Life is Good Playmakers

EverybodyFights selected our good friends at Life is Good and their amazing Playmakers Program as their latest recipient of funds from our Community Foundation Hat.

About Life is Good Playmakers:

The term “Playmaker” comes from sports and refers to someone who makes good things happen when their team needs them most.

Simply put, a Life is Good Playmaker is someone who spreads the power of optimism to children who desperately need it.

Through our signature Playmaker Program, the Life is Good Kids Foundation supports the men & women who dedicate their careers to helping children heal from the devastating impact of early childhood trauma.

We provide retreats, tools, and on-going coaching to more than 10,000 childcare professionals (that we call Playmakers) working in schools, hospitals, and social service agencies across the US and Haiti.  We help these professionals transform their care settings into optimal environments for kids to learn, heal, and thrive.

Each year our work with Playmakers helps more than 1 million kids overcome the traumas associated with poverty, violence, and illness.
