As you know, the Creative Play Place is making a difference every day by providing a place for children and their families to play in an environment that develops the whole child. Your generous support makes a meaningful difference to children and families in the Saint Peter Area.
On November 14, Minnesota’s Give to the Max Day, your gift may help us win an extra $1,000 for our work in the community.
Every gift made on November 14 helps our chances of winning a $1,000 Golden Ticket! By partnering with GiveMN, an online giving website for Minnesota nonprofits, the Creative Play Place will have 25 chances to maximize your gift on Give to the Max Day! You can donate anytime though the “Donate Now” link on our website.
Here’s the really exciting part: At the end of Give to the Max Day, one donation from across Minnesota will be randomly selected for a $10,000 Super-sized Golden Ticket!
The more gifts we receive online on November 14, the more our chances increase to receive that magical Golden Ticket! All gifts you make to the Creative Play Place on November 14 will increase our impact by allowing us to support our mission “to foster the development of the whole child through play, movement and the arts to promote healthy lifestyles, enhance literacy, and strengthen the parent-child bond.”
Follow us on Facebook so you can share in the excitement of the giving day and remember to give on November 14.

P.S. Remember: At the end of Give to the Max Day, one donation from across Minnesota will be randomly selected for a $10,000 Super-sized Golden Ticket! Your gift helps increase our odds on November 14!
