One of the best things about our community is its unwavering support for good causes. Fundraising events and designer fairs that give back to nonprofit initiatives are so ubiquitous that they are now part of our common virtual culture. That’s why we’re excited to call attention to and support both Relay For Life and World Oceans Day – both events take place June 8.
FREE T-SHIRTS IN THE MARKETPLACE
For a limited time, you can grab your free virtual t-shirt promoting one or both causes in the Second Life Marketplace.
RELAY FOR LIFE IN SECOND LIFE
In Second Life, the annual Relay for Life event is packed with events on June 8 including the survivor/caregiver walk and Luminaria Ceremony. Login, show your support and help raise funds for an important cause. Your presence and contributions do make a difference – over $3.5 million USD have been raised by these efforts over the past decade!
The premier fundraiser for the American Cancer Society is free and open to the public. Relay Weekend is a fun-filled, overnight event that unites Second Life residents throughout the world to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones, and raise money for the fight against cancer. Opening ceremony starts at 10am SLT on June 8th. For more information visit: https://www.facebook.com/rflofsl
WORLD OCEANS DAY IN SANSAR
There’s a big event happening June 8 in Sansar, too. This World Oceans Day, you don’t have to leave home to make a difference.
Help clean a virtual beach in Sansar on Saturday, June 8, from 12 to 5 PM PT, as we celebrate the world’s oceans and raise money for EarthEcho International!
To join, simply log into Sansar if you have an account (or download it if you haven’t yet), pick one of 4 shark avatars for yourself, and meet us on the beach, where we’ll be picking up virtual trash, bouncing around, and playing games. As more trash gets collected, amazing sculptures will begin to form in the experience.
For every shark that joins, we’ll be donating $5 to EarthEcho, along with an additional $5K if we complete the sculpture before the event ends. As a bonus: The Roddenberry Foundation will be matching up to $5K!
It’s a one-of-a-kind fundraising event and all you need is a PC to experience it. Don’t miss out!
Have a great week from all of on the ZI Staff
