Play Unplugged Information For Businesses

PACE will be participating with the PACE Partner HUB sponsored Play Unplugged program summer 2018.

Businesses – this is your opportunity to help get kids away from electronics and out and about! Join us!

Play Unplugged helps kids PLAY. It does so by encouraging active lifestyles and promoting healthy activities. What makes this program so effective? Simply put, it gives bored kids and busy parents something to do all summer long, it gives participants something tangible to collect, but most importantly it involves the entire community. Imagine a program that’s not only fun and sustainable, but provides a boost to your local economy while being self-sufficient as well as politically neutral.

Play Unplugged is all about building a symbiotic relationship between kids, parents and local businesses. This relationship creates an incentive for all to participate in the program as one motivates the other.

It begins with kids who are motivated by the incentive of a highly collectable reward called a Brag Badge. This reward helps solve the “I’m bored” problem between kids and parents. In turn, this provides incentive for parents to help kids receive the reward by taking them to participating local businesses. Local businesses are incentivized by the opportunity of meeting potential new clients therefore giving them the desire to participate in the program.

Brag Badges are purchased by local businesses who decide what activity or challenge they wish to sponsor. The more fun and exciting the activity, the greater number of participants will come to redeem the tag. In turn, the more exposure and foot traffic for the local business.

  • Enough Brag Badges all summer long
