Second Life builder and creator, Failed Inventor, has taken his virtual building skills and created a real life concept that can help hundreds of children each year.
Zoobits are wooden puzzles that encourage children with learning difficulties, autism and other disabilities to get creative and learn problem solving skills in a new and fun way.
Inspired by his real life volunteering work for a children’s hippotherapy program where he saw that the therapists needed better tools to help the children, Failed Inventor (Cody Rauh in real life) has launched a ‘Kickstarter’ appeal to raise funds to make this much needed project a reality.
“These puzzles will be donated to a therapy program to help kids with special needs,” says Failed Inventor. “The awesome thing about this project is that it has the potential to expand worldwide. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by learning difficulties. It’s a worldwide issue. These puzzles could help so many children!”
If you would like to help a Second Life resident make a positive difference to the lives of real life children, please consider either donating some Linden dollars or buying one of the limited edition SL ‘Zoobit’ puzzles!
You can also attend a special SL fundraising concert on Friday 12th July from 12-2PM SLT with guest artists Obeloinkment Wrigglesworth and DJ Evil Laa.
