With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

But if your teen is ready to take the plunge the first thing they need to figure out is how to build a resume that stands out even if they don’t have any work experience.

But where to start? How do can you create a snapshot of your ambitions, show your strengths and interests and captive an employers attention?

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® and Chick-fil-A are teaming up with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta to challenge Children Of All Ages to participate in Pie for Patients. People can make a pie using shaving or whipped cream, take a video, and then post the video on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube using #GetPiedforCHOA and #ringlingbros. After getting involved in the fun of getting pied and raising awareness for Children’s, participants are asked to donate to make a difference in their local community.


The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus birthday tradition of being pied has been transformed in Atlanta into an opportunity to pie yourself, friends, family, and neighbors for a great cause,” said Brad Timberlake, Regional Vice President for Feld Entertainment’s Southeast Region. “’Pie for Patients’ is a fun, unique way to raise awareness for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, which has done amazing work in our community for more than 100 years.”

Donate to Save Lives and then Pie yourself to challenge friends, family, and neighbors and help raise money for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Chick-fil-A Atlanta will support “Pie for Patients” by donating $5,000 to Children’s in addition to having four “Chick-fil-A Spirit Events” where 10% of proceeds from a selected date/time period will go back to the hospital.  Ringling Bros. clowns will also be at these four spirit events and over 45 more locations to entertain customers in January and February.  Customers will have the opportunity to put on a “Pie for Patients” poncho and get pied on the spot at all Chick-fil-A Atlanta locations that are hosting a Family Event during the Ringling Bros. visits including the four spirit event locations below:

  • January 16 – 475 Howard Simmons Road, Ellijay, 30540 (9-11am)
  • January 19 – 3100 South Cobb Drive, Smyrna, 30080 (9-11am)

  • February 5 – 2105 Roswell Road, N.W., Marietta, 30062 (6-8pm)

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will also donate $20,000 to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to support local pediatric patients and raise awareness of the national cancer research being conducted by Dr. Joshua Schiffman from Salt Lake City’s Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital, who is studying DNA from Ringling Bros. elephants and comparing it to DNA from his patients with cancer. Scientists are studying why there is such a low incidence of cancer in elephants, what makes this cancer resistance possible in elephants and not in humans, and how this may correlate to new treatments for pediatric cancers.

Additional information on Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation, the partnership and information on how families can donate to the research can be found online at and
