The most-often asked question from the schools and organizations we work with is–how do I involve my community in the fundraising efforts to bring Imagination Playground blocks to the children? The answer is–we have enabled dozens of community fundraising efforts. Communities love to help!

Some sites that might help you get started are GoFundMe.com, DonorsChoose.org, and YouCaring.com. All sites have their rules and regulations—but all provide an opportunity for you to set up a customized fundraising site.  These sites are free to create (there are minimal donor fees for processing), easy to set up, and ready for use in minutes. We truly haven’t seen an organization fail at this!

GoFundMe.com DonorsChoose.org YouCaring.com

The simple steps to fundraising online include:

  1. Create your fundraising campaign on one of the sites.  We suggest using some of the videos and photos from the Imagination Playground website to make your page colorful, interactive, and easy to explain!
  2. Share with family, friends, and your community through Facebook, Twitter, and Emails.  All of these sites help you do this from their dashboard.
  3. Accept donations with a check, bank transfer, and in some cases, credit cards…all handled through the site!
  4. Manage your campaign—make changes, post updates, and even send thank you notes!

Schools and organizations have gotten very creative with donor bonuses…from signed artwork as a thank you from one of the children for a $25 gift, to a free hour of family playtime with the blocks for a larger donation.  Either way, a personalized thank you to the donor is easy to do from the site and much appreciated by the donor.

We’d love to help!  Please reach out with fundraising questions or if you need assistance determining which block set would suit your needs.  Please contact us at

Michelle Obama, Let’s Move! and Imagination Playground partner to transform children’s lives.

In our neverending mission to transform children’s lives through play, Imagination Playground has been honored to receive the support from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Her Let’s Move! initiative has dedicated itself to solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and have the ability to pursue their dreams.

how does this partnership come to life?

Let’s Move! and Michelle Obama have partnered with Imagination Playground and KaBOOM! to cut the ribbon of new, innovative Imagination Playground locations around the country; including donations of new playgrounds in Washington DC, Philadelphia, the Louisiana Children’s Museum in New Orleans, and the Woodlands Children Museum in Texas.

This allowed thousands of children and families to witness monumental impact of Imagination Playground on their neighborhoods, communities, schools, etc.

michelle obama and imagination playground share a common vision: transforming children’s minds, bodies and spirits through play.

Throughout the years, Michelle Obama famously made impassioned pleas for play, mentioning that: “We as a society need to redefine for our kids what play is. We as a society need to make physical activity a part of our kids’ daily lives again, and we need to do it in a way that is easy, affordable and fun — not just for kids but for parents“.

We could not agree more, and look forward to an exciting future to our privileged relationship with Let’s Move! and First Lady Michelle Obama. May hundreds of new playgrounds transform thousands of children’s minds, bodies, and spirits.

“You don’t have to have a specially built playground. You have this rolling box that’s almost like a magician’s chest of loose parts. It’s amazing to see kids interact with the things.” – Adrian Benepe, NYC Parks & Recreation Commissioner

Quote from Heraclitus on men, children, and play

Inspirational quote from Heraclitus about man and play

“Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play” – Heraclitus
