Clown serious about dog welfare


HE LOVES to make children happy and this was one of the factors that propelled 26-year-old Adran Revinderen to become a clown.
Professionally known as Jelly the Clown, Adran, who is from Petaling Jaya, has been making children laugh with his antics for some time now.
“I love to see the joy on their faces whenever I entertain them dressed as a clown,” Adran, who now has 10 clowns working with him, said.
He added that the clowns were also trained in the art of balloon twisting which further excites the children.
According to Adran, besides offering clowns to entertain at parties and other events, his company Jelly & Frenz Entertainment (http://http://www.jellynfrenz.com/) also offers stilt walkers, jugglers, mimes and mascots.
Adran, who is a member of the Clowns Organisation America International (COAI) has also participated in many clown seminars and conventions worldwide.
Adran’s other passion is animal welfare.
“I love all kinds of animals but have a special interest in dogs,” he said.
Adran has embarked on a partnership of sorts with canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) to find homes for stray dogs and puppies.
“We have committed to entertain- ing children who come for the adoption drives organised by the MDDB,” Adran said.
Meanwhile, Firoza Buranudden, who is the director of Community Development and Integration Initiative (CDII), the non-governmental organisation that spearheaded the MDDB project, said she was glad that Jelly the Clown had come forward to help.
“We cannot thank him enough. Please come to our adoption drive at the Summit Subang Jaya on Sept 13 to watch the antics of the clowns from Jelly’s troop who will also give away balloons,” she said.
Firoza added that the adoption drive, held between 11am and 7pm, would be at the mall’s entrance near Starbucks.
“We have about 20 puppies for adoption,” Firoza said.
Adran said the joint venture was part of his company’s efforts to play its part to help the strays.
“Besides, I personally feel strongly that every stray should be given a second chance in life,” Adran said.
