Howdy, cousins. This is Noah Mickens, aka William Batty, ringmaster and director of Wanderlust Circus. We're participating in a toy drive this holiday season, and we would love for you to join in too. Please bring your donations to any of our holiday shows this month - WHITE ALBUM CHRISTMAS December 5-8 and A CIRCUS CAROL 12/13 in Eugene and 12/20-22 in Portland. Just toss 'em in the box by the merch table and we'll make sure they get to those kids. Legacy Emanuel's psychiatric ward is an all right place, but it's still definitely part of the county system. Some teens get sent to private psych units that cost their parents lots of money, but these are not those kids. Many of them have no homes to go to, and none of them get to go home for Christmas. The staff there tells me that many of them go with absolutely no presents at all at Christmas time. You could be jaded and say you don't believe in Christmas, but for kids the holiday is extremely meaningful, and it saddens me to think of these already-disadvantaged kids and teens being alone and going without. They say it's a lot of teenagers and little girls right now, mostly white plus some Latin and black kids. Low low income. A lot of them are in permanent foster care, wards of the state, abandoned children, homeless children, victims of sex trafficking and the failing US safety net. On top of that, they are emotionally or mentally troubled to such an extent that they've been removed from the general population and sent here. At the same time, and I hope you'll believe me about this, they are some of the most vibrant and undefeated non-conformists you'll ever meet. I personally spent a good deal of time in children's psychiatric hospitals, and if you ask around your artsy freaky friends I bet you'll hear the same from a lot of them. It's hard to be different, especially in unstable or hostile circumstances, and psychological dysfunction can arise from the adaptations you make to such circumstances. So we're running a little toy drive for the kids of Legacy Emanuel. We encourage you to buy from small local businesses, especially those that make their own product. There are a few basic categories that we're focusing on: 1. PRACTICAL ITEMS: Our friends at Legacy say the kids need quality toiletries, because they have a limited supply of low-quality soaps and shampoos and such. I'm sure this matters more to the girls than the boys - nice girly shampoo, soap, conditioner, lotion, razors, etc. would surely be appreciated. Nice girly underwear, bras, and socks are great too. 2. BOOKS: There's a decent library of books at Legacy, but these are gifts for the kids themselves. We have a list of suggested books that we can share with you if you like. Young Adult, Early Readers, Spanish Language, Science Fiction, Fantasy, History, Biography, Comic Books/Graphic Novels, or that special something for the smart kid who loves to read. - these seem like wise choices to us. 3. DOLLS/STUFFED ANIMALS: There are an unusual number of little girls at Legacy right now, and they would surely love to get some dolls and stuffed animals. The little boys too of course, and maybe even the teens. 4. COOL CLOTHES: These kids like hip hop, mainstream music, metal, punk. They can't wear anything too crazy in there, but if you can get some good-looking clothes in their hands I know they'll appreciate it. Boys and girls both. 5. ART SUPPLIES: My friend at Legacy says, "There are never, ever enough art supplies." Drawing pads, pencils, paints, felt-tip pens, canvases, sculpting clay - anything that relatively low-skill people with limited access to everything can still enjoy. 6. SOMETHING ELSE? If you have something wonderful in mind that you think these kids would like, go ahead and donate it. I'm sure they'll love it. Thanks for helping us make the Holidays a little happier for some of our city's most vulnerable human beings. This is what it's all about, friends. - N. http://www.facebook.com/events/509833422457233/
