Have you laughed today?


ClownZero is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and communities worldwide through humanitarian clowning and therapeutic performing arts. They have been working with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital for the past year and have been making powerful changes in the lives of the patients they serve.

ClownZero is a strong believer in the health benefits of laughter. They believe that it can facilitate empathetic and imaginative play to fight against stress, reduce pain by releasing endorphins, promote a positive outlook, help patients and families cope with difficult situations, and strengthen the bonds between family members. Laughter can also boost the cardiovascular and respiratory systems by improving muscle capacity and deep breathing.

So please remember to make time in your day to laugh! It not only feels great, but it’s good for you too!
