This is a blog for my senior project at Basha High in Arizona. I'm going to do volunteer work and write about it here on my blog.

KaBOOM! say on their homepage:
"Our children are playing less than any previous generation, and this lack of play is causing them profound physical, intellectual, social, and emotional harm. Not enough playspaces are being built; those that exist are often in disrepair.
  • Kids are overscheduled
  • In their free time, many choose to stay indoors, lulled by television, computers and video games.
The Play Deficit is an important problem, and it is imperative that we solve it to ensure our children have long, healthy, and happy lives."
What they do:
Constructing innovative, kid-inspired playspaces, using a community-build model that improves the well-being of the children we serve as well as the neighborhoods in which they live. Sharing the knowledge and tools needed for anyone to find, improve, and/or build playgrounds on their own. Building a broad movement driven by research, analysis, policy, and community engagement.
In saving play, we are creating:
  • Healthier, happier, and smarter children
  • Greener cities
  • Better schools
  • Stronger neighborhoods
To date, KaBOOM! has built over 2,000 playgrounds, saving play for over 5.5 million children.
