Worldwide Sources Kiwanis International Foundation
Worldwide Sources Kiwanis International Foundation
This multimillion dollar foundation provides grants to thousands of organizations worldwide aimed at bettering the lives of children. The Kiwanis International Foundation Board of Trustees meets officially three times per year. Grant requests from throughout the world are reviewed at these meetings. Because funds are limited and needs are great, priority is given to programs that are Kiwanis-family related, national or international in scope, serve young children, and are consistent with Kiwanis International objectives. Funding for these grants is made possible from the generous contributions to the Foundation’s Annual Club Gift Campaign and Kiwanis Children’s Fund, among other donations.

The Biggo Ovni
Today Dynamo Playgrounds is introducing our newest Biggo Swing: the Biggo Ovni
See it in action here:
As the newest addition to our revolutionary line of multi-user swings, this innovative swing will ensure a new flight of interactive play for users of all abilities.
Users can sit, stand or lie down while riding the large saucer-like seat all over through its full 360 degrees of exciting motion. Unlike a traditional tire swing, this unique motion and seat construction cradles the riders within the dish, providing a safe yet exhilarating experience.
Built with play value in mind, 1 to 4 users at a time can enjoy each seat on this ride that helps develop balance and equilibrium and promotes physical and social activity.
Information, spec sheets and drawings of the BIGGO OVNI are now ready to be downloaded from our Dynamo RepNET.
