I am all about encouraging more play in life (particularly given the amazing weather and since I recently decluttered the playroom) so I'm thrilled and honored to announce my new ambassadorship with Let's Play, an organization devoted to inspiring play through general awareness and supporting playground builds and renovations around the country. This month marks Let's Play's one year anniversary and they are celebrating with their first playground build of the year in West Philadelphia (where a school was destroyed by a fire and students later provided input on the playground design that is being implemented today by over 200 volunteers!), and also by launching their Let's Play Pledge.
I encourage you to take the pledge (it's quick and easy!), play more (yay!), and also visit Let's Play if your community is in need of a playground overhaul. The organization has over $3 million in available grants this year, and grants range from $500 for playground completion projects to $30,000 to help build brand new playgrounds from the ground up. I'm totally thinking about applying for a small grant to fix up the broken elements of our neighborhood playground.
