Life-Changing Experiences for People who need Most

Hi. My name is Drew Farion and I will stop at nothing to grant wishes, especially for people who suffer from severe health or mobility limitations that bar them from adventures that others might take for granted.

My goal is to raise $1 million or more before August, 2022 to purchase 1000 VR goggles for children and youth who have learning disabilities, physical disabilities or critical illness. We will donate VR goggles to associations that support our cause.

I am a Victoria, B.C. based entrepreneur who will harness the power of Virtual Reality goggles to make anything possible. A paraplegic teenager can salsa dance in Spain or ski the Swiss Alps. A twelve-year-old burn victim can receive critical acclaim as she walks the fashion runways in Paris. A critically ill five-year-old can ride a roller-coaster. A child with a learning disability can learn to scuba dive in Greece. And my daughter, who has Down Syndrome, can learn to play classical guitar.

Through my research and in conversations with Make-A-Wish Canada, Sick Kids and BC Hospitals, I have learned that they are NOT granting any travel wishes. So my Higher Purpose is simply to bring Europe to them... through VR, whether in their schools, homes, wheelchairs or hospital beds.

To make this dream become reality I have assembled a first-rate international film crew and created a new production media company called Dream On Films. Starting Sept 2022, his team will embark on their first film project called the 'The Silver Surfer Euro-Tour' to create a VR video documentary series showcasing the unique array of cultures, bucket-list destinations and the most compelling sights, festivals and sporting events the continent has to offer.

While on this once-in-a-lifetime journey, we will seek to shine a light from Finland to Malta, Valencia to Basel, Berlin to Budapest. and showcase the magnitude of culture that blossoms from one country to the next. We will forever look for the road less travelled in search of the most scenic vistas, viewpoints and landscapes that this continent has to offer.

The resulting content produced from this documentary will be like having a library card accessible 24/7 to either play VR video games, learn to cook with a French chef or live vicariously to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime European adventure with us. 

As for my higher purpose, I envision giving back to society as  I relate to watching sports. "Sports are a distraction that often take my mind off something I do not want to deal with and or think about. "Imagine if we can provide that outlet to escape the heavy burdens that must be carried? I want to be a 'ray in the rainbow' that takes them to a pot of golden exploration, wonder and discovery." 

Read the article written by Molly Fosco entitled: 'VR Gives Terminally Ill Children the Experience of a Lifetime" to quantify and quality the noble nature of this crusade to see if bringing memorable moments of Europe back to kids, teenagers and parents across Canada, US and eventually the world over. ... is worthwhile

 Imagine if every hospital had a few pairs of VR goggles that kids could use. This gift is sustainable. Not granting one wish for one day 
but offering a 24/7 'library card' to the meta-verse.

The result of our Euro-Tour will be a library of documentary content, a ray of sunshine to take people's minds off their suffering. People living with heavy burdens can live vicariously through us and enjoy once-in-a-lifetime European adventures.

As a true citizen of this world, I call upon my brother and sisters to join me in this Higher Purpose. My reason for starting this Go Fund Me Page is to solicit financial support for our film crew to go to Europe and create a 12-month video documentary series in Virtual Reality and bring back the sights, sounds and experiences to sick and disabled kids.

Special Note: Those who wish to make larger donations  of $1000 or more will receive a charitable/society status tax receipt.
