Make A Donation!

All Playitforward Kids events are free to the children who participate. With your donation, we will continue to be able to offer this to every child that wishes to participate! All your donations go directly towards our supplies and event materials that are given to our community recipients. We help fostered children, homeless persons, sheltered families and pets, policemen, firemen, nursing homes, neighbors, and any one in need! Thank you for your support!

Hello! I’m Kristy Sorensen the founder of Playitforward Kids.

I am extremely excited that you are interested in joining the Playitforward kids community. Playitforward Kids is an initiative to help families introduce fun and playful ideas to promote their children to be more kind, generous, giving, and thoughtful on a daily basis. There are many articles that support the fact that it is necessary to teach your children how to be kind.  Sometimes, they act out with emotions of anger, disappointment and selfishness until we are able to show or teach them how to be kind and appreciative. Our events help so many individuals in our community, but while doing so, we are setting an example of just how to love your neighbor!  We make toys for sheltered pets, lunches for the homeless, craft with nursing homes, rake leaves for our neighbors, clean up parks, beaches, thank our police officers, cheer on our special needs friends and so much more!

Playitforward kid’s monthly events are a simple and fun activity that promote kindness in this world. Join us now to be a Playitforward kid, and someday grow up to be a Playitforward Adult. We can’t wait to Playitforward with you!

My children and I participated in our first playitforward event today. It was timely as we visited a police station to thank them for their service. Not only did the kids learn gratitude, safety lessons but had so much fun touring the station, jail, and a police car as well! Very impressed at what Kristy has created. Thanks for giving back in such a beautiful way!

My children have had nothing but positive experiences participating in play it forward kids events! I love that they have fun while giving back to our community. Such a wonderful idea and amazing group!

Great experience!! My kids, 6 and 3, both learned what it means to be part of the community. Loved hearing them discuss what they learned at the dinner table. Thanks Playitforward Kids!

I just went to my first event recently and it was a great time for my son and I. It’s a way for my toddler to experience what we discuss at home and really see that kindness matters. A lesson they are ready to learn much younger than I thought!

Playitforward is a wonderful organization that we are so lucky to have in our community. I want my children to learn how important it is to help others and playitforward teaches that from a very young age. They also learn how it is fun to help others and at the same time meet new people. My daughter (and me) both look forward to the events.

This was our first event with PlayItForward & what a wonderful time my twin boys had. Helping others especially fostered children was a heartfelt experience for all of us. What a blessing to be part of this group packing toy bags together. Thank you. Happy Holidays for our family to yours.

We loved attending the PIF event! My toddler girls and I made get well cards for sick kids in the hospital & read a story about being in the hospital. I loved how it was aimed towards toddlers and helped teach them about giving and helping others while letting them play games and do crafts as well. We will definitely be attending another event!

We love Play it Forward Kids. We attended when it fits in our schedule but it’s always fun and our kids get so much out of it. I’m happy we have something so local that my kids can be a part of.
