Roblox’s ‘Build A Pal’ Initiative: Transforming Digital Play into Philanthropy and Community Building

Social entrepreneur Lian Pham has launched a philanthropic initiative on the Roblox platform, MetaHug’s “Build A Pal”. The project uses Roblox’s virtual world to promote kindness, community-building, and philanthropy among young users.

Participants in the project can give a “Pal” to others, symbolizing an act of kindness. The team behind “Build A Pal”, aged 13 to 25, aims to demonstrate how acts of giving can extend from the real world into the digital realm, fostering empathy, collaboration, and digital citizenship.
