Supporting girls soccer in New Jersey

Wayne, New Jersey
We're proud to partner with the Sound of Gol Foundation - a global nonprofit that supports youth development using the “world’s game” of soccer and the arts to empower social and personal growth. The Foundation was inspired by the animated series, La Golda, which encourages kids to take action and do good around the world. We're helping with a gently-used clothing drive at the Sound of Gol’s Soccer Clinic & Girls Tournament on Thursday, June 28 from 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in Wayne, New Jersey. This free event requires participants bring a bag of new or gently used clothing which will be donated to a foundation for underserved kids in Rosario, Argentina. Our volunteers will help collect, sort, fold, pack and label the donations so they can make their way to Argentina.

Bringing Play to Tucson

Udall Park
The City of Tucson is facing a budget deficit. There is no money in the Parks & Recreation Department's budget to replace playgrounds that are old and in disrepair, like the one in Udall Park, which was 25+ years old, had started to rust and was missing pieces. As part of our ongoing effort to build healthier communities and decrease the incidence of obesity, "Do Good. Live Well." teamed up with KaBOOM! and the City of Tucson to build a new playground at Udall Park. On Wednesday, May 23 more than 200 volunteers from the community built an engaging and safe play space in six hours. We provided a safe and fun place for nearly 1,200 children to play annually!

Bringing Play to South Houston Elementary

South Houston, Texas
"We're competing with technology and I'm afraid that before too long everything will be like the movie WALL-E." -Coach Blanco, PE Teacher, South Houston Elementary   As part of our ongoing effort to build healthier communities and decrease the incidence of obesity, "Do Good. Live Well." has once again partnering with KaBOOM! to build a playground build together - the 26th playground we've built since 2010! In the fall of 2017 South Houston Elementary and many of its students were affected by Hurricane Harvey. In fact, it took the school seven months until they were able to use their gym, because Harvey's flooding damaged the wood floor. With the helping hands of our volunteers, we built a playground in one day.
