About Relay For Life of Second Life:

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing in Second Life for 10 years. In 2005, the first Relay For Life of Second Life

(RFL of SL) was attended by a few hundred avatars and raised almost $5,000 US dollars for the

American Cancer Society. As of July 2014 RFL Of SL ranks number 17th out of 5000 teams worldwide in donations received. We have brought in over 2 million US dollars to help with the fight against cancer. This year our Relay weekend will be held on July 17th and 18th.


About the American Cancer Society:

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of nearly three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 22 percent decline in cancer death rates in the US during the past two decades, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress nearly 14.5 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year.  We’re determined to finish the fight against cancer. As the nation’s largest private, not-for-profit

investor in cancer research, we’re finding cures and ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more. For more information, to get help, or to join the fight, visit cancer.org or call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345.

BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance opens today in Second Life


BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015

BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015

BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance opens today at 10am SLT  over at the BURN2 Burning Man region in Second Life. The weekend event runs until 10am SLT on Sunday 29th March 2015. There will be live DJ events, drumming, and live entertainment during this weekend.

There will be friendly and helpful greeters at the gates ready to help out and ensure that everyone has a nice welcoming experience. Let’s celebrate Balance!

Balance – Equinox is the time when the day and night are of equal length, it is also the start of both Spring and Autumn. In the virtual world we can mix all things together, so we can have bats flying down to sip the nectar from the new spring flowers in the daytime, or autumn leaves transforming into butterflies at night. As always our only limitation is our imagination.

Spread the word about BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance and come over this weekend. :)

Group Selfie Time with Lindens and the SL community

This afternoon around 65 avatars attended a very special meetup with Lindens over at the lovely Meauxle Bureaux region. Many known Lindens came along to hang out with the community including Ebbe, Torley, Xiola, Dee, Oz, Shaman, Michael and many more.

I just like to point out that the SL community likes having Lindens inworld either at meetups or at events in Second Life. Apparently there will be more regular meetups in the weeks ahead and I would like to say thanks so much to all the Lindens that attended today. I thought the meetup went really well along with good discussion too.
