Why The Playful Child Foundation?
Updated: Jun 26, 2019
There are events in life that profoundly change the direction and flow of your life. These events knock you down flat and getting up is the hardest thing you will ever have to do. You have to keep getting up each and every day. Not once, but over and over and over again. It is a battle that must be fought and won on a daily basis.
On March 22, 2018 our son, Kade Damian died in a horrible accident. Kade would have been 3 years old almost exactly a month later in April. We miss Kade so very much.
The Playful Child Foundation is our gift to the world in honor of Kade's exuberant, playful, and giving spirit. It is our hope that we can build a better world through play. By showing parents, educators, and communities why play is important and how it affects the development of children, we hope to create a world with healthier children mentally and physically. It is our goal to build stronger, more connected communities and families through play. We hope that you will join us on this journey! Come play, learn, grow, and thrive with The Playful Child Foundation!
