THE STORY:

RISE NOW INCORPORATED wrote -

       Help us reach our goal! Donate Today                                      Join our exciting work 

For 3 years our grassroots, 501(c)3, Nonprofit has been making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children and adults. How? By the simple act of bringing playgrounds to communities, schools and towns where there are none today.

We bring together people from around the world to volunteer on the planning and building of imaginative playgrounds made of post consumer tires.

So far we have:

  • Built 15 creative playgrounds. 
  • Involved over 300 hundred of volunteers, from 7 different countries. 
  • Repurposed over 2000 tires that were headed to landfills or incineration.
  • Impacted the lives of thousands of children and communities.

We have done this as a 100% volunteer run organization, funded purely by small donations from individuals like you.

These projects sow the seeds of hope and empowerment for all involved and we are asking for your support.

Next year we plan to do even more! We have 8 playground sites lined up. We will have 2 teams building simultaneously, upcycling another 2000 and turning them into dragons, rocket ships, elephants and more.

When we all work together: donors, volunteers, and partner organizations, free from religious, political or personal agendas, amazing positive progress can be made in short amounts of time. We have seen it with our own eyes.

Take a moment and consider what a wonderful privilege it is to have the opportunity to share the good fortune we experience. At RISE Now we believe that with this privilege comes a responsibility to serve.

Thank you for joining us in this effort.
