Your Donation will Open New Worlds & Change Families Lives

Now that Genesis Eco Fund is able to accept donations online via PayPal, we eagerly announce one of our first fundraising campaigns to raise money to help a special-needs home/school for Autism Spectrum Disorder children to be able to acquire an indoor ecosystem. (Location/School TBD).

Nature is used extensively as a therapy for ASD. Not only are ecosystems engines for purifying indoor environments, they also fill the space with the soothing, stimulating colours and sounds of nature. Last but not least, they change the energy of a space; this, we feel, is why nature has been shown to have such a profound impact on individuals suffering from ASD.

Genesis is eager to conduct real-world research to determine the impact of high-order indoor ecosystems on the lucidity of children suffering from autism-spectrum disorders. The research will be carried out under the supervision of Genesis working in conjunction with an Academic Institutional Partner. (also TBD).

Upon successful funding of this campaign, Genesis Eco Fund will award funding for an ecosystem to the Special Needs Home Partner.  Said ecosystem will be made available to the centre at cost courtesy of PeapodLife (a $40K value).  PeapodLife’s parent company, Wo-Built, Inc., will provide the installation.

Additional funding may be required for materials (i.e. monitoring equipment, computers and other equipment) required for research. We hope one or more foundations dedicated to the study of Autism Spectrum Disorders will step up to the plate, together with an Academic Institution interested in participating in the research project.
