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“.

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!!!!

Get Ready to Shop!

It is time to make your shopping count with the Out Shop Cancer shopping event in support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the American Cancer Society.

From October 1 through October 31 you can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer by visiting the select businesses who have generously donated their time and talents in an effort to raise awareness and provide funds for research and programs which support breast cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. It is also the second-leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.

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.
