“Download the free Time Machine App, spend time doing inspirational activities, and raise awareness for The Progeria Research Foundation!”
Your time is all you've got.
Time Machine wants to help you find ways to spend it doing things that inspire you. You'll be helping The Progeria Research Foundation expand our global awareness by doing inspirational challenges and sharing them with your friends. Each activity takes just minutes - minutes you "earn" that add up to the chance to win cool prizes**. Just download the free Time Machine app to get started!
The inspiration behind Time Machine came from the movie "Life According to Sam" and Sam Berns' TedX talk, "My Philosophy for a Happy Life". Sam's philosophy was to use time wisely and keep moving forward, focusing on the things he could do instead of those he couldn't.
The challenges you can complete in the Time Machine campaign for PRF include:
~Watching "My Philosophy for a Happy Life" (15 minutes earned)
~Writing your own Philosophy for a Happy Life and posting it on the PRF Facebook page (30 minutes earned)
~Watching "Life According to Sam" (100 minutes earned)
~Writing a letter to the you of the future or the past (15 min earned for each)
