Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris Lends His Voice to Children’s App “The Big Tree”
Chris has given his voice to a new children’s app that uses narratives and games to teach young children problem solving strategies and calming techniques.
The Australian Childhood Foundation launched the new BIG TREE APP, which also features the voices of his mother, Leonie Hemsworth, and Nadine Garner.
The app was originally developed for children suffering from trauma, but is appropriate for all children under eight years of age.
“Research tells us that all children need a strong sense of belonging and connection with carers and family to develop important regulation as they grow up, Australian Childhood Foundation CEO Dr Joe Tucci said. “The central stories about trust, respect and love show children that challenges can be overcome and that seeking out people who care about you when you are unhappy, stressed or confused can help you feel calmer.”
The app incorporates four core narratives featuring four main characters: Morten the Monster (voice of Chris Hemsworth), Ellen the Caterpillar (voice of Leonie Hemsworth), Ollie the Monkey (voice of Chris Hemsworth) and Sleepy Susan the Cat (voice of Nadine Garner).
Each of the characters helps children to consider the emotions and thoughts associated with challenges that come to be resolved through the support of friends.
The app even teaches young children breathing relaxation techniques and has playful activities that can be shared with parents of carers. (Source)
Actors Chris Hemsworth, Diego Luna, Nashla Bogaer and pro surfer Ramon Navarro teamed up for an unconventional beer ad. The four celebrities joined Corona and Parley AIR in their newest long-term initiative to end plastic pollution, which is detrimental to the world’s oceans.
The two companies plan to “protect 100 Islands by 2020 starting in six key regions in different parts of the world – Mexico, Maldives, Australia, Chile, Italy and Dominican Republic,” as they announced in a statement. In the next three years, they intend to have cleaner oceans and beaches.
The four celebrities shared social media posts in support of their new partnership and also starred in the powerful video released by Corona x Parley.
“When you picture beautiful islands and other beach destinations, you imagine them in their pristine state with clear blue waters, but then you see the problem up close and you realize that we are destroying paradise through our careless use of plastic,” said Luna. I’m particularly proud to be affiliated with a program that is not only committed to protecting beaches around the world, but also in my homeland Mexico.”
Hemsworth added, “I’ve spent a large part of my life in and around the ocean, it’s where a lot of my happiest memories came from. If I had anxieties or worries, I’d head to the ocean and it was always the place where I could reset and be 100% present. I want to inspire people to find a solution and protect the world’s oceans so future generations can enjoy them like I do.”
