Japan Relief Fundraisings

Posted: 03/15/2011 in Uncategorized

Hello all.

As everyone knows Japan is currently undergoing one of the biggest crisis humanity seen so far. After the earthquake and the tsunami thousands were killed or lost everything they had. That’s why Maezy Magic and me decided to put a collection of all ongoing fundraises in Second Life on our groupblog. We hope to make it easier for everyone who is willing to donate and help to find the donation fund that works best for them. The post will be updated as soon as I receive further information.

Hugs, DelaRosa Glimmer

An emergency fundraising effort for the victims of the crisis in the Pacific that hit on the 10th/11th of march is being set up.

SL is an international community, with a strong base in Japan specifically. This disaster is worldwide and affects us all, as a community SL has risen up time and time again to help out in times of distress, including very recently.

In september 2010 11,000 us dollars was raised for the pakistan flood crisis relief fund (UNICEF) at an sl event. An event organised in four days. This is an example of what our community can do, and we are attempting to prepare for a similar, simple but effective, event.

We are calling for anyone who wishes to help with this fundraiser. We will be providing vendors that donate 100% of sales to a charity account (Charity Shelter) for people to place in their stores and at an event location.

The products in these vendors don’t have to be new, but the more new and exclusive items available the more money we will raise, so even a variation of an existing product is appreciated.

We require all brands involved to have one product sold at 100% to the charity, however if more than one item is available the others can be at 100% or 50%.

Please note that 100% of all money raised will go to the charity Americares (http://www.americares.org/). Land was donated by Glam Affair and all volunteers are giving their time without charge.
