An Entrepreneur’s Quest to Build Community & SAVE PLAY!
The powerfully uplifting story of how one man overcame seemingly insurmountable odds and built one of the most successful nonprofits in our nation’s history Unleashing Possibilities chronicles Darell Hammond’s amazing journey from a childhood spent living in a group home in Illinois to becoming the cofounder and CEO of KaBOOM!, an organization with this mission at its core: harnessing the power of community to save play for children . . . one playground at a time.
This book demonstrates how one idealist can change the world and how small, civic-minded steps create a ripple effect that can precipitate change in communities and eventually change in the world at large. More than just a memoir, Unleashing Possibilities is a call to action that will inspire readers by challenging them to rethink traditional notions of community
and social change.
This is the story of a man with a vision: Play is the best natural resource in a creative economy. Kids need more of it—it is not a luxury but a necessity for their lives. Through hard work, commitment, and the conviction
that access to a safe play environment is the fundamental right of all children.
