The economic troubles of the past few years have been far-reaching; even the largest companies, thought to be well-postioned and immune from harm, have found themselves gravely affected. Unfortunately, Cirque du Soleil is no exception.
Here in Las Vegas, at Mystere by Cirque du Soleil, 7 employees recently found themselves unexpectedly without a job. Their positions were eliminated due to budget cuts, and the suddenness of this event has taken us all by surprise.
Our show is like a family to us, and like family, we wish to come together in hopes of offering a helping hand to the 7 people that are losing those positions. And so we have created this opportunity for you, our friends, colleagues, family members, well-wishers and fans, to donate to a fund, ALL proceeds of which will be given directly to those employees.
We understand that these are difficult times for all of us, and perhaps you, too, have been touched by the economic difficulties of the recent past (or the present!) But if you can, please consider a donation of any amount to help us help our colleagues as they fact this challenging transition. By coming together in this way, we can offer them some direct help as they start the next journey of their lives.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!
With love & respect,
The Mystere Community Development Team
And as a token of our deep appreciation, we are also offering a chance to win some special prizes -- everyone who donates is automatically entered into the raffle! We will contact the winners at the end of the campaign.
