The ten best, most heavenly, murals that our child-artists create, will become the building blocks for VR HEAVEN.

By harnessing the genius of the industry’s giants and leveraging the best technologies for 3D CONVERSION and 360 CAPTURE, we'll bring HEAVEN closer to reality.

It will be educational and entertaining, a therapeutic journey, a transformative experience that engages and benefits millions of children worldwide.

As a therapeutic journey or a transformative experience, VR Heaven can benefit a few million or potentially hundreds of millions worldwide.

VR Heaven will:

- Bring hope to some of the 48,000 youth in                   juvenile detention
- Enhance palliative care in nursing homes
- Bring a joyful activity to children's hospitals
- Facilitate interfaith discussion in schools or                  colleges

We can all learn from the children of the world and realize that our next generation has the passion, creativity and empathy to shape the future and build a better world. - Vice Admiral John P. Currier, United States Coast Guard
