This week, the blog "Maria's Space" reviewed the kaboom.org website and the KaBOOM! Playspace Finder! Here's what she had to say:
"Play is an important part of childhood. A fun safe place for children is crucial when it comes to community playgrounds.
"Safety was the reason KaBoom was born. In 1995 24-year-old Darell Hammond read a story in the two children who suffocated while playing in an abandoned car because they didn’t have anywhere else to play. Knowing this was preventable he embarked on making changes that would affect his life and the life of children everywhere. He finally received financial backing from Kimberly-Clark and the rest as they say is history."
