We believe that video games don’t have to promote violence and aggression. That they can touch on important social issues and highlight positive values. That a game like all other media, can be both fun a challenging, open our eyes to struggle and spread kindness, empathy and awareness and tell inspiring stories. We are a 501(c)3 public charity and we need your help.
We want to move our players by creating engaging video games with a heart. Just like movies and tv shows video games can be smart, edgy and feature relatable characters without being preachy. But we need your help.
It’s our philosophy that games can change how people think and feel about serious social problems. And we treat our mission of service very seriously. To us, humanity is at the core of what we do.
That’s why we rely on community support. Florida Disability Access and Awareness Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and your donations are tax deductible.
Our team already includes interns and volunteers that have faced struggles in their life: wheelchair users, deaf and hard of hearing, cancer survivors, and many others. We channel our experiences into a piece of meaningful work. There’s a reason for all we do. As we work together, we learn about each other’s perspectives. This is what change means to us: it always starts with passion.
As our project grows, so do our needs. You can help us get to the next stage. Please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven’t heard about us, it’s ok. You will.
Florida Disability Access and Awareness Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that does things differently. We want to share our vision for an inclusive society where physical and intellectual challenges never overshadow the strength of the human spirit. We want to use the power of media to promote understanding and empathy.
We want to take on stereotypes and negativity through optimism and positive storytelling. To keep with the times, we develop new technologies and video projects. The medium is changing but the human story at its core will always remain.
Our team members want to use the same type of experiences they gained in the commercial sector- developing video games, interactive applications and video productions- to change the way people see, think and feel about disability and to help the idea of charity advance in an impactful way in the 21st century.
We are headquartered in Florida, but the problems we tackle are universal. Spread throughout the world, working with experts passionate to volunteer, interns eager to learn and veterans, we look for new ways to highlight and empower disability communities around the globe. This is the future and we know how to build it.
