Make a difference in the lives of children and youth at risk in Cape Town,
South Africa. Buy ZIP ZAP tickets for the benefit performance on Thursday,
February 7, 2008, at the Royal Albert Hall. Tickets are �70 each ($140).
Cirque du Soleil will donate the entire proceeds of the allocated tickets
to Zip Zap School of Circus Arts in South Africa.
Zip Zap is a fantastic initiative by two passionate and dedicated artists,
Brent van Rensburg and his French wife, Laurence Esteve. They have created
a fun and safe space for any kid from Cape Town to play and learn life
through the circus arts.
Zip Zap is doing an amazing job helping to relieve poverty and
unemployment, and giving kids opportunities and hope. From drug addict to
professional rigger, from abused child to international performer, this is
what is possible for Zip Zap students.
The funds raised from this event help support the running of the training
of social circus instructors and the running of the school, which includes
the outreach project for children born HIV+, the Young Adult Programme, and
the general welfare of its youth.
Please support this initiative, buy tickets for your company, your friends
and relatives, and forward this email on to as many people in and around
London as possible.
To book, contact RAH box office: +44 (0) 20 7838 3122. When purchasing your
ticket, make sure you specify that it is for the benefit of ZIP ZAP and the
name ZIP ZAP is reflected on the ticket.
