Does your local playground need some improvement? Do you need a local playground? That’s where KaBOOM can help. KaBOOM is a national nonprofit dedicated to saving play. With the rate of children obesity rising, video games taking over building forts and television replacing outdoor adventures it’s more important then ever to promote “saving play”. KaBOOM has partnered with the National Environmental Education Foundation to promote National Public Lands Day (NPLD) and Play Days 2010, both being held on September 25.
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single outdoor volunteer event. KaBOOM! Play Day 2010 is a national celebration to save play in the lives of children and is being held between September 18-26, 2010. Those that participate in the NPLD and KaBOOM play day will eligible for improvements grants up to $10,000. Long on to playday.kaboom.org and start a project.
We our fortunate enough to live in a community with well maintained parks but do you? Does your friend or relative? This is an opportunity for even those that are fortunate enough to have great parks to help others become as fortunate as you. I can’t imagine my daughter not having a safe and clean playground to explore.
Every child should have the opportunity to be outdoors climbing the monkey bars, swinging through the air, and descanting down their favorite slide.
Why not? Great tips for free!
