Round Up Your Change To Help Kids Play

  1. Updates

Did you know that there are over 104,000 elementary age kids in Georgia? Many of these kids don’t get to experience regular recess and the opportunity to learn essential life skills that will set them up for success in the 21st Century Global Workforce.

Playworks has partnered with SoftGiving to provide a platform for anyone to contribute to the success of our youth today!

By joining our Changemaker Program and using your everyday debit or credit card to donate pennies, you can ensure that Playworks provides Georgia kids with healthy and inclusive play.

Elementary students with strong social and emotional skills are:
  • 54% more likely to graduate from high school
  • 2x more likely to attain a college degree
  • 46% more likely to have a full-time job by age 25
Sign up to donate your change and transform those pennies to play. As a thank you, one lucky donor who signs up by June 30 will receive a $50 restaurant gift card.
Together, we can help kids impact each other and transform their school in a positive way on the playground, in the classroom, and in life.
