Sarah Porter, Director of Innovative Philanthropy for Hope for Haiti, turned this virtual reality experience, running from zombies, into a question. If it feels this real and has this much impact, what could it do on the social side of things?
Sarah joined Better Worlds Host Paul Muts to talk about Hope for Haiti's first Virtual Reality project and experiential app that was modeled off of a partner school in rural Haiti.
Sarah has created partnerships with the NFT community and launched numerous NFT Auctions to support earthquake response in Haiti. As a Director of Development and Partnerships, Sarah’s got her start as a volunteer in the Peace Corp., and currently serves as Board President of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of New York City. Her strengths are in Policy & Advocacy, Gender Issues, Human Rights, Community Organizing, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and Corporate Philanthropy. She has a Masters in International Affairs from Brooklyn College. As a fundraiser seeking new opportunities for innovative tools, Sarah turned to the virtual world and Web 3 envisioning an experience where potential funders could meet students inside a virtual Haitian classroom and nonprofits could work together to create an impact metaverse.
