Starlight Children's Foundation: Starlight Immersive Adventures
Launching in February, 2018, Starlight Immersive Adventures is a groundbreaking program designed to entertain, educate and inspire hospitalized kids across the US through stimulating immersive experiences that transport children from the hospital to any place in the world – or beyond – through the magic of virtual reality. Delivered to Starlight’s network of 750+ pediatric partners through its proprietary program distribution model, Starlight VR will offer equipment and content geared toward entertainment and distraction for kids, and will become the go-to VR/AR solution for pediatric care providers.
About the Partners
Starlight Children's Foundation is a nonprofit organization that brings joy and comfort to hospitalized children and their families. For 35 years, Starlight programs have brought smiles to more than 60 million critically, chronically, and terminally ill children in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Starlight Immersive Adventures will extend that mission using Daydream's immersive technologies.
We’re excited to launch Starlight Immersive and harness the power of virtual reality to entertain, educate and inspire hospitalized kids when and where they need it most.Chris Helfrich - CEO, Starlight Children’s Foundation
