The Variety house in the virtual world of Oville will illustrate the many challenges facing children with special needs and will encourage empathy for, and understanding of these challenges.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 25, 2011
Variety International the Children’s Charity with head offices in Los Angeles California has partnered with Cackleberries Entertainment Inc. of Coquitlam, British Columbia. Through this partnership Cackleberries will develop “Variety House” within their virtual world of Oville, a place where education and entertainment co-exist.
The aim of this partnership is to promote Variety’s message, increase overall awareness of children’s special needs issues and to expand the donation base for Variety Tents (chapters) around the world.
In Oville, children ages 3 to 7 develop their own avatars, which are engagingly interactive and kick start a child’s creativity. Children participate in a growing, living world, with houses, streets and communities that evolve around them. The Variety house in the virtual world of Oville will illustrate the many challenges facing children with special needs and will encourage empathy for, and understanding of these challenges. Teaching all children as early as possible about the differences we share will help them understand that we also share similarities. Variety House will reinforce positive attitudes towards kids with special needs.
Variety assists thousands of special needs children and their families each year through a number of programs and individual grants. One of the core targets for Variety funding is mobility and this partnership with Cackleberries will increase awareness and raise funding for children with mobility problems.
Variety chose to partner with Cackleberries as they met the need to provide a safe, secure and educational online place for children to learn and play, free from advertising and conspicuous consumerism.
