Creative Mornings | Kirby Brown
September 2, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Kirby has made his career in tourism by being a bit of turnaround guy until recently. Now the GM of the popular new Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, BC that has changed into being a ‘turn it up’ guy. And, for the last 9 years, he and his friend Keith Reynolds have been spending every spare moment bringing play to kids in some of the worlds most chronically conflict ridden areas. Playground Builders is as grassroots as a charity gets. The guys do most of their work at Keiths’ kitchen table in Whistler, BC where they hand write thank you cards and argue over Skype with gravel suppliers in places like Baghdad, Iraq and Kabul, Afghanistan trying to shave cents off the cost of construction. It’s not about being cheap. It’s about spending every single dollar donated on building as many safe areas for kids to play as possible. And they’re just getting ready to ramp it up.
