The Month of Games - July 12th - 31st, 2014!

How should we maintain Second Life as Linden Lab works on a new platform? See Part 2 of the Designing Worlds discussion

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

Join us today, Monday 21st July at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for the second (and final) part of our discussion about Second Life’s continued viability and the ways in which Linden Lab might attract existing communities to their new platform.

Our great panel of guests is present again – including Jessica Lyon, Project Manager of Firestorm, Jo Yardley, owner of 1920s Berlin, Maxwell Graf, owner of Rustica. JJ Drinkwater, Virtual and real life Librarian and Pathfinder Lester, Community Engagement specialist (and the ex-Pathfinder Linden).

We don’t talk about the technical possibilities of the new platform; instead we’ll be focus on what needs to be done to keep Second Life vibrant and alive … and, at the same time, what might persuade the residents of Second Life to make a commitment to a new environment – and some of the answers may be surprising!

Join us at 2pm for an important and fascinating show – make sure that you don’t miss it!

And believe me, it is well worth a visit! The teams have created some of the best camp-sites I have seen, with beauty, fun and information about cancer – often all in the same parcel!

In addition there are some stunning designer builds – and some great underwater builds too.

So don’t delay! You can start your journey at the Welcome Point, which has tons of information - but you can also just pull up the map and take your choice from all the sims whose name starts with RFL.  And you’ll see from the map that this year’s track was arranged in the shape of a ten – because Relay for Life of Second Life is now ten years old and – in terms of fundraising – it is now expected to be in the top 20 Relays for Life anywhere is the world for 2014.

Relay for Life Weekend starts today!

Today, at 10am, the fantastic weekend of events that marks the climax of the 2014 season starts.

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing, now 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.
  • In 2009 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over $ 270,000. US dollars and was attended by thousands of avatars.
  • In 2011 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over US$ 375,000 and ran right past the US$ 1,000,000 mark during the 2011 campaign!
  • In 2012 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over US$ 375,000, taking the total raised since 2005 to over US$ 1,600,000 by the end of our 2012 fundraising season.
  • And in 2013, Relay for Life of Second Life, in a thrilling climax to the Relay weekend, crossed the 2,000,000 mark!

This year the plan is to raise US$ 401,000 – i.e. 401K. That figure represents a huge task – we started the weekend at 382,000.  The significance of the number is that 401 is the tax form that mark retirement in the United States – the plan is to RETIRE CANCER!

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe (and in Second Life) a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, to remember loved ones lost, and to fight back against the disease.

Relay Weekend  is a fun-filled, overnight event that unites SL individuals throughout the world to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

And the TV channels of Second Life are coming together to produce a twenty-four telethon to cover this event, which you can watch on slartist.com.

  • The Telethon is covering the 24 hours of Relay. Live coverage is from 9am – 10pm (including the Luminaria ceremony at 9pm) on Saturday 19th, and from 6.00am till 11am on Sunday 20th, plus  on Saturday.
  • During that time, we’ll bring you news of the Relay from our studio – with information about all the events that are going on, together with trackside interviews with teams and sim designers.
  • And when we’re not live, we’ll be showing interviews with Chairs from the RFL Committee, classic clips from RFL history, and TV shows from Treet TV that have featured Relay for Life.

Country Life

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

I am a country girl at heart. Give me some fresh picked produce and a casual place to sit and I am a happy gal.

Out for The Seasons Story from Cheeky Pea a BIG set of countrified decor items. These are my personal favs but you can also find a pergola,  loungers (both PG and A) and other decor items.

July is a busy summer month with lots to see. Be sure and pencil in some seasonal shopping! There are some lovely new releases out. You don’t want to miss them.

Feathered Flights of Fancy at Fashion For Life

Original post @ serenestyle » Secondlife Special Event by serenestyle.

birds of a feather_comp

Two exotic birds of paradise was the thought that sprang to mind when I wandered through the Azul display at Fashion For Life and my eyes rested upon the gorgeous vibrant feathery plumage of these gowns. Both are still available at the Trek sim with donations from their purchase going to support the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. Here is a super useful link that gives you direct SLurls to all of the different stores that are at the FFL Event. Remember this is open until midnight on the 20th June. [ http://ffl.iheartsl.com/designers/store-slurls-alphabetically/%5D.

Before I drop down to the details I want to mention a sale that is happening right now at DeeTaleZ. Several lines are being retired and are significantly reduced in price, in this photo I am wearing one from the reduced line, you will find there are two separate rooms ( the skins in the main room are newer and not part of the sale – Around the World range). There are appliers available for these skins but they will not be having any new items made since they will be removed as the store prepares to expand the ATW range. Meanwhile go try on some demos these skins are a steal at the following prices: 199 L$ for our Skins of the Delicious Skin Line !!99 L$ for our Standard and Mix & Match Skins!!

One Billion Rising In Second Life!

Original post @ The Femdom Network.

COME AND DANCE: ONE BILLION RISING IN SECOND LIFE

SECOND LIFE® RESIDENTS JOIN GLOBAL CAMPAIGN “ONE BILLION RISING”
TO STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS

On February 14, 2013, for 24 hours starting at midnight Pacific Standard Time, Second Life residents will join with activists around the world in a spectacular 24-hour dance event for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.

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. On February 14, 2013, men and women in Second Life will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and people across the world to Walk, Dance, and Rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change.

The Second Life event will feature a four-region stage where 200 people can dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations and informational exhibits. A variety of performers will play over the 24-hour period, enabling people all over the world to attend this virtual event no matter their timezone. The regions will have a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate. Pictures are welcome on the event’s Flickr group.

The objective of the event is to raise awareness, not to raise funds; however, information about real-world organisations will be available for those wishing to donate.

One Billion Rising in Second Life is sponsored by: Alchemy Immortalis; Bits and Bobs Animations; Cheeky Pea; The Domineaux Effect; Dutchie; Galland Homes; Garden of Dreams; Gos Boutique; Gwen Carillon Designs/Serenite; Heart Garden Centre; Kaerri; MadPea Maven Homes; Meshworx; Prime; and Spargel and Shine. In-kind sponsors are: CaLLie CLine; Fruit Islands; KittyCatS!; L’Aize Days; and Prim Perfect Publications.
