How far can your $2 go?

Peekaboo Beans wants to give children from all walks of life the opportunity and right to safely play. This is why we have partnered up with Vancouver based non-profit organization, Playground Builders and starting November 1st, Peekaboo Beans will give you the option to purchase a $2 donation to fund Playground Builders with your On-Vine Beans order.  Or if placing an order with a Play Stylist, simply advise them to add the $2 donation to your total.  Peekaboo Beans is on a mission with our Play Revolution to bring PLAY back into the lives of children everywhere.  Our children are playing less than any previous generations, and this lack of play is causing them profound physical, intellectual, social and emotional harm. Experts say our kids are experiencing a Play Deficit.  As parents we need to and support our child's right to develop and grow in a natural and healthy way, no matter what walk of life we are from. 
You can find and add the $2 donation to your Peekaboo Beans order under our Really Neat Things section in the On-Vine Site HERE.  See our Ingredients of a Playground below to find out exactly how your contribution will be used in order to bring PLAY back into the lives of children everywhere.
A bit about Playground Builders:
Playground Builders is a nonprofit that builds playgrounds for children in war-torn areas. There is often no safe place for children in these communities to play. Most have never experienced the joy of a swing or the thrill of a slide. Playground Builders is dedicated to building hope and peace through the gift of play.
To date, they have supported the construction of more than 100 playgrounds throughout Afghanistan, Iraq and the Palestinian Territories. But this is just the beginning. There are many more children, schools, orphanages and communities in dire need of safe havens for play.  Playgournd Buliders are building hope, one playground at a time.
