Thanks to an incredible donation from the Flea Theater in New York City, Modern Vaudeville Press has found itself in a unique position — we have supplies to make some 3,500 juggling balls using mostly upcycled materials.
With this shell donation, we can make hundreds of juggling kits to give away at extremely low cost / free to community programs all along the East Coast.
How can you get involved? MVP is a scrappy group of artists. Artists who, thanks to the pandemic, are out of work with nothing but time! However, the fixed costs (filling for balls, tape, alcohol wipes, instruction print-outs, etc.) add up quickly when we’re talking this scale.
- A $5 donation covers the costs of making, packing, and delivering a set of juggling balls in the Philadelphia metro area.
- A $20 donation pays for 12 pounds of iodized salt.
- A $50 donation pays for alcohol swabs in over 100 juggling kits, for peace of mind in the pandemic.
100% of the money donated goes directly to providing juggling materials to community programs. MVP is a mission-driven company.
