April Teleconference: Engaging Corporate Partners to Create a Movement

Cause Marketing Master Series Presents Darell Hammond, Founder of KaBOOM!
Apr 5, 2011 12:59 AM ET
(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) April 4, 2011 - In 1996, Darell Hammond read a story in The Washington Post about Lesha and Clendon, a young sister and brother who suffocated while playing in an abandoned car because they didn’t have anywhere else to play.  He was appalled by this tragedy, and it inspired him to found KaBOOM!.   Since then, cause marketing leader KaBOOM! has grown from a two-person operation run from the back table of a deli into a national nonprofit organization that – in its 15th Birthday Year – will have raised $200 million, rallied 1 million volunteers, led the hands-on construction of 2,000 playgrounds, and inspired a movement to give children the time and space to play. 

As Cause Marketing Master Darell Hammond recounts in his upcoming book, KaBOOM!: How One Man Built a Movement to Save Play, KaBOOM! has fueled its cause largely through creative cause marketing partnerships with corporations. 

  Join us April 19th to hear about how KaBOOM! is engaging companies in building the national movement to save play and how cause marketing has played a role.
