How to Play

Can the much anticipated, possibly over-hyped, world-ending 2012 Mayan Apocalypse raise awareness for disaster-preparedness? Yes – so much so that we’ve made a fund-raising game around the much bally-hoo-ed Mayan End of the World.

Just log on (via Facebook or your Twitter account), choose your charity and match three-of-a-kind as you spin the Wheel of Destruction. When you match three destructors, you’ll see a wacky world-ending simulation and, more importantly, the good folks at WoD will make a donation to your chosen charity to help prepare for and relieve actual disasters.

How much money you raise for charity depends on what destructor you match three times:

Though we loathe to tempt Fate, we’re almost completely sure that the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse is a myth. But either way, play Wheel of Destruction and mankind will be better prepared for survival.

Note: you will only be allowed to play for charity once per day (from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm EST) but you can practice as much as you want. A total of $3,000 will be donated among the various charities on approximately December 28, 2012.

Mayan Apocalypse 2012

The countdown to the apocalypse is on. The ancient Mayan Long Count calendar allegedly marked as the end of an era that would reset the date to zero and signal the end of humanity. But will it?

The end of the world theories stem from a stone tablet discovered in the 1960s at the archaeological site of Tortuguero in the Gulf of Mexico state of Tabasco that describes the return of a Mayan god at the end of a 13th period.

"The Maya are viewed by many westerners as exotic folks that were supposed to have had some special, secret knowledge," said Mayan scholar Sven Gronemeyer.

The blogosphere exploded with more speculation when Mexico’s archaeology institute acknowledged on a second reference to December 21, 2012, on a brick found at other ruins. “Human beings seem to be attracted by apocalyptic ideas and always assume the worse,” Gronemeyer said.

Believers have taken the end-of-the-world fears to the Internet with hundreds of thousands of websites and blogs.

American Red Cross, Dayton Area Chapter

For over 130 years, the American Red Cross has been the nation's premier emergency response organization. As part of a worldwide movement that offers neutral humanitarian care to the victims of war, the American Red Cross distinguishes itself by also aiding victims of devastating natural disasters. Over the years, the organization has expanded its services, always with the aim of preventing and relieving suffering.

In addition to domestic disaster relief, the American Red Cross offers compassionate services in five other areas: community services that help the needy; support and comfort for military members and their families; the collection, processing and distribution of lifesaving blood and blood products; educational programs that promote health and safety; and international relief and development programs.

For more information about your local Red Cross visit dac.redcross.org.

RedRover

RedRover is a national nonprofit animal protection organization working to strengthen the bond between people and animals with a commitment to help, shelter and connect suffering animals with people who care.

RedRover accomplishes its mission to bring animals from crisis to care through a variety of programs, including emergency animal sheltering and disaster relief services, financial assistance for urgent veterinary care and humane education.

For more information on RedRover's programs, visit www.redrover.org.

Being Prepared for the End of the World

Kit it. Plan it. Know it.

It’s important to prepare for possible disasters and other emergencies. Natural and human caused disasters can strike suddenly, at any time and anywhere. There are actions everyone can take that can help make a difference…

The End is Here Checklist:

  • I know what emergencies or disasters are most likely to occur in my community.
  • I have a family disaster plan and have practiced it.
  • I have an emergency preparedness kit.
  • At least one member of my household is trained in first aid and CPR/AED.
  • I have taken action to help my community prepare.

At a minimum, have the basic supplies listed below.

Keep supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency preparedness kit for use at home or to evacuate.

  • Water – one gallon per person per day
  • Food – non-perishable
  • Flashlight
  • Radio
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications
  • Multipurpose tool
  • Hygiene items
  • Copies of personal documents (list of medications and medical info, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)
  • Cell phone with chargers
  • Emergency contacts
  • Extra cash
  • Emergency blanket
  • Map(s) of the area

Consider the needs of all family members and add supplies to your kit. Suggested items to help meet additional needs are:

  • Medical supplies
  • Baby supplies
  • Games and activities
  • Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
  • Two-way radios
  • Extra set of keys
  • Manual can opener

Additional supplies to keep at home or in your kit based on the types of disasters common to your area:

  • Whistle
  • N95 or surgical masks
  • Matches
  • Rain gear
  • Towels
  • Work gloves
  • Tools/supplies secure home
  • Extra clothing
  • Plastic sheeting
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Household liquid bleach
  • Entertainment items
  • Blankets or sleeping bags

Plan what to do in case you are separated during an emergency.

Choose two places to meet:

  • Right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency.
  • Outside your neighborhood, incase you cannot return home or are asked to evacuate.

Plan what to do if you have to evacuate.

Decide where you would go and the route you would take to get there. Plan ahead for your pets. Keep a phone list of pet-friendly hotels/motels and animal shelters that are along your evacuation routes.

What is ICE?

In Case of Emergency – contact in your cell phone. When a patient who is unconscious or unable to speak comes into the ER, hospitals worldwide look for their ICE contact to locate their next of kin.

Learn what disasters or emergencies may occur in your area.

Events can range from those affecting only you and your family, like a home fire or medical emergency, to those affecting your entire community, like an earthquake or flood. Identify how local authorities will notify you during a disaster and how you will get information, whether through local radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio stations or channels.

Make sure that at least one member of your household is trained in first aid and CPR and knows how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

Emergency Contact Cards of All Household Members

Get your cards online at http://www.redcross.org/prepare/

Print one card for each family member. Write the contact information for each household member, such as work, school and cell phone numbers. Carry the card with you so it is available in the event of a disaster or other emergency.

Who Built This Mayan Apocalypse Game?

Can the hoopla surrounding the Mayan prophecies of a 2012 Apocalypse raise money and awareness for actual disaster relief?

That’s the idea behind Wheel of Destruction, a whimsical online game developed by Graphica that spoofs the Mayan end of the world myth. We’re developing this game and associated content as a way to highlight Graphica’s design and web capabilities while at the same time raising money for worthy causes. The best part for non-profits is that when players play Wheel of Destruction online, non-profits in the real world benefit.

The fun of the game revolves around predicting some unusual and humorous ways the world might end, if the over-hyped Mayan predictions prove true. Players choose a charity, choose their prediction and spin the Wheel of Destruction. The points they win in this matching game translate into an actual cash donation to their chosen charity.

In addition, the Wheel of Destruction website and associated Facebook and social media will give players access to:

  • preparedness tips for real-life emergency situations
  • checklists for what to have in case disaster strikes
  • first aid information
  • social media links to additional information
  • an e-commerce site that sells whimsical survivalist and prepper paraphernalia.

Though we’re using humor to spoof what is almost certain to be a end of the world myth, we’re also using the attention we get to promote actual disaster preparedness and to support real world causes that aid humanity.

The idea of creating a timely, interactive online game to play and offer a charitable outlet came from the integrated design firm of Graphica. We enjoy bringing to life, creative solutions that engage the mind and deliver a specific message. We bring together a diverse range of insightful thinkers making our business strategic and highly creative.

For more than 28 years, Graphica has worked with market-leading companies and world-class brands to create innovative design and communication solutions that deliver results. From strategic development and design conception to project implementation, we deliver the creative experiences that connect with audiences through our unique combination of branding strategy and smart design.
