My Sky is Falling – story and code evoking empathy

My Sky Is Falling is an immersive storyworld that aims to raise awareness about the challenges American foster children face before they age out of the foster care system. It is a purposeful storytelling open design made with Columbia University, Orange Duffle Bag Initiative and the Harmony Institute. Released under a Creative Commons sharealike, non-commercial license, My Sky is Falling is available to those wishing to engage in purposeful storytelling and social good. The framework of the project is open and is intended to be shared and remixed.

Elements of the storyline for My Sky is Falling were drawn from the life of Lydia Joyner. Lydia sits down with Thinkr to tell her amazing and heartbreaking story.
