I can remember when I was a child I would jump out of bed on a warm summer morning, barrel past my breakfast and rush out the door looking for my amazing adventure of the day. There were no structured games, sports or daycamps to attend. It was just a day full of imagination and friends. I can remember riding my bike down to the corner candy store with a dollar in my pocket and then stopping to watch the neighborhood boys play street hockey on the way home. That was the life.
Unfortunately my happy memories are not the memories of some children. Some children live in fear and pain. Research shows that when a child has been abused and feels afraid they loose their ability to play.
A childhood without play? That just isn’t right.
Because we think all kids deserve a chance to play and heal we have decided to join GoGo Squeeze on a very important mission; helping kids learn to have fun. With this campaign GoGo Squeeze has graciously offered to donate $1 (up to $100,000) to the Life is Good: Playmakers for every share of the campaign’s #gogoplayfully hashtag or ANY of the multimedia content on GoPlayfully.com.
The money donated through this campaign will be used to help train child care professionals in the art of playing with a child to help them grow strong and feel safe.
So lets help donate to the cause. Tweet using the hashtag #gogoplayfully or go to GoPlayfully.com to connect. Its easy!
Wait. . there’s more! GoGo Squeeze is giving away 50 playful kits full of fun things for you to share with your kids this summer. Enter to win this fabulous (and fun) prize below and get playful!:
