KaBOOM! Blog Tour & Starbucks Giveaway

I firmly believe in letting my kids enjoy fresh air and outside play on a regular basis. One of the reasons we homeschool is to allow them plenty of free time to play, exercise, and use their imaginations. We are lucky that we have a number of nice play areas near us, and when Mom Central asked if I would help spread the word about KaBOOM! I was happy to join.

KaBOOM! is a national, non-profit organization that helps communities build playgrounds. They are currently trying to list 100,000 play spaces in 100 days in order to raise $100,000! The best part? You can help!

Visit KaBOOM!'s site and join the Mom Central team (that link will take you to Mom Central's page.) For every playspace you enter, $1 will be donated to a fund to build more playspaces. As I'm typing this, 7,435 playspaces have been entered and there are 72 days left in this campaign.

I know you have a favorite park or 2 where your kids love to play! Won't you visit and enter your favorite playspace? Check out the playspaces already entered and you may find a new favorite spot!

As extra encouragement, I have a $10 Starbucks Gift Card to send one of my readers that joins Mom Central's team! After you've joined, and entered at least one playspace, come back here and leave a comment. Let me know what ZIP your favorite playspace is located in, and I'll draw a random comment to receive the gift card. Contest will end May 1, 2009 at midnight.


  1. Thank you so much for helping to spread the word! We linked back to your post here.
