One World Play Project Encourages You to #PlayToGive This Holiday Season

Give Back to Others with Play, Sharing Your Holiday Spirit, Stories and Support with #PlayToGive


BERKELEY, CALIF., Nov. 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The holidays are a time for giving! But why do we find ourselves stuck on the couch or in long lines at the mall? This holiday season, One World Play Project is embracing the season of giving with play--and encouraging folks to #PlayToGive: giving the gift of play with any One World Play Project purchase, so children around the world can have new opportunities for play too.

"The holidays are a season for joy and giving, and play is truly a gift that keeps on giving," says Lisa Tarver, One World Play Project founder and chief giving officer. "Through the power of play, we can connect with one another and provide opportunities for children to experience the joy and learning that comes through play, even for those living in the most difficult circumstances."

#PlayToGive Others the Gift of Play

At One World Play Project, we #PlayToGive time, laughs and good memories to our loved ones. We also play to share this joy with others by giving One World Futbols and play resources to children around the world in a variety of ways:

  • Buy One, Give One: With any One World Futbol purchase, you can help give One World Futbols to children in need through our Campaigns Program
  • Help Fund Play Projects: For any One World Play Project purchase, you have the option to fund various play projects to enable play opportunities for children around the world.
  • Start Your Own Campaign: From November 30 to December 30, 2015, all campaigns will automatically enter into a friendly competition. The campaign that raises the most One World Futbols during that time will receive $500 USD from One World Play Project for the organization of their choice as well as one item from our Play Shop. Start a campaign today, join the fun and earn cash for your favorite organization!

Join us as we play to give a little more this year, and tell us how you're doing the same using #PlayToGive on social media.
