I volunteer with The Humanitarian Clowns. The organisation came to us when Tyler was fighting for life in hospital. They did what they call “A Random act of Clowness” for our family. Bringing Clown noses and vouchers to help us out during this difficult time. The Humanitarian Clowns renamed the act to “Tyler Shaw Random Act of Clowness” in honour of Tyler after she died. The Humanitarian Clowns also have an Indian Chapter. Clowns who volunteer from all over the world visit India for 3 weeks a year. Hudson and I were invited to go on this trip in 2015.
We were nervous but excited as we headed off to India dressed as Clowns for 3 weeks. This changed our lives. It was the most amazing experience. We visited hospitals, orphanages, schools, leprosy homes and lots more amazing places. We brought so much love, laughter and happiness to the less fortunate of India. Hudson and I have gone every year since. We do it in honour of Tyler. Part of the trip we head up to the Jewadhi Hills which is very hard to get to if there has been a lot of rain. We visit a village up there where The Humanitarian Clowns in conjunction with Seb’s Project built a school. Every trip Hudson and I fundraise for our trip to be able to help out less fortunate people we feel Tyler would want to help. Our second trip we funded the first little shop ever opened in The Jewahdi Hills. It’s called Tyler’s Store. It’s at the school. It teaches the women of the village how to run a business. It has been so successful the shop has now opened other stores at womens homes for them to run as their own businesses.
The main store has now been closed as we are creating a new project. Turning it into a Tailor’s school. To teach people how to sew and run a business as a Tailor. We are so very proud of everything that has developed. We look forward to heading back again this year. Please check out The Humanitarian Clowns link.
