I am a little behind the game on this one – this post should have been up yesterday but something dreadful was happening with my graphics card and the onboard fan completely quit causing my whole world to nearly cook itself to circuitry mush! Forgive me for that and let’s talk about the SL Christmas Expo. SLURL: *here’s your ride*
Christmas is a time for giving, for sharing, for remembering the things that matter and sharing all the love. It’s a time for families and friends to gather ’round the tree or table or even just the webcams (because some of us are simply too far away to hold hands and kiss under that sweet mistletoe) no matter how you do it – it’s a a special time of the year and this event has been organized for those reasons – sharing and giving – as well as giving back. The SL Christmas Expo is just one of the many events in SL raising funds for Relay for Life, an ongoing fundraiser hosted by The American Cancer Society who really need all of the help they can get because if we’re going to beat this thing – we’re going to need a lot more research and development in the field to really show Cancer who’s boss.
That’s where we come in – we can visit this expo and others like it – buy a gorgeous gift for that special someone, someone you care about or admire, or even just because! Several items hosted are on “100% donation” meaning that the full proceeds will go to RFL and several other items are being offered with other levels of donation percentages. We’d like thank each and every creator who has taken time to participate in this incredibly important event and we’d like to invite you to come visit the expo, see the gorgeous little Christmas town the decorator elves have erected for your pleasure, purchase some delightful little thing for yourself or someone you love or even just drop a donation in one of the many boxes marked for you onsite.
We’ve all been touched by Cancer in some way – be it someone you know – a friend, coworker, the lady who wraps your bread and always has a kind word, or someone you love – a parent, sibling, your child or spouse or life partner, maybe even you. Cancer doesn’t discriminate and that’s why we need to come together and fight together to find a cure and hopefully, one day cancer will be nothing more than a scary entry in the old history books but for now – we can help, we can make a difference!
On top of all of the gorgeous opportunities to dress up your Second Life in pretty things – you can also participate in several incredible community events going on throughout the Expo :
- Christmas tree lot
- Ice skating
- Home for the Holidays Raffle
- Snowman building contest
- Sleigh Rides
Catch up with the Expo on Facebook, the official Flickr photo group, or on their website/blog – if you’d like to see what the other official bloggers are up to – click *here* — Hope to see you out there, stay tuned for more treats from this amazing event!
