Snapshots of One Billion Rising & Isle of View 2019


Here are my newest snapshots below of the 7th annual One Billion Rising event and the Isle of View regions in Second Life for 2019. I enjoyed attending both this week and I recommend going if you have not been before on Valentine’s Day.

One Billion Rising 2019 Starts Tomorrow In Second Life


Preview of OBR 2019

The 7th annual Second Life One Billion Rising event starts at 12am SLT on Thursday 14th February 2019. The event will be held on four OBR regions on the map and it’s expected there will be a large gathering this year. The event lasts for 24 hours featuring many DJs, performances, poetry and much more.

The main stage is central of the regions surrounded by an area of art installations and informal exhibits. It’s definitely worth checking it all out.

About OBR

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face.  We rise through dance to express joy and community and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence. We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.

And we here in Second Life can be part of this global movement.

Bay City 8th Annual Mole Day Happening Saturday 2nd February


On Saturday 2nd February, from 11am to 1pm SLT Bay City will be hosting their 8th annual Mole Day event in Second Life at the Bay City Fairgrounds at the North Channel region. It’s definitely one of my favourite events on the grid every year. The attendance is pretty high each time. The community comes together and celebrates the hard work moles do on the grid every year to make the Second Life experience even better.

This year features a DJ live music hour by GoSpeed of KONA Stream starting at 11am SLT until 12pm. After there will be a live performance by Melenda M. Baptiste from 12pm to 1pm SLT.

The Moles are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW) group that is a program totally focused on improvements on the Mainland. Moles build the infrastructure including the roads, railways, coastal waterways and protected lands of Second Life. The big project the Moles are currently working on is on the SSP regions which will become Linden Homes at some point this year.

Our Relay For Life in Second Life is among the top events in the world, with more participants from various countries and more donations made per event.

The Challenge is for each Relayer to bring one other person to Relay along with them!

Let’s show how Relay For Life of Second Life makes things happen. Register your team, then have each team member register their dashboard. THEN EACH ONE BRINGS ONE!

While forming and registering a team is lots of fun and very rewarding, there are many ways to Relay.  These are just a few ideas to help guide your conversations.
