Take the PLEDGE and be proud to PLAY each and every day. After you take the pledge you can download one of the various patches to put on your site, facebook, myspace, twitter or where ever you like — even print it out and stick it on your fridge. We also put your name up on our Pledge Wall. The goal is to promote positive PLAY for all ages. Take the pledge!
I hereby pledge to embrace the JOY of PLAY with every opportunity I can create. I will play Shadow-Tag when the sun is shining, and play ball when it is not (even if it is with a ball of socks)!. I will dance even when someone is watching (and especially when they are not!), I will move with vigor every day and learn to have FUN again. I accept the challenge to be silly, to let loose, to roll on the floor laughing while I crunch or push my way to better health.
I will share this JOY with others by inviting them to play too! I will do my best to promote and/or to provide opportunities for play in my community, in my neighborhood, and in my home. I understand that PLAY is essential for youth and adults alike, and that through PLAY I will enhance the quality, vitality, and enjoyment of my life and of those around me. I hereby give myself permission to laugh with enthusiasm, to move with vigor, and to PLAY with JOY!
