Posted December 18, 2017 07:30:48 A new initiative called “The University of Winnipeg” is trying to help the city and university communities by offering $10,000 for any student to donate money to a warframe or other community that has suffered a loss.
Warframe, which was founded by former university students at the time, started with the mission to bring back the “feel” of a warzone.
Its goal was to bring the experience of war to the masses, said Josh Haskins, co-founder and chief executive officer of The University of Wabash.
“It’s the only place you can go and feel like you are there,” he said.
“The only way you can be part of that war is to do that, and we are hoping that by bringing warframes to the forefront of the war community that this will make it easier for people to participate in the community and be a part of it.”
“The University Of Winnipeg” aims to make this effort possible by giving $10k to any student that has lost a family member, friend or co-worker in the line of duty.
The $10K donation will go to a program run by the University’s Faculty of Education, Faculty of Science and Technology, and The University’s War Room.
Haskins said they are hoping to raise $25,000 by the end of the year.
“The goal is to raise a couple of thousand dollars for the university in the next few months,” he explained.
“But we also want to make sure that every student that does this will have a unique piece of history that is a unique addition to the warframe collection.”
The War Room was launched by Haskens and co-founders Jason Fenton and Kyle Rennie back in 2016.
It has since grown to include more than 20 individuals and their families, as well as the War Room’s warframes.
Hassan Farouk, the War Team Leader for The University Of Manitoba, said he’s excited to see the war team’s efforts in helping others.
“I am proud of them for their commitment to bring together the entire war community,” he told Global News.
“We are a global community and we all need to support each other, especially our veterans.”
As we continue to support our veterans and the veterans of war through these initiatives, I’m excited to work with our alumni to make our war team stronger.
“The team will be working on bringing the war to war in the new year, with the goal of bringing the “world’s largest and most powerful warframe” to the university.”
This warframe is the pinnacle of warframe technology, and the war room is dedicated to making it happen,” Haskkins said.”
Warframes are a beautiful and unique tool that are so incredibly powerful in the hands of a soldier, so I am really excited to be a team member on the team.
“The war team will use the proceeds from their warframe donations to support a number of different initiatives, including a memorial service for those who lost loved ones in war, to increase awareness of the mental health impact of war, and to support student initiatives.
