KaBOOM! builds in June 2013

Help me spread the word about a ton of playground builds KaBOOM! has in June, including Oklahoma City, Grand Rapids, Brooklyn, Austin, Louisville, Philly, Newark, and many, many more.

I did this once through a work thing. It was actually really fun.

Wait, this is real?!?!? I thought this was just on Parks ‘n’ Rec„,? What!?!?

Yeah this is totally a real organization. They build playgrounds for lower income daycares and schools. They daycare has to raise a certain amount of money, but it’s not much. It was really fun.

Our model isn’t so much about awarding grants (which we do), but it focuses on community building. Think stone soup and teaching a man to fish. It’s all explained in our Theory of Change.

And we are hiring.
