CINDY HAS BEEN IN OUR FAMILY FOR AROUND 35 YEARS. SHE IS 45 YEARS OLD. SHE WAS BORN IN THE UNITED STATES, IN CALIFORNIA. SHE WEIGHS AROUND 8000 POUNDS. SHE LOVES APPLES AND BANANAS AND HER FAVORITE IS POPCORN. OF COURSE, BRINGING THE CIRCUS BACK SOME PEOPLE COME EVERY YEAR TO SEE THEIR FAVORITES WHAT YOU GUYS ARE ALWAYS ADDING SOMETHING NEW AS WELL. THIS YEAR WE HAVE THE ELEPHANTS, TIGERS, REGULAR THINGS THAT COME EVERY YEAR AND WE BROUGHT OUR TRANSFORMING CAR. KIDS LOVE THAT. WE ARE BRINGING BACK THE CROSSBOW ACT WHICH IS A FAN FAVORITE. THE LADY GETS THE APPLES SHOT OFF OF HER HEAD BY A BOW AND ARROW. MAYBE WE CAN TRY THAT LATER. WE HAVE PLENTY OF APPLES HERE. AND OF COURSE KIDS LOVE THE CIRCUS AND IT IS ALSO KIDS HELPING OTHER KIDS. THAT IS TRUE. THE MONEY FROM THE CIRCUS GOES DIRECTLY TO OUR BUDGET AT THE TEMPLE AT THE SHRINE CENTER. IT HELPS TO KEEP THE DOORS OPEN AND PAYS FOR THE INSURANCE AND GENERAL EXPENSES. SO THE PAPER CRUSADE THAT THEY DO AND MAY THAT MONEY GOES STRAIGHT TO THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL.
