Playground. Pretty please?
Running for a reason. What a great concept! So here's the scoop: Can you imagine if you or your children never had the opportunity to play on a playground or slide on a slide or an opportunity to... be a kid? We're hoping to change that for the kiddos at Jonathan's House for Orphans (JHO) and all the children at the local village school. But it does cost a lot of money to build a structure that will stand the test of time and not be dismantled by others. We've been in contact with a non-profit organization to assist with this goal and now we just need the funds! We are hoping to raise $10,000 to make it happen. That's a lot of money! Can you help us? This playground will help so many children thrive and learn to be a kid in a place where, although it seems simple enough, it is a luxury. We currently have a great partnership with Dr. Marty Hove as he is helping to raise money through his Boston Marathon run. He will be donating all of the money raised to the children and raising money for this playground in particular... why not jump on board and donate to the cause? He's passionate about running and he's passionate about our kids. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that? :-) We're looking to build a playground so our kids can grow and learn and... be kids. Come donate and be a part of it pretty please!
