ABOUT TOYS FOR TOTS
A bit about Toys For Tots and OUR mission to help..
“The mission of Toys For Tots is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted”. “All funds collected in InWorldz will go straight to our founders which will be donated to the Toys For Tots organization for this purpose. All builds, auction and sale items and entertainment is on a voluntary donation basis for this purpose.
WINTER & HOLIDAY BUILDS
We are looking for content creators to do Winter & Holiday builds for display. You may also sell your sim builds at the auction or in a kiosk, but all proceeds must go towards Toys For Tots. It is not demanded that your build be auctioned or sold towards this charity but bare in mind we are doing this for needy children. Those who are donating all or parts of your build please retain a copy for yourself for your own use or sales. If you are building or donating AN EXCLUSIVE- PLEASE SPECIFY. Also if something you don’t have permissions to donate (such as trees you purchased to surround your build) please specify in auction notes that trees do not come with it.
Winter & Holiday builds are a great way to showcase your work and you may use a lm/notecard giver to put a sign on so people can find your store and see/buy additional work from you.
This year we are holding 3 auctions. December 8th – Christmas Tree Auction, December 15 Christmas Tree Auction & the MAIN BUILDS, GOODS & SERVICES AUCTION Dec 23rd.. All are welcome to donate AND participate in purchasing items for these auctions.
TREE AUCTIONS- This year we have a lot set aside for our Christmas tree auction. We ask that you sens us 3 copies of the tree to be auctioned. One for display in thew lot, and two boxed versions for the two auction dates. Additionally we will have some donated trees in kiosks with proceeds to go to Toys For Tots. Please let us know if you would like to leave a kiosk tree
Scripts MUST be kept to a minimum and excessive or laggy scripts are subject to be asked to be removed at the discretion of the IW Events staff. No frequent “updating scrips” may be used such as updating texture switchers which 2 years ago rendered the holiday gala inaccessible until removed due to lag. We do understand that decorations on trees etc are essential for the holidays but please be conscious If you are not sure of a script please sens a notecard to EventsCoordinator InWorldz and I will have a tech look it over.
Last year we incorporated an art gallery into the main music venue build. We are doing that again this year as sales do go 100 percent towards charity. I would like to ask artists to place and sell one or more pieces of work for sale to benefit Toys For Tots. There should be TWO versions of 2D or 3D art. One for display, NOT for sale, and one in a Toys For Tots Kiosk for those purchasing a copy. Your vendor with the art should be placed close by your display version You may place your own art. Please be considerate of your fellow exhibitors…Winter or holiday themed art is desirable but is not necessary.
Artists should contact: Wolf Hartnell to be included in the gallery. Art must be hung/shown and in kiosks by December 5th.
Santa’s Workshop is a fun and beautiful build buyt it is so much more! It is a HUGE and fully Functional STORE filled with donated items in kiosks from Gifts, to Fashion, to Furniture and more! All items will be sold with complete proceeds to benefit Toys For Tots. Please donate PG Items only! Contact Sheku Thor or Tamara Redenblack for information. Kiosks will be made available to all outside of Santa’s Workshop. Thank you all in advance for your very generous participation & donations!
