On Saturday April 18 at Time Grand Plaza Hotel, we had the pleasure of hosting our 2nd Annual Clowns Who Care Xtravaganza Party and performance celebrating the wonderful special needs community. Children of all ages, and their families, from around the U.A.E. attended. It was nice for them to be able to come together from different areas and schools to a beautiful venue to have fun, dance, take part in activities, each a delicious lunch and be entertained for the afternoon.
Many thanks to all the volunteers, performers and artists, activity leaders, Time Hotels, Barakat – Fresh & Easy, Action Care and everyone who helped bring more joy to the community!
We all have certain days of the year that remind us of sad things that happened in our lives. Whether it be painful memories of a tragic incident or happy memories spent with a loved one who has passed away. We had wanted to visit Mawaheb studio the first week that they were back to school and we always go on a Tuesday. Upon looking at the calendar we realized that Tuesday was 9/11. 9/11 is indeed a day of remembrance and for some of us a very sad and reflective day. There’s an old saying “the best way to cheer oneself is to cheer another” and that is just what we did. As always, it proved to be a wonderful day of laughter and gratitude. So on those sad days, we encourage you to take a moment to reflect then take the next moment to help someone else. Take your pain and transform it into something joyous….. the rewards are greater than you can ever imagine.
