LIFEPLAY update!

PLAY's LIFEPLAY program has been ROCKING! This summer LIFEPLAY made a HUGE difference in a lot of kid's lives. PLAY issued 7 grants and made a HUGE donation!

Here is the skinny:

LIFEPLAY grants enabled four kids to go to scout camp this summer. These boys would not have otherwise been able to attend what I have been told was an EPIC week of fun in the sun, shenanigans, and downpours! They had a BLAST!

Grants were awarded to three kids who are on competitive soccer teams who otherwise would not have been able to continue on their soccer journey. All families involved have two or more kids, which makes these grants even more impactful on the families!

LIFEPLAY donated $10,000 USD to Chaos and Kindness to help them buy school supplied for children in need. Here is the blurb from their website on what they are about:


Chaos & Kindness is a worldwide brand and movement created by the founder of Recycled Percussion, Justin Spencer. Justin and his cousin, Ryan Vezina, launched Chaos & Kindness in their home state of New Hampshire with one goal in mind: to show the world you can live life to its fullest while having fun and giving back. Chaos & Kindness is how Justin and Ryan live their own lives. They live large, loving every bit of chaos life has to offer, and making it a point to be kind, to be thankful, and to always give back. They've now built a Chaos & Kindness team with the intention to take the world by storm, inspiring people to take on big challenges, set goals, live large, and always be kind. Our unique products are made to inspire people to live life with purpose and positivity. A percentage of all of our sales always goes toward making the world a kinder place."

This gift marks the single largest contribution from LIFEPLAY to an organization, and we hope to continue to be able to make such lifechanging donations with your help!

PLAY Game and Creator Tool Development is in full swing!

The devs at PLAY are working HARD to get games, creator tools, integrations and all manner of Creator Coin goodness built! I don't want to spill the beans TOO early, but keep your eyes peeled for PLAY created projects being released in the next few weeks!
