Not to sound like our grandparents or anything, but when we were kids, we would spend hours upon hours playing outside with our friends. Pick-up games of basketball, spontaneous soccer tournaments, running, playing, and having fun. We were outside from sun-up until sundown.
We want that same thing for our kids and so does Kraft Heinz Project Play. This is why they are committing over $300,000 in upgrades and support for Canadian places to play, from soccer fields and community centres to basketball courts and and baseball fields across the country.
If you don’t know the deets on the Kraft Heinz Project Play initiative, you are not going to want to miss the #PlacetoPlay Twitter party on Tuesday May 31at 9pm. Not only will you have a chance to win prizes for yourself, you’re going to learn how you can win $250,000 for your local rec facility.
Do you have a rec centre, basketball court, soccer field, swimming pool or another play area in your community that needs an upgrade? Take a picture of it because we’ll be sharing those photos throughout the conversation.
Curiosity got the best of you? Go check out Kraft Heinz Project Play right now to learn how you can nominate a facility in your community. The chance to nominate a facility ends on June 12!
In the meantime, here’s what you can win at the #PlacetoPlay Twitter party.
One grand prize winner will receive a $250 pre-paid Visa gift card.
Three secondary prize winners will each receive a $50 pre-paid Visa gift card.
Let’s make sure our kids all have great places to play.
