Charity as a use case for Virtual Reality

All Steem/Steem Power from this post will be donated to the East Africa Food Crisis Appeal

A few nights ago I found myself at the Rewind VRLO exhibition at Central Saint Martins art college in London.

After spending some time looking at the different stories and games, I was drawn to Ayan's Journey. A story about children growing up in one of the hardest places to live on Earth; Somalia.

The piece is only 3 minutes long but is incredibly hard-hitting. You come face to face with stick-thin children​ ​in the middle of a desert strewn with animal carcasses.

Virtual Reality is already disrupting the travel market with Thomas Cook showing revenues on their New York holidays increased by 190% when implementing VR ... is charity the next big use case?

Got my full UV and resteemed too, technology and philanthropy are two of my favourite subjects!

thank you!

I donate my birthday every year to charity and want to do the same for xmas, if anyone else is in the same boat and interested in collaborating for a campaign to raise money for an effective charity, reply here.

Yeah that would be a great Idea! I hope I will have more followers on christmas! But which charity are you thinking to support?

Great Idea! Are you on ? so that we can talk more precisely how we will make it ? Maybe we should make more than one post.. so that we can collect more money?

Yes - thisisbenbrick on rocket chat.

ok I will contact you there

It's good to see there are still good people in the world <3

Of course! The good guys are more in this world!

So sad. I hope some of the wealth made through crypto brings poverty and hunger to an end in every country. No child should ever go hungry... definitely not with the current level of wealth inherent in the world.

Best idea! This is a good example for showing the whole potential from steemit to everybody! 100% Upvote from me!

heart melts if we see their situation. your cause is noble. hats off to you. i upvoted and resteemed it. video explains how bad the situation is.
i red recently that, " Somalia has untapped reserves of numerous natural resources, including uranium, iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt and natural gas. Due to its proximity to the oil-rich Gulf Arab states such as Saudi Arabia and Yemen, the nation is also believed to contain substantial unexploited reserves of oil." but who is going to take their fate seriously???
good post with real humanity

experiences is where it's at. interactive all the best combined with 'in-time' cryptocurrency involvement sounds even better. best of luck with everything you are working on - 100% upvoted.

It's nice when there are people like you
