Inspired by senseless violence in Newtown, Connecticut and in an effort to restore the storm ravaged east coast after Hurricane Sandy, we endeavor to create 26 living memorials to all children who have been victims of violence while creating safe, fun places for children to be children. May these playgrounds provide a symbol of hope, recovery and a return to normalcy. A gift to our youth in an effort to enhance and sustain their precious childhood.

March 1, 2014 will mark the one year anniversary of the first WHERE ANGELS PLAY FOUNDATION'S playground which was built in Sea Bright, NJ to commemorate the lives of those lost in Newton, Ct. To celebrate we are holding a Polar Plunge on the beach in Sea Bright at 9am. To date we have already built 16 of 26 playgrounds throughout NY, NJ, and CT in areas that were ravaged by Superstorm Sandy. We plan to use proceeds of this event to help to fund the remaining 10 playgrounds in this blessed project.

I had originally pledged to raise $2,600.00 for this event and seeing as I did, I figured why not try for $5200. So I could use your support. Since many have expressed an interest in helping me reach my goal, here is an easy and secure way to help with your pledges.

Every little bit helps, weather it's $5 ,$10, $20, $50, or $100. Corporate sponsors are also welcome.
And YES, for those who asked, when I meet this goal, I will be plunging in an angel costume! Pictures will be posted after the event.
