It started with a Little Red Wagon...

Zach...and led to a brand-new playground in Tampa!

On Oct. 24, while millions of people across the nation participated in Make A Difference Day, the Little Red Wagon Foundation, KaBOOM!,  Bank of America and over 200 volunteers teamed up to build a great new place to play for the children of Tampa Bay, Fla. You can see photos from the Build Day here.

The Little Red Wagon Foundation was founded by Zach Bonner, now age 12, who began doing community service in 2004 after Hurricane Charlie took the homes of hundreds of families throughout Florida. Since 2005, Zach has raised awareness and funds for homeless children across the country with a number of walking tours, each almost 300 miles long! In 2010, he is planning a walk to span the nation from Tampa, Fla. to Los Angeles.
