First is considering purchasing and creating a “Joybulance” – a jubilant vehicle change that would allow for more pop-up opportunities – and a quirky attention getter prepared for quick pop-up experiences.

Your donation could help us create this! A second hand utility vehicle designed to bring Jubilance, Joy, and Giggles to those who even see it from afar! It’s more than an artcar, it’s a Joy lifestyle! And with a vehicle shift we can support more people on the road. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for this “new to us” vehicle. – Can you help? When you donate, you can earmark on Paypal for The Tour of Joy and your donation will be added for this purpose.

Your donations already pay for supplies, and clown visits. CLICK THE LINKS BELOW TO SUPPORT THE TOUR OF JOY!
