World's First Large-Scale VR for Good Campaign

Donation protected
America has reached Peak 65, as a record number of Baby Boomers turn 65 in 2024. This demographic shift coincides with a rapid decline in workers available to meet this demand. Consequently, our current senior living loneliness crisis will accelerate over the next decade as we have fewer employees to care for seniors.

Virtual Reality is quickly becoming validated as a powerful new tool to help seniors feel connected to loved ones, nature, and their place of worship.

San Diego 4.0 will continue validating VR as a new technology to support isolated seniors and patients with early dementia.

WIN #1: Our project seeks to train the first 100 people in creating and safely delivering VR experiences to support seniors, hospital patients, hospice patients, and students.
WIN #2: We will provide hundreds of VR Experiences to support residents' feelings of love, connection, and empowerment.
WIN #3: We will duplicate this campaign in other locations nationwide.

CREATE: We will create hundreds of immersive 360 videos of local parks, trails, beaches, and places of worship.
DELIVER: We will donate these immersive videos to San Diego senior living organizations for FREE.
RESEARCH: Our team will research VR and its support for isolated seniors and early dementia patients.

San Diego 4.0 will launch hyper-local campaigns to complete this community project. Our first three cities include El Cajon, Santee, and La Mesa.

San Diego 4.0 is the World's First Large-Scale VR For Good community project. We will work with dozens of local cities, San Diego County, Chambers of Commerce, senior living organizations, local media, technology companies, and hundreds of individuals.

Your support is vital in making this first-in-the-world campaign a reality. Let's work together to use our new tools for the good of our community. Please support our mission by choosing your level of contribution. To receive your gift, please email us through GoFundMe. For security purposes, GoFundMe does not provide us with your email.

This campaign is NOT a non-profit activity at this point. However, this may change in the future as other projects emerge in the community with recognized non-profits. The money raised will be used to record, edit, and deliver these immersive 360 videos.
