The circus is in town in Panajachel!

A flashy (for here!) circus has come to town from Mexico and it is a really big deal here!
I have to say that I hate animals in circus's but we went and looked at the tigers, horses and goats....yes.. goats, that they have and they are all in very good condition. 
I still would prefer not to support animals in circus but as anyone who has visited Panajachel knows that there is not a lot here for children and having the circus come to town is huge!
All the children are excited and we would love to be able to take all the pre-school children to the circus....they are giving us a special deal of $1.50 per ticket  which will also cover the teachers entrance as well. 
Tom Heaton from Mission Guatemala who we are partnering with for the San Andres pre-school is going to cover the 35 children from San Andres. 

I don't like to take one pre-school and not the others but we need help to pay for the tickets.

There are 44 children in the pre-school in Panajachel.  $66 US for the whole school to go to the circus.

There are 65 children in the pre-school and after school program in San Antonio .$97.50 for the whole school to go to the circus.

There are 35 children in San Jorge pre-school. $52.50 for the whole school.

There are 65 children in the Tierra Linda pre-school. $97.50 for the whole school to go to the circus.

Would anyone be interested in helping for the kids to have a fun excursion ?
The circus is only here, they say for two more days so we would have to be able to go tomorrow.
I know this is not as important as food or so many other needs we have and please forgive me for asking for help with this but I see how excited the children are and most families will not be able to take their children to the circus.
