We want to Hoop Bomb every playground and public green space in the inner-city in Memphis.

What better way than hula hoops to get people in the city, especially kids, to spend time being active and enjoying the outdoors together!

We'd like to cover every playground, park, and public green space in the city with Hoop Bombs so this city explodes with circles of fun and playful joy!

How can you help?

We would use the grant money to purchase supplies (tubing and decorative tapes) to make durable, creative, hand-crafted hula hoops for playgrounds, and to purchase hand made hoops from local independent hoop artisans. With $1000 we could provide at least 100 hoops and activate a hooper army to drop our hoop bombs on playgrounds, bus stops, vacant lots, and public green spaces in low income areas in urban Memphis.

Using our own volunteer time and money we have already made and dropped 12 hoops at the following locations:
4 at East Park
3 at Howse Park in Binghampton
3 at 760 Vance Ave. playground/bus stop
1 at Secret Sculpture Garden - 1095 Forrest Ave.
1 at Macon Homes Apartments on Claybrook

We have numerous other locations we'd absolutely love to drop more hoops at. We just need more money to make the hoops to make it happen!

I'd love to learn more about how you'll cover every playground, park and public green space with "Hoop Bombs." How will you use the NGA grant to realize this vision?
