We, the Clowns for Haiti members are heartbroken over the loss of our dear friend and number one clown trumpeter, Brian Beardsley. We will forever think of you playing your favourite tune, as you join the Saints and go Marching In.God Bless dear friend and Rest in Peace.May the Lord support us all the day long,till the shades lengthen and the evening comes,and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over,and our work is done.Then in his mercy may he give us a safe lodging,and holy rest, and peace at the last.

Hello. We’re Clowns for Haiti, An Irish Charity Helping Haitians Smile Again. Thank You For Stopping By. Don’t Be Shy. Tell Us Your Ideas. Help Us Raise Funds. Get Involved.

Haiti and Ireland; two islands with no land between them. Haiti nine million people, and Ireland five million people. There were 4,000 schools in Haiti, 3,640 of which were destroyed. The two Petes went as Clowns to Haiti after the earthquake to help. The Irish clowns made Haitians smile again.

Clowns for Haiti consists of seven great volunteers who love Haiti and have remained with the project since the very start. They are Lady Clowns Denise and Patricia, and Clowns Brian, Charles John, Don, and the two Pete’s. Many other friends and organisations have helped and supported us along the way.

Once rebuilt, a Haitian school will be twinned with an Irish school. Funds go to resourcing schools, linking children via performing arts.

Students and teachers will learn about and visit each other’s country. This long term project starts with Irish and Haitian students during their primary school years.

The Clowns are very grateful to each of our volunteers and their contribution over the years. By creating and running ‘FUN’raising Clown events in Ireland, we have helped build a beautiful primary school outside Port Au Prince. It is run by our brilliant Haitian friend Chery. Clown President for Life Pete and Charles John named the school ‘St Patricks on The Hill’. It has a green rooftop! It is a good news story! More great initiatives are on the way! Keep following us.
