Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

St. John Catholic Elementary School in Perth is a proud recipient of a 2010 Let Them Be Kids "Believe" Award! Every dollar raised by our community will be matched by Let Them Be Kids
to build a much needed playground at St. John's!

St. John’s School Pays it Forward for the Guatemala Stove Project

As part of the Let Them Be Kids protocol, all volunteers on St. John School's Build Day on Saturday, May 29, must have proper identification indicating that they have signed a liability waiver and are volunteering on site to help transform our playground. 

St. John's  Playground Committee has decided to use this opportunity to 'pay it forward' and buy hand-braided bracelets from a well-known Perth charitable foundation, the Guatamela Stove Project. The bracelets will be used on Build Day to help identify all our registered volunteers. We are very pleased to announce that by purchasing these bracelets, we have helped pay for a stove for a Guatemalan family! This will provide a family in Guatemala with a fuel-efficient, clean-burning stove, which should extend the life expectancy of family members by up to 15 years.
