"Beachballs41+All was a simple intervention that tried its best to pretend not to be anintervention. Through the charitable status of Toronto-based performance company Mammalian Diving Reflex (MDR), 400 inflatable pool toys were donated from Liz and Rennie's No Frills to Alexandra Pool's Wacky Fun Day.
