Help get Houston playgrounds fixed after Ike

Just a quick pass-along from a nonprofit doing good work in Houston after Ike:

KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to bringing play back into the lives of children, is currently focused on the areas impacted by Hurricane Ike.

KaBOOM! is asking area residents to load pictures of damaged playgrounds onto the KaBOOM! Playspace Finder, so that they can match playgrounds in need with volunteers and resources to help repair them. If you know of a great place to play that needs attention share it with others.

KaBOOM! has received commitments from 24 Hour Fitness, Texon, The Home Depot, and Chrysler to build playgrounds in the Houston area. Watch videos of an all-volunteer, done-in-a-day KaBOOM! playground build. You can apply for a KaBOOM! playground build, learn about our work in areas affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, or attend a webinar to learn how to build a playground yourself.
