Build Some Fun: Facebook fans fund a playground for Afghanistan

Children are running out of safe places to play in Afghanistan, and we're asking ChildFund's Facebook fans to take action.

As part of ChildFund's Facebook welcome page, we've launched a project to fund a new playground in a rural Afghanistan village. 

Imagine the smiles on the children's faces when a barren field becomes a fun gathering place, complete with a slide, swing, see-saw and jungle gym. The new community playground will serve approximately 400 children from 150 families.

Whether Facebook fans have $10, $20 or $100 to contribute to the $3,575 project goal, these individual gifts become part of a unified effort to make a tangible difference for children whose lives have been upended by war.

Given the great conversations about child sponsorship happening on ChildFund's Facebook wall every day, we're excited to offer fans an opportunity to engage more fully in ChildFund's work around the world.

Won't you join us on Facebook and help build some fun?
