Celebrity blogger and entrepreneur Karen Civil just turned 30 and she decided to celebrate it by giving back.

Civil who comes from a Haitian background spent her 30th birthday by breaking ground on the Live Civil Playground in Prodev-operated school Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje in Village de la Renaissance in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

With a $41,000 donation from Civil and the help of Sow a Seed, construction of the new playground started this past weekend.

In addition to thanking Sow a Seed for their contributions to the project, Civil also thanked Nick Cannon and Project Canvas for donating canvas sneakers to the students in an effort to help them express their artistic side.

Check out a little video of the groundbreaking and the kids show their inner Picasso with their Project Canvas sneakers.
