The heart of PurposePlay is relationship and community. It began with a chance to host some kids from the Imani Milele Children's Choir. We weren't sure what to expect, but couldn't have planned for the ride it was going to take us on! After three days with these kids, we decided that we had to go to Uganda. Within 4 months, we found ourselves on a plane that was headed for Africa. Again, we weren't sure what to expect, but couldn't have dreamed the results of this trip. As we traveled from learning center to learning center, we knew that something had to be done to help. So we came up with PurposePlay! A company that takes our virtual and changes people's reality. As a community...we build communities...that build communities. We are excited to help change lives as a result of our lives being changed. PurposePlay...Virtual to Reality!
