KaBOOM! featured on the Today Show!

June 24, 2011

Exciting news -- KaBOOM! was featured on the Today Show this morning! Reported by Jenna Bush Hager, the segment profiled our 2,000 playground builds and our CEO and Founder Darell Hammond's bestselling book, KaBOOM!: How One Man Built a Movement to Save Play.

Jenna Bush Hager and a film crew visited a KaBOOM! playground in Philadelphia and spoke to KaBOOM! alumnus Imanni Wilkes. The crew then traveled to Mooseheart, the group home where Darell lived from age four to 18, and captured Darell talking to the kids who are current residents of the "child city."

The crew also visited Lawrence, Mass. on June 9, 2011 to see a KaBOOM! playground build in action.

The Today Show producer says the segment is one of their best and brought tears of joy to production staff and editors. Watch it now!
