Darell Hammond and KaBOOM! have built over 1,800 playgrounds across the US. Hammond has long been concerned about the fact that fewer than half of all children in the USA have access to a community playground, so he founded KaBOOM! to help make a difference.

Darell Hammond and KaBOOM! hope that others will also bring volunteers and project supporters together to create change, and that their efforts will serve as a model for building even more playground facilities in neighborhoods that don't have them.
