Praise

“It takes equal parts audacity, creativity, and vision to build an organization as successful as KaBOOM!–and Darell Hammond has that special blend. I’m proud to have partnered with the organization as First Lady of California to bring 31 new playgrounds to the state’s neediest communities, including the first volunteer-built intergenerational playground in California. It’s a partnership that continues to change lives and transform these communities.” —Maria Shriver, award-winning journalist, bestselling author and activist
