Dancing with the stars, Julianne Hough has joined KaBOOM, to find 100,000 play spaces in 100 days. The organization is planning to map and rate playspaces nationwide.Â This will be a great resource for families. But more importantly, it will also help identify locations that need playgrounds built!
Part of being healthy is being active.Â Kids need a safe place to run, jump and have fun while being active. So having enough playgrounds designed and designated for safe play is very important.
They can use your help. Just visit KaBOOM's Playspace Finder and mark your favorite playground. You can even upload a picture. (You will need to create a username in order to enter this information)
For every playground that is marked on the map through June 30, Hough will donate $1 to one of six charities (up to $100,000), including YMCA of the USA, National Wildlife Federation, Shaping America's Health, Jumpstart, America's Promise Alliance and First Book.
To find a nearby playground, use the KaBOOM map!
