The Medeiros Troupe Trust has been established for the benefit of the girl's medical and related needs. Funds sent! Thanks everyone! See More

THE STORY:

Any one of these girls could have probably beat you at arm wrestling. These are circus girls. They've had an unfortunate accident and I started this to help raise funds for all the girls that fell. I have many circus friends that wanted to help and didn't know where to turn. It was the simplest way to do so. As a former circus aerialist and circus coach I feel a deep affinity and responsibility for younger aerialists. I hope this helps them on the road to recovery!  Let them know you're rooting for them by contributing whatever you can and the money will be forwarded to them as a group to help them care for each other. Feel free to pass this along and help these circus girls #Stay Strong!

Update 8/3/2014 -The Medeiros Troupe Trust has been established for the benefit of the girl's medical and related needs. Funds collected here will be deposited there. Contributions and funds donated are not tax deductible for federal or state income tax purposes. The girls continue to heal.
