SLRFL is kicking Cancer’s butt! But good!

Holy Schnikes! SLRFL (Second Life Relay For Life) is at L$4,292,497 as I write this! That would cost one about 16 grand USD to purchase that many Linden, to give you non-SL folks an idea of what kinda cash we’re talking about here.

Fund raising started at 2 pm Pacific on Saturday March 15th, and it’s about 8:30 pm Pacific on Wednesday the 19th! Our goal for the entire campaign is to raise $ 150,000 (US dollars), 20% of which will go to international “sister” Cancer Societies, 80% will stay in the USA for research, as well as to help those surviving and fighting cancer.

RadioRadio is one of the 81 teams (at last count) formed in SL to raise funds. We’re running about 18th or so as far as total funds collected but as I pointed out earlier, things are just getting going!

Frankly I’d love folks to donate to the RadioRadio team of course, but really, ANY donations going to the American Cancer Society is the point. Who doesn’t want to see all cancer eliminated, relegated to the history books?

More to come!

Madame Maracas,
Wanted to thank you and your team personally for your support of Relay For Life of Second Life. And I think, if memory serves me right concerning the history of RFL of SL, as Jade explained it to me, Radio Radio has been right there from the beginning offering and giving support. WOW! Thank you for that dedication, time and labor! Without people like you and your team; well, Relay would just be another fun but take it or leave it event. You each have so touched people’s lives living with the impact of cancer.
Again, thank you,

Fay
