Ways to Help

dsv-669x272

We have reached the end of October and the end of this year’s major Making Strides’ Events. The kiosks will remain out and Making Strides always appreciate your support and donations. For this final “Ways to Help” for the year, we decided to use it to talk about and show our appreciation for our volunteers this year with Making Strides.

First, on behalf of Sandie and myself, along with all the Strides committee, “Thank you” to each one of you who put lindens in kiosks, went across the grid shopping with Out Shop Cancer, explored and found a new home from Strides Parade of Homes in SL, bought a raffle ticket or placed a bid on an auction. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!

We appreciate all who planned and held their own events at venues across Second Life. And we celebrate those who became the first set of “Strides Boosters“.

We would like to thank all the merchants, designers, and builders who were a part of our two new events – Out Shop Cancer and Strides Parade of Homes in SL. We are extremely grateful and appreciate all of your hard work and the wonderful donations you contributed to both of these events:

Last but in no way least, Sandie and I would like to say thank you to the Making Strides committee.  As you can see from this list no one or even two people can do this alone.  It takes many, all have special gifts and talents.   We were lucky to work with some very special people on the committee.   So for each of your gifts, thank you Sunshine, Serina, Kitty, Nevar, & those very special ones who like to stay nameless.

As for ways to help… become a new name next year to this list of amazing people here in Second Life.  Watch for ways soon.

Thank you all!!!!

 

Don’t miss the Parade of Homes

From sleek modern to cozy, there’s something for every home taste in the Parade of Homes.

Be sure to stop by the houses on the Parade, which goes through Wednesday.. Be sure to bring your Lindens because the houses are for sale and many of the stops also have furniture and more that goes with the homes, all benefiting MSABC Across Second Life.

Here’s a brief rundown of what you’ll see on the tour:

PARADE OF HOMES (1)Wood paneling warms the sleek modern Miami Loft from Harrys Houses. The skybox features plenty of room while still maintaining an open feel.

PARADE OF HOMES (7)Take a trip to the Middle East with the White Villa from Studio Craft Architect. With its clean lines and exotic flair, the Villa transports you to a 1,000 Arabian nights!

PARADE OF HOMES (6)The sprawling home from Pierce Designs Studios is an experience that is not to be missed. The multi-level home with a river running through it brings nature indoors. Explore the hillside home and see what wildlife you can spot.

PARADE OF HOMES (5)Feel the fog rolling in off the water in the mAI Sweet Home in its Lighthouse. With Old World charm, the lighthouse would be a graceful addition to your home.

PARADE OF HOMES (3)Plan to spend some time visiting the Love Everlasting homes. There’s two of them, each with a separate look and feel. See the indoor waterfall at the modern-style chalet or take in the coziness of the stone cottage. Both are available fully furnished and the decor is also separately available, all proceeds going toward MSABC!

PARADE OF HOMES (2)Rowanessque;s cozy cabin has cleaned lines and is perfect for those who wish to have a smaller home.

house_003The final stop on the Parade is AXL-pro’s house, which is a one-of-a-kind sprawling mansion with its own club and more than enough space for entertaining. There’s a second, smaller home available in a MSABC vendor: https://makingstridessecondlife.org/2018/10/25/bonus-home-to-buy-from-axl-pro/

If you have any questions about the Parade of Homes or MSABC please contact Leala Spire or Sandie Loxingly.

Each year, more than a million passionate women, men, and children participate in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation. The events unite communities by honoring those affected by the disease and raising money to reduce the burden of breast cancer.  Dollars raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer help the American Cancer Society fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most so that no one facing breast cancer ever has to walk alone.

STRIDES Walk is here!

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.
