LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, February 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- THE GIVING BACK FUND (GBF), celebrating 25 years of philanthropic empowerment, including 11 years of hosting its exclusive Super Bowl event BIG GAME BIG GIVE, which raises millions of critical dollars for worthy charities worldwide, is teaming up with Meta to launch GBF’s first ever philanthropic event in Horizon Worlds.

Facing another challenging year of Covid cancellations, GBF CEO Marc Pollick announced today that this year’s GBF Super Bowl event, BIG GAME BIG GIVE, will be held in virtual reality through the support of Meta.

Actor Rob Lowe says, “I’m really honored and excited to play a role in helping great organizations like The Giving Back Fund raise money for foundations that need our help now more than ever. But seriously, to host BIG GAME BIG GIVE in Horizon Worlds from my living room means I don’t even have to put on a tux.”

The 2022 BIG GAME BIG GIVE in the METAVERSE will include a red-carpet experience, avatar photo booth, and social impact theater. Following the VR experience there will also be a corresponding charity auction that lives on past the event.

GBF Founder and CEO, Marc Pollick stated, “The Giving Back Fund has been a pioneer in the high-profile philanthropic space since its inception in 1997. As a trailblazer in celebrity cause-related marketing beginning with Flutie Flakes, we are excited to now bring philanthropy to the virtual world. Although this isn't the Super Bowl event we originally imagined pre-COVID, it has the potential to be something MUCH BIGGER and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the opportunity to take philanthropic giving into Horizon Worlds with the help of Meta.”

Horizon Worlds is a social VR experience where you can create and explore together.
Although this exclusive event has limited capacity, there are many ways that anyone can play a role and make a positive impact and Give Back. This year, BIG GAME BIG GIVE has partnered with digital fundraising platform for the entertainment industry Fandiem.com to host exclusive sweepstakes and auctions.
