Kaboom comes to cities and towns like a traveling circus. Does NOT distribute information as suggested on its website. Fails to follow up on its projects as suggested on its website. Travels from community to community and forgets the last community in its wake. #KaboomFlatLeaves

KaBOOM! brings the joy of play to children and families all over the country. Not only do they lead volunteers in building playgrounds in just one day, they help groups to organize on their own and advocate for more play for kids everywhere.

Hey, the folks at KaBOOM! get playgrounds built and a lot more.

They have built nearly 2,000 playgrounds, raised $200 million and marshaled 100,000 volunteers throughout the country and internationally.

Did a one day build--well organized, great community participation along side us corporate folks, all the tools and materials where on site and 300 volunteers where put to work seamlessly. I volunteer a lot and this was the best experience I've had and can't wait to do it again. Other non profits who manage volunteers should take note.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a playground in a day or 7 hours!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working side by side with community members who also volunteered.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the kaboom onsite team where amazing, high energy, well organized and great communicators.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change with face of communities for kids to be more playful.
