KaBOOM! has been featured in several blogs over the past couple of weeks, including the Harvard Business Publishing blog, which lifted us up as an example of a non-profit doing great work in social networking.
Harvard Business Publishing blog says:
"The online toolkit and playspace finder have extended KaBOOM's reach and impact; instead of relying entirely on staff and funders, KaBOOM! uses online community tools to engage volunteers in mapping and developing playspaces nationwide."
Blissfully Domestic says:
"Many kudos to KaBoom's founder, Darrell Hammond, and the entire organization. Who doesn't love to play?"
"I've recently signed up at KaBOOM!, a site that has a 'playspace finder,' only to find that no one there knows where the local parks are around here either. So I guess that will be my 'act of kindness' mission this summer... to add and rate any parks I find to their database. You should do it too, for the sanity of all kid herders out there."
"With some spots in better neighborhoods than others, some public, some private and some geared toward different age groups, KaBOOM! helps you plan a great escape from the rush, rush, rush of vacation."
The Dirty Shirt says:
"I am a firm believer that kids need to play. Nothing is more free than running around in a park, breathing fresh air and enjoying life. So let’s all help to make those great places for kids the best they can be. And help make a child that has never been to a playground or park experience that feeling for the first time!"
