They say you’re as good as the company you keep, and at our PLACE we get to hang out with some of the coolest, most talented people. They work hard to improve the world around them – plus believe in the strength of #kidpower – and we just can’t keep them to ourselves! Get to know our friends as we share their stories and positive vibe.
BEHIND THE SCENES WITH BILL & OUR CRITTER FRIENDS!
We’re lucky enough to hang out with a lot of fun humans, but we LOVE hanging out with our animal friends the most. Every couple of photo shoots, we invite Bill the animal wrangler and his crazy crew of critters to help bring the season’s theme and messaging to life (literally!). And guess what’s even cooler? Not only are they rescue animals, but they’re famous, too – spot ’em in a theater or ad near you!
