How we use play for good.

We Disarm Global Issues and Inspire Social Invention

There are not enough people trying to creatively address the social issues facing the global community. The fewer people we have trying to address our problems in unique ways, the less likely we will be able to solve them. 

According to a 2013 Gallup Poll, over 83% of households in the United States donated to charity and 65% spent time volunteering. This data suggests that people care about social issues. So why aren't more people engaged in social invention?

We've isolated two key factors:

1. People do not know about the problems we are facing

2. People do not believe their unique thoughts, words or actions have value

We want to get as many people to believe they can create something that matters. By educating the global community, we will raise awareness of social issues and expand the number of people working towards solutions. With our guidance and specialized curriculum, we will help people around the world to develop their social invention products.
