Giving back to our community is at the core of our business! We are so fortunate to be able to support many wonderful organizations thanks to our customers!
Annually, we donate thousands of dollars in cash support, product donations, volunteer time, and special events. Our charitable giving priorities are in those areas that are closest to our hearts:
Kids are at the heart of everything we do!! From Theresa's background in developing youth programming for various non-profits, advocating for at-risk youth, and raising two awesome kids, to Todd's background as the best dad/ girl scout leader/ grandpa ever and his official Certified Play Expert status, we know a lot about kids! We also know, that children are the absolute most awesome humans, and they just need a little support to reach their full level of awesomeness! We know that kids learn valuable lessons through play- lessons you can't learn as easily or as early in any other way. We also know that giving kids the support, advocacy, and educational resources they need can be challenging. That's why we want to help!!! We allocate the vast majority of our volunteer time and charitable giving to kids, BECAUSE KIDS ARE THE BEST!!
We are proud to be a Veteran-Owned Business! Todd spent 27 years in the Army, which means Theresa was an "Army brat". We know all too well the challenges that military personel and their families face, both in service and when re-entering the civilian world. We are honored to serve those who serve our country.
We only have one Earth. It is more important now than ever that we do all we can to protect our natural resources and to ensure all of the awesome kids growing up now will have access to unspoiled nature to play in. When making purchasing decisions, we evaluate everything from materials, manufacturing process, and packaging and try to have the "greenest" products possible. All shipping from our online store is done in recycled packaging, and our bags are made in the US from recycled materials. It is also why we like to align our charitable giving with organizations who are protecting our environment.
