Foundation donates to Rise Now

The Emily Sandall Foundation is proud to give a donation to Rise Now, an organization that works with rural communities in Mexico to organize the building of playgrounds of recycled tires. These playgrounds will directly:
– Improve the lives of hundreds of children by providing new opportunities for safe, imaginative play and the benefits play provides.
– Train local community members in tire construction techniques, as well as methods for proper playground care and maintenance.
– Repurpose 50-100 discarded tires, saving them from incineration causing extreme air pollution or from sitting in landfills where they serve as Malaria and Dengue breeding grounds.
I know Emily would love this project as she was passionate about ensuring that all children have access to free, creative play.
