Giver is a series about enterprising 6 - 9 year-old kids that work together with their community to reclaim and enhance their playground spaces. A group of 10 kids must decide on a new theme for their playground – choose what equipment to keep and what to scrap. What pieces to add and what murals to paint. They have to find out what their community wants – is it a sandbox, a garden, a pond, a dog park? On top of all that, did we mention, they only have 3 days to do it!!
Fortunately, the kids aren’t alone. Each episode will feature an enthusiastic team to assist them – an energetic host who happens to be a handy carpenter and a multi-talented artist. They work with the kids to see that their new playground vision is brought to fruition.
Every kid and every community is unique – “Giver” will provide a lasting, tangible display of how kids can contribute to their community in a way that’s interesting and exciting for them, while at the same time demonstrating that while it's better to give then to receive, it's also nice to get a brand new really awesome playground.
