Safe Playground for Kids of Quepos


Hello! My name is Phillip Carrillo and I need you to help me rebuild a playground in the small town of Quepos Costa Rica! I moved here from the United States to teach English as a foreign language. After immersing and getting to know the welcoming community of Quepos, something huge changed for me and I’m a believer in everything happening for a reason. Quepos is a beautiful small town that is filled with kindness, family, and lots of kids. When walking to school everyday, I noticed a small playground that had been closed for years right in the middle of town. After many meetings with the town government and hurdling some language barriers, the Mayor of Quepos has granted me a permit to rebuild a new playground for all children right here in town! I know that there are many kids here that need a safe place to play, have fun, and most importantly, learn. The design of the playground is supported by a focus on education including chalkboards, art, and history.  I am lucky that I have been given the opportunity to help the children of Queops in a way that is both fun and educational. So please, if you have anything to offer every penny will make a difference. ALL of the funds will be going into the development of the playground. Help me to provide a safe place for the future of this world to live, learn, and lets not forget HAVE FUN. As doners you will remain updated and presented with the finished playground by the end of February! All for the kids! Pura Vida


Want to do even more? I am currently recruiting any volunteers and building a team who are over 18 to visit Quepos and work hands on with the projects I have here starting with the playground. I currently have free housing for any volunteers who are willing to come to this tropical paradise and make a difference. This is no joke, I have been granted permits and housing for any volunteers to come here and live for free while working on the projects. If you are serious, and committed to working hard to make a difference here by helping others, please reach out to me at [email redacted] I would like to talk to you in detail about the opportunities I have for volunteers right now! In the past I have volunteered in the USA, Mexico, and South Africa and I will tell you this: There is no amount of money in the world or material objects that can replace the amazing experiences I will have forever by volunteering. I am here to share more of these experiences to anyone and everyone . Costa is Calling!


From the bottom of my heart, thank you for anything and everything.
