Go ACROSS Second Life this Fall with Making Strides!

This fall, get ready for a brand new way to fight breast cancer in Second Life!

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life will literally take you…. ALL ACROSS SECOND LIFE!

Starting Oct. 1, the American Cancer Society will have not 1, but 2 month-long, grid-wide events with something for everyone: The Strides Parade of Homes in Second Life and Out Shop Cancer.

Strides Parade of Homes in Second Life will take you on a tour of some of Second Life’s newest Dream Homes, decorated by top Second Life home decor specialists, with beautiful landscaping features from top Second Life garden and landscaping pros.  Whether you are ready for a change or move in Second Life or planning for the new year, Parade of Homes gives you the opportunity to get everything you need for your SL dreams while donating to the fight against breast cancer.

And new for 2018, we have revamped our traditional shopping event to take our shoppers across the grid with Out Shop Cancer! This year, participating stores will have designated Making Strides vendors at their main store and shoppers will be provided with a teleport hud to take them around to the shops and a web-based shopping guide. There is even a way for merchants to participate on Marketplace.

Of course,everyone is invited to participate in the annual Strides Walk on Oct. 20, and mark your calendars for the season-ending Strides Gala on Oct. 27.

To get involved with any of our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life events, swing by the Strides office on the American Cancer Society region or visit our website at makingstridessecondlife.org.

2018 Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event

For the 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life season we are going to “Out Shop Cancer” by taking the shopping event out across the Second Life grid!

For the 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life season we want to highlight all of the wonderful designers and creators who bring so much support to our campaigns each year.

In an effort to do this, we have created the Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event! This will be a grid-wide shopping event taking you directly to the designers’ main stores. The Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event will run from October 1-31, 2018. There will be a shopping hud available on October 1, 2018 throughout the month of October. There will also be SLurls and a shopping guide available here on the Making Strides website as well as on social media sites.

If you are a designer/ merchant and you would like to participate in the Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event, registrations are now open! Please follow this link for more information and how to register.

2018 Strides Parade of Homes in Second Life

We are please to invite you to a new and special event taking place in Second Life during the month of October.  We are holding “2018 Strides Parade of Homes in SL”. This will be an event were Second Life builders, interior designers, and home & garden creators can show off their incredible talent while helping the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign in Second Life.

We are taking a new and we believe fresh approach to the classic “Fair” events in SL.  In classic fair events you would be ask to purchase a booth or sponsorship to participate and then agree to use “x” number of vendors for the cause, along with asking to provide one or two additional items for the event.  At this point, you would create a satellite store for the event. We would like to bring the “Fair” to you! Curious? Click on this link to learn all about it and to see how you can sign up.

Theme Ideas for 2018 Strides Season

We had such fun with this year’s Making Strides theme of “Treasure the Chests” we wanted to get a head start on ideas for the 2018 Making Strides theme.

For that we would like to hear your ideas and suggestions. Please take a few minutes and submit your suggestions here .

We will be taking your ideas through Monday, November 6th. After that a voting ballot will be send out to choose the most popular theme suggestions.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Leala Spire or Sandie Loxingly inworld.
