I’ve partnered with GoGo squeeZ as part of their “Pass the Play” campaign. GoGo squeeZ believes in the simple mantra of “always play” and is putting this belief to work through the “Pass the Play” campaign with the goal of bringing the simple joy of play to those who need it most across the country
Through “Pass the Play” you can:
- email community@gogosqueez to request a “Pass the Play” kick ball and play the largest game of catch. 10,000 kick balls are being distributed nationwide, so people can enjoy the simple goodness of play and then pass that play to someone they know that needs some play in their life. Everyone who registers a ball will be entered to winfun prizes by tracking the kick balls at www.PassthePlay.com
- tweet #passtheplay and $1 will be donated to The Fresh Air Fund with the goal of raising $25,000, which will allow more inner-city boys and girls to participate in programs that can change the course of a child’s life
- visit GoGo squeeZ at the “Pass the Play” mobile playground, which is visiting 10 cities across the country.
