KaBOOM! is one of the the largest non-profit organizations in the United States dedicated to saving play for children. They envision a safe play area within walking distance of every child in America. The first playground was built in 1995, and KaBOOM! was officially founded in 1996. Since then, 6,044,470 children have been served, 1,099,194 volunteers have been engaged, and 14,232 playgrounds have been built, opened or improved!
This month, KaBOOM! wants you to show a little playground love!
Send in photos of your favorite playgrounds and check out other submissions on their Facebook page. You can also follow along on Twitter or Instagram using #ilovemyplayground. Three Grand Prize Winners will each receive a set of two Buddy Bounce Balls and five Runner-Up Winners will each receive a copy of the book Go Out and Play: Favorite Outdoor Games from KaBOOM!
The deadline is February 19th… so get out and play… and take some photos!
