The Grand Opening Of The 1st Kind Coins for Hurricane Relief Playground

Peaceful Hearts Playground Photo Album

Drumroll please!!! We are thrilled to present the 1st Kind Coins for Hurricane Relief Playground built at Bales Intermediate School in Friendswood, Texas! The Friendswood community and students are bursting with pride and joy as they reveal the new playground. It truly is a special place that not only will help the community heal, and provide students with everyday joy, but also serves as a symbol of the unity, kindness, and generosity that YOU showed. Thank you to all the students, families, and schools for making this possible!

Let's Keep The Kindness Going! Let's Build The Remaining 3 Playgrounds.

Seeing all the joy and the difference a new playground has already made for the Friendswood community, we are fired up to continue with the kindness momentum and are determined to build the 3 remaining playgrounds in Puerto Rico, Florida, and Louisiana. With YOUR generosity, plus with the support of our friends at Hasbro who are helping us “double-down on kindness," we know we can do it! The Hasbro Children’s Fund will match every dollar we raise through the Kind Coins for Hurricane Relief program through February 15th, up to $100,000! Let's do it!

It’s not too late! You can help build playgrounds in 4 simple steps:
  1. Watch the inspiring Kind Coins for Hurricane Relief video
  2. Download tools & video learning guides from the GKC tools page (i.e., Parent Letter in English & Spanish and Video Learning Guides for Grades PreK-2, 3-8, & High School)
  3. Collect coins
  4. Submit your Contribution Form and Kind Coins by check or money order. Make payable to Kids for Peace & mail to:

Share Your #KindCoins Photos & Inspire Others

Your students are at the forefront of the Kind Coins for Hurricane Relief campaign, and are truly making a difference by bringing healing and joy to the communities so severely impacted by the 2017 hurricanes. We want to share your KINDNESS and inspire others to join this important cause. Please send your #KindCoins photos to Kirsten@KidsforPeaceGlobal.org and we may proudly feature them in our gratitude video. Thank you for helping us amplify the impact as we build ALL 4 playgrounds at hurricane-affected schools.
