STARLIGHT CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION LAUNCHES STARLIGHT VIRTUAL REALITY INITIATIVE

FOUNDING SPONSOR, STAR WARS: FORCE FOR CHANGE, COLLABORATES ON NEW TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM POWERED BY GOOGLE



ORLANDO, Florida (April 12, 2017) – Starlight Children’s Foundation, a leading charity for 35 years, today announces the launch of Starlight Virtual Reality as a groundbreaking new program that will entertain, educate and inspire the imagination of thousands of hospitalized young patients across the US. Star Wars: Force for Change is the program’s Founding Sponsor with additional funding from Niagara Cares and VR technology powered by Google. The program will roll out in late 2017 and Starlight will start distributing the program to Starlight’s network of children’s hospitals and other health facilities across the US.
Imagine being stuck in the hospital for days, weeks or even months. Now imagine transforming into a Star Wars character and being transported to a galaxy far, far away using the magic of virtual reality. This experience, and many others powered by Google, will soon be possible thanks to Star Wars: Force for Change, an initiative from Lucasfilm that harnesses the power of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world. Lucasfilm’s parent organization, The Walt Disney Company, is a longtime supporter of children’s hospitals and of Starlight Children’s Foundation.
