Right To Play is a global organization that protects, educates, and empowers children and youth to rise above adversity using the power of play. They reach 2.3 million children each year in some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth, helping them to stay in school and graduate, resist exploitation, overcome prejudice, prevent disease, and heal from the traumas of war. They do this by harnessing play, one of the most fundamental forces in a child’s life, to teach the critical skills needed to dismantle barriers and embrace opportunities, in learning and in life.
This month, Right To Play is launching its newest event: the Play It Forward virtual challenge, which is open to anyone willing to engage in their playful side for a good cause — no matter your age. From June 18–July 1, a new daily challenge will be issued to keep participants connected, active, and having fun while empowering millions around the world, including Indigenous children and youth in Canada. Friends and family can sponsor participants, earning them more points — and more chances to win one of the top prizes!
Now more than ever, Right To Play needs the help of supporters to fund critical programming throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds raised will benefit Right To Play’s mission and ensure that programs can continue in Canada and in the 14 other countries in which they operate.
