A day of fun and charity at BeeBop Circus' 2nd anniversary Garden Party


BeeBop Circus celebrated its second anniversary

Last Sunday, 28 February 2016, BeeBop Circus celebrated its second anniversary by hosting a fundraising Garden Party for the children in Chow Kit under the care of Yayasan Salam.

The Garden Party was styled like the whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland. Children and adults were entertained by an extensive line-up of activities: Costume Runway sessions, story-telling with puppets, magic show, cupcake decorating and a range of arts and crafts to keep the little ones entertained. The crowd's favorite was the BeeBop Circus' award-winning play-gym sessions - fun gymnastic skills, chasing bubbles and playing parachute games!

My 2.5-year old little kiddo enjoyed himself so much that he kept on running and exploring every crook and cranny of the play-gym area. You should check out BeeBop Circus if you have young kids under seven years old. They will have so much to do and learn through play.

How apt is their motto: Bee-cause children learn best through play!

Fundraising Garden Party for a noble cause

There was no admission fee to the Garden Party, but the donate-as-you-wish campaign managed to raise RM2,773 in just five hours! The funds raised will be utilized to cover the cost of transport, food, clown, and presents for a memorable excursion for the children from Chow Kit.

These children are from Taska & Pusat Jagaan Baitul Amal, established by Yayasan Salam Malaysia in 2010 in the heart of Chow Kit, to support the development of comprehensive protection for children living in the vicinity. It offers free daycare services to the urban poor, with 62 children currently enrolled in their center, between 2 months to 6 years of age.

"When we learned that the children's only excursion in 2015 was taking a free bus to a public park because of financial constraints, we knew we had to do something to make an excursion to BeeBop Circus possible," says Shireen Yeoh, Business Development Manager of BeeBop Circus.

"Young children learn best through play. Our program provides a framework which leverages on this, allowing children to easily grasp scientific and mathematical concepts through guided play activities. The opportunity to benefit from this kind of experience should not be a novelty that is available only to the privileged," she added emphatically.

BeeBop Circus has been regularly volunteering in Chow Kit for the past year, and will be sponsoring the activities and co-organizing the excursion together with Yayasan Salam Malaysia.

Chief Operating Officer of Yayasan Salam Malaysia

"We do not even have sufficient funds to meet the basic overhead costs of maintaining the center, such as rental and utilities," says Encik Md Ghani Ibrahim, Chief Operating Officer of Yayasan Salam Malaysia.

Yayasan Salam Malaysia was founded in 1997 as an independent, non-government and non-profit organization, to promote a spirit of volunteer service among Malaysians. Its activities are funded by contributions from individuals and corporate benefactors. It has many projects under its umbrella, ranging from vocational training and education to relief works locally and abroad.

Hopefully, the success of the fundraising Garden Party at BeeBop Circus will help create more awareness about the plight of the children in Chow Kit. Malaysians are generous people, and sometimes, all they need is a trustworthy cause they can easily contribute to.
