Giving back is MAGICAL.  Giving back at Magical Bridge is beyond MAGICAL…..

We’re continually asked about ways to volunteer at Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto, and have now set up a structured program to engage with us and give back in a profound and beautiful way.  In partnership with our neighbors and friends at Abilities United, Magical Bridge Foundation is seeking Bay Area companies, foundations, and community groups to experience the joy and happiness of giving back right on the playground.

Organized by Magical Bridge Foundation, we will partner your team (10-20 persons) with those leading the children and adult programs at Abilities United .  For two hours, your team will come out to the playground and engage with this community through music, arts and craft projects, and other activities.

Teams from VMWare, Intuit, Box, The Boys Charity League, The Girls Charity League, and many Girl Scout Troops have already kicked off this program with hours of entertainment and engagement, and it has been met with pure happiness and joy.

The Goal:  Get out of the office for a few hours and engage with kids and adults receiving services at Abilities United.  Be a friend. Model kind and compassionate behaviors. Have fun and realize that YOU can make a positive and powerful difference.  At Magical Bridge, we like to say, “It ALL starts on the playground”.  With your help, we can do amazing things together!

Possible activities to consider:

  • Singing, dancing, and playing a musical instrument(s) on the Magical Bridge community stage
  • Arts and crafts projects
  • Cookie decorating
  • Face painting
  • Sponsor Animal Assisted Happiness barnyard friends to join you on the playground, bringing happiness and smiles to everyone’s day!
  • Sponsor family-friendly musicians to perform on our stage (We have a list of family-friendly musicians familiar with our playground and community).
