I love KaBoom!
They are a non-profit organization with a very simple mission statement: a playground within walking distance of every child.
KaBoom! contacted me to spread the word about their summer playground challenge. I follow KaBoom on Twitter and obviously have begun an unofficial playground tour with my own little Chicagoans. But now, I can keep on visiting playgrounds AND have a chance to win some cool gift cards and maybe even a week-long trip for two to Washington, DC!
After spending my summer carting the kids around to playgrounds, I am going to need some downtime alone with Mr. LKBC!
Here's the deal from the mouth of KaBoom!
We don’t want kids sitting around inside all summer—we want them at the playground! So this summer we’re challenging parents to take their kids to as many playgrounds as they can.
As parents map each playground using our Tag! mobile app, they are entered to win gift cards and other great prizes. They also earn points and badges toward one of three Grand Prizes: a week-long trip for two to Washington, DC.
Challengers are not only motivated to get outside with their families and play this summer, but they are also contributing to a great cause. By mapping playgrounds across the country, they will help us determine where playgrounds need to be built.
