2014 in review

This post originated @ Addicted To Hunts.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Rock Your Rack 2014 is on it’s way!

This post originated @ Rock Your Rack.

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This year’s event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

The 2014 event is on three sims and involves 64 designers including 7 Platinum Sponsors: Barely Legal Couture, Delirium Style, Legal Insanity, Liv Glam, Lybra, Mute. , and {ZOZ}. Along with these designers, 10 Live Musical Artists, and 13 DJs will provide entertainment throughout the two week long Event.

Events during the fundraiser include 16 fashion shows, 10 live musical concerts, a performance by the Dazzler’s Dance Troupe, 8 DJ dance parties, a 10L Hunt, Silent Auction areas, and two different Gacha! areas. Designers will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest and most popular designs donating a percentage as well.

For a complete listing of events and more details on this year’s event, please visit the website: https://rockyourrack.wordpress.com

This year’s event officially opens to the public on Monday, September 1, 2014 at 12:00am SLT and will close at 11:59pm SLT on Monday, September 15, 2014.

Together we can make a difference!

Those who are unable to attend but wish to support the cause, may visit the Model’s Giving Back official donation page at https://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=283425 where donations can be made directly using a variety of means.

Spiral Out 2014.

This post originated @ A Clockwork Spiral.

It is gonna be a bumpy landing, by Glenawyn Seregon

 

There were so many firsts.

Last night, at midnight SL time, there were 24 people on Cursed.  On the very last night.  This is unheard of in event circles. It just doesn’t happen.  Normally by the time the event hits the last night, there’s maybe 3 or 4 stragglers rushing to get their last minute shopping done, but everyone has moved on to other events.

There were 24 people on Cursed at midnight last night.

At 6am, when I logged in to lock the sim down, there were 10.  I gave them a warning and a last 15 minutes before I rebooted the sim up.  10 people still there, when we closed.

I don’t have words for that.

 

This is also the first event we’ve ever had where I didn’t have to ban anyone. Thanks for that, too.  Usually I wind up throwing at least 3 or 4 people on the ban list per event. This time? Nothing. Awesome.

Every time we do an event, we wind up surprised by something. This time, there were nothing but surprises. Most of them were even good. (I won’t lie and say ALL of them were, but most of them.)   We cannot thank everyone enough.  All the merchants, all the shoppers, all the bloggers, all the random people who came by to take photos, and the Firestorm and Linden Lab teams for their incredible, incredible support during these last two weeks.  When I got the final total, I think Lokii needed to sit down.

Greta, by Roxi Firanelli

People have asked me how I pick our charities. I always tell them that I don’t.  That’s not entirely true- I always pick the Oopskate charity.  But for the big events I have never once chosen the charity.   This event is about Lokii.  A few years ago she got really sick, with kidney trouble and needed surgery. The NKF helped her, and every year she pays them back. As my tag says, “I just work here.”

Of course now I have to pester her to make her annual post here, but I’ll get to that in a minute.

The Night Troops 2, by Devin Vaughn

The total raised for the National Kidney Foundation at A Clockwork Spiral 2014 is 733,286L.

When you check the exchange on that (and I always do it at a limit sell of 248 since that’s what I use for myself) you get this:

 

$ 2853.32 USD.  That’s roughly 275% more than last year.  Think about that number.  We came close to tripling last year’s total and it’s because everyone came together to help support the NKF.  We don’t have words other than thank you so we’ll keep saying that instead.

As I’ve said MANY times now, due to the changes in Linden Lab’s cashout procedures, we have to turn over the money *in Lindens* to the charity’s representative inworld so they can cash it out. We cannot cash it out directly to the charity anymore. The NKF has their own account – NationalKidneyFoundation Resident, and we have written confirmation from the NKF that the account is legitimate and belongs to them.

Once we turn over the lindens to that account, *we no longer control it*.  Just so everyone understands that.  Our job is to make sure the NKF account inworld gets the money.

Which they have.

Thank you all so much again. Lokii will be along presently to babble for a bit.  As for me, I am working on our next (and newest) event, A Tattered Page* [*citation needed] which you can read about (and apply for if you like) here.

 

Signing off from the Spiral this year,
