YAY! for Peekaboo Beans. TOOT TOOT! We reached our goal of 5,000 views on You Tube for our Play Revolution Video and promised to donate $1,000 to local foundation, Playground Builders... and we have done just that. Since inception in 2007 this remarkable company has built approximately 20 playgrounds per year supplying safe play for over 250,000 children. WOW! What an amazing accomplishment, and that's just the start of it. They have built 100 playgrounds to date in worn-torn areas of the world like Iraq and Afghanistan providing children the opportunity to safely play like children were intended to. Currently Playground Builders is working on playgrounds 101, 102, 103, 104 & 105. Did I already say that this is amazing???

It doesn't take much to pull some neighbourhood friends together and make something incredible happen. All children need play in their lives, let's see what we all can do to assist Playground Builders with their goals.
On a side note, have you joined our Play Revolution? Our children are playing less than any previous generations, and this lack of play is causing them profound physical, intellectual, social and emotional harm. Experts say our kids are experiencing a Play Deficit. Take our Play Pledge today and support your child's right to develop and grow in a natural and healthy way.
