"Last week, I mentioned Kaboom's efforts to build playgrounds across America (see "Child's Play: Hands-On Hurricane Recovery by Building Playgrounds"). I met Annie Lynsen, a manager at the Washington-based nonprofit, at a convention over the weekend."

"That’s right! Today is the day to get serious about playing. Yeah, I didn’t know either until I met up with Annie from KaBOOM! She let me in on the news that today is the Worldwide Day of Play. Here’s the news about it."

"Much like with International Crochet Day a couple weeks ago, I didn't know this was going on until I stumbled across it in my usual RSS feed (Liz writes great social media stuff). Anyway, I read it AFTER I had, in fact, come home from playing. LITERALLY."

Stonyfield Farm/Kaboom Playground Grant
Peaceful Playgrounds
"Kaboom and Stonyfield Farm have joined up to offer a grant for $50,000 toward a volunteer-built playspace. Schools collect lids to specially-marked yogurt containers for Stonyfield Farm yogurt between now and December 31, 2008. The group that sends in the most lids wins."
