In the wake of disaster, we can’t forget our children. As they cope with the loss of their homes, schools, and playgrounds, we need to ensure that they and their families are getting the help, support, and attention they need.
KaBOOM! will contribute to long-term rebuilding efforts to ensure that kids in Oklahoma don’t risk missing out on their childhoods. For children whose lives have been turned upside-down, play is absolutely essential for maintaining a sense of stability amidst turmoil and helping them to work through emotional trauma. That’s because play is simple, familiar and joyful – all the things that adversity is not.
In the meantime, organizations on the ground in Moore, Oklahoma are seeking resources to address the community’s immediate needs. Save the Children is coordinating a response effort to provide urgent aid for affected children and families. Please support their worthy efforts by making a donation today.
