Healing Through Play
Play is a crucial factor in children's overall well-being, especially in times of stress and trauma.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastating impact to the communities along the coast of New York and New Jersey, you can help bring the joy of play back to children in need.
Coastal New Jersey and New York need our help now.
At KaBOOM!, we know that play is a critical part of the coping and healing process for kids. The physical and social opportunities created through play enable kids to return to the important business of being kids. KaBOOM! is mobilizing multiple Imagination Playground sets, our playground in a box, to affected areas. This is a means of bringing the joy of play back to kids immediately.
Rebuilding community playgrounds is a longer-term process.
With your help, KaBOOM! will be there when these communities in need are ready to create great places for the children to play. All donations will be used for the construction of new playgrounds in the coastal areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. Your gift will bring the joy of play back to children and help them begin the healing process.
