Out Shop Cancer is a grid-wide shopping event that brings avatars to participating merchant stores. Merchants designate specific items that will be sold as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs and services.
Last year, more than 40 stores participated in this event. Our goal for 2019 is to have 50 designers and merchants involved in this breast cancer event. Sandie Slate and Ame Starostin Cheveyo are the Event Leads and plan to welcome a variety of designers to represent the diversity of avatars in Second Life. “Because breast cancer is the 2nd most diagnosed cancer, and because Second Life gives us the opportunity to explore so many different forms of expression, we are planning a shopping experience that will offer something to as many types of avatars as possible. This means that we need a cross-section of designers and creators to represent fashion, hair, accessories, skins/shapes, A/Os, recreation, art, and anything else that would interest men, women, children, and non-human avatars in Second Life.”
Essentially, if you create and sell anything in Second Life and you want to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer program, you should apply now to reserve your spot. For more information, check out the Out Shop Cancer Info page at makingstridessecondlife.org.
