“Instead of telling you why we are inspired by the BJF, we’re gonna show you!”

How I relate to the BJF
Tannis represents a fine example of how one’s talent can help to build a better world. In order to raise funds and become an official BJF Supporting Friend, Tannis has been organizing ‘Jaguar Jams’, a series of workshops followed by dance and music jams. With lots of vibrant energy, these events have been great fun for the participants and at the same time serve to raise awareness and funding for the mission and tasks of the BJF.
