Play Me Out's COVID-19 Statement
Updated: Apr 16, 2020
On behalf of the Play Me Out team, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic around the world. As the mother of three children, a wife, and an entrepreneur now working from home, this pandemic has caused quite an imbalance in my life -- and I know that this is the case for millions of families around the world too.
While this pandemic has created a new reality for all of us, it also forces us to reflect on how easy it is for us to lose track of our own wellness while trying to cater to the needs of everything -- and everyone -- around us.
COVID-19 has caused us to question how we can simultaneously be spouses, parents, school teachers, and business people while still making time to do the things that make us who we are beyond those titles. But this is a question that comes up often in our day to day lives that we should address more often -- not just when we are forced to do so. That is why the mission of Play Me Out, which is to bring families better balance by giving parents more freetime while their children enjoy more structured playtime, is more important now than ever.
In light of the worldwide pandemic, we are pushing the 2020 opening date of our indoor playground back until further notice. In the meantime, we plan to do all that we can to support families who are facing this new reality with digital content, including our free handwashing activity guide which is now available for download.
We are also accepting contributions to our crowdfunding campaign at this time, which you can support by visiting bit.ly/ifundplaymeout. You can also support by helping us spread the word about our crowdfunding campaign on social media. We appreciate any contributions you can offer to help us support families in Los Angeles County when our doors officially open and we are all able to return to our normal way of living.
We thank you for your support!
