Britney Spears is bringing the excitement of the circus everywhere she goes. The 27-year-old popstar, who is currently on her Circus world tour, is donating $100,000 to the Miami Children’s Hospital’s Big Apple Circus Clown Care program.
Spears also visited with her fans at the hospital. She made a surprise, 30-minute visit with 40 sick children at the hospital on Saturday before her show at the American Airlines Arena. According to E! News, Spears posed for photos with the kids and signed autographs.
“She took pictures with the kids and gave them autographed pictures,” says a rep for the hospital. “The kids were so excited to meet Britney, and having her here was a great distraction for them.”
The Clown Care program provides young patients with treatment (and chuckles) from clowns with medical training. They visit the young patients on a regular basis, as well as attend special events at the hospital.
Britney will perform at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa tonight, and is set to appear at the Nasseau Coliseum in Uniondale on Wednesday.
