The Tears of a Clown

1 Tears of a Clown_004

Now there’s some sad things known to man
But ain’t too much sadder than
the tears of a clown
When there’s no one around, oh yeah

Smokey Robinson – “The Tears Of A Clown”

Smokey sang about the loss of a love in this song, but these particular lyrics – and the clown’s tears – can apply equally to animals that are lost, abandoned or abused. In the United States, the ASPCA is the group that is tasked with the humane treatment and prevention of cruelty of animals. To benefit this organisation, Seraphim has put together a massive event that will run from November 6-26. Over 100 designers will come together with circus-themed items with donations going to the ASPCA.

You can check out the Cirque de Serpahim blog or Flickr page for a sneak-preview of some of the items that will be available. SLurls to the two (yes, two!) sims will be published there when the event opens and I’ll be adding them into my update posts on and after November 6.

Start saving your pennies for this event; you don’t want to be the one to make the clown cry.

    As long as she wears knickers lol.
    Great idea that fun raising…clowns and animals here to entertain us and make us smile, but always that other side, the cruelty, the neglect. Who speaks for them. Who makes them laugh. Who will wipe away their tears.

Talk to me! (please? )
