Smarter video games. Better world.
Video Games with heart. Not aggression.
As a Florida- based nonprofit we watched the coverage of the recent shootings in the media. The video game tournament in Orlando is only a relatively short drive from our headquarters. Many of our team members are gamers, so it could have been one of us. Video Games often come up in the media as a concern, when it comes to the effect they have on the minds on mind people. News stations like to link some of these events to the aggression and violence of the virtual world.
We thought long and hard about how we can make this better. Video Games are here to stay but we can make them smarter. We’ve decided to work with psychologists and writers to develop video games that enrich rather than harm and that promote positive values. To show that video games don’t have to be violent and aggressive to be fun, and don’t have to be boring to have a positive message. That it’s a medium like any other that we can use for good. But we need your help.
Florida Disability Access and Awareness Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit talks about the importance of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the ways it affects lives of those with limited mobility and intellectual challenges. Through innovative projects like video games, apps and documentaries we promote inclusion in the modern, connected world. A world more accessible for those in a wheelchair, a world kinder to veterans, respectful to those with limited and no vision of hearing – a world in awe of the human spirit. Disability rights- the modern way!
We believe that multimedia can change how people think and feel about these serious problems. And we treat our mission of service very seriously.
That’s why we rely on community support. Please donate if you can. Florida Disability Access and Awareness Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and your donations are tax deductible.
Our key message is that everybody has something they struggle with, although some issues are more visible than others. We want our projects to turn into an educational program where people with disabilities can acquire skills to succeed in the competitive software, media and gaming industry while working on a project that talks about their community. And the same time, noting the rise of empathy in gaming we think it’s a more powerful medium allowing users to experience what wounded veterans go through from the safety of their couch.
Our team already includes interns and volunteers that have faced struggles in their lives. For some it’s outside of disability world, but we all relate to the human struggle. 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. A few dollars can make all the difference.
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.
