Proud Sponsor of Goodwill Caravan Event with Snapchat Mixed Reality Experience15 November 2022
We are delighted to have provided a Snapchat Mixed Reality experience for Goodwill Caravan, a charity supporting refugee communities.
Goodwill Caravan is a non-profit humanitarian charity that supports refugee protection projects including emergency aid distribution, sheltering the most vulnerable, and legal and medical support for refugees in the UK and Greece. The charity empowers the refugees it supports by giving them the skills they need to become fully functional members of their new society. This helps also to alleviate the burden on already overstretched public services in host nations such as Greece.
Run by Hanan Ashegh, who works tirelessly for the charity, Goodwill Caravan is absolutely inspiring.
We were asked to support Goodwill Caravan at its annual Fundraising Dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel in London. The charity wanted to show its work in an innovative way that would inspire conversation and enable simple sharing of its work.
Taking videos produced by the charity of two important projects, we created an exciting Snapchat experience which was launched from QR codes on cards at the dinner.
Arishi were credited as sponsors at the dinner, as can be seen in the short video below.
Arishi Founder & Managing Director, Andrew Elia comments, “There are very few events that we attend that move us in our hearts the way Goodwill Caravan did this evening. The attendance of many people, especially children, who have been helped by the charity was a direct testament to the success of its endeavours. The story of the young boy stranded in Greece after escaping Syria when his parents were shot and killed was extremely hard to hear. Without the work of Goodwill Caravan, and the money it spent on legal assistance, he might not have had the chance to unite with his extended family in the UK. We are glad that our technology can help to explain the work of this excellent charity. Congratulations to Ms Ashegh and the incredible team at Goodwill Caravan.”
Congratulations to Goodwill Caravan for raising over £100,000 in donations at the dinner and providing further education for us all on this important and moving subject.
