My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts Inc, New York, NY, USA
For almost 5 years I have had the tremendous opportunity to be a part of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Over the last 4 or 5 years, I have been privileged to be on the road with the Bindlestiffs - seeing places I've never been, meeting people that I would otherwise never know. Working with the Bindlestiffs have opened my world in ways I couldn't describe. Before the Cirkus, I was far less outgoing and my shyness kept me from doing what I love. Not only do I now have the confidence, but the Bindlestiffs also made me aware of my importance - not just in the Cirkus - but in my home, my community, and among my family and friends. If there is one thing that I can take away from this experience - it is the ability to feel proud of my work and accomplishments. The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus is all about helping people grow, achieve their goals, and surpassing expectations. There is no doubt in my mind when I say the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus has changed my life - they have allowed me to realize my capabilities in circus and in everyday life. They have, and continue to, fulfill my knowledge of circus. It is because of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus that I am doing what I do - and they are the reason I love it so much. The term "Family" they use may seem metaphorical to most - but for me, it has become the truth. For the past 4 years, I have met many people who have developed into a loving, supportive, and caring family that want only the best for each other. I have been surrounded by loving and thoughtful individuals who have offered me more than I could ever repay. I can't imagine my life now without the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.
