Starfish Project Endorsement



Project Director: Becca Chapman and Alex Smith


Mission: To develop personal connections and promote healing through humor and play.


Vision: To help institutions treat the whole patient. To create a place of healing, not sickness. Helping establishments foster healing on every level.

Create Joy. Play. Heal. Healing through laughter, connection, and joy. Our clowns will venture into institutions (hospitals, nursing homes, orphanages, correctional facilities, clinics, etc.). When invited into hospital rooms, hallways, and waiting areas, we uplift the hearts of patients, parents, and staff through humor and personal connection. Our clowns will also tailor experiences in collaboration with caregivers and families to best serve individual patient and familial needs during room-to-room visits. Laughter is the best, good, medicine. Our goal is to make “play” a part of the journey of healing.
