Open Forum: Are There Any Second Life Fundraisers for the Victims of the Haiti Earthquake?
News from Haiti in the aftermath of the recent earthquake has been horrific, and in times like these (such as Katrina), the Second Life community often rallies together to start fundraisers, for donating Linden Dollars converted to cash for the victims and relief organizations helping them. If you're aware of any existing now or being planned, please post the details in Comments, and I'll highlight as many as I can. Much thanks to Tonjampae Amat, my Portuguese translator, for the suggestion!
Update, 7:07pm: To start donating now. Roland Legrand points us to the Red Cross donation site. An here's some Residents volunteering to put together some in-world fundraising activities -- please get in touch with them in-world!
- Katydid Something: "I'm starting to put together a two day Music and Arts festival to benefit Haiti Earthquake victims. Planning funds to go to the American Red Cross for distribution to Haiti. Dates still to be determined."
- OMGWTF Barbecue: "This week (and next), some of the Fifty Linden Fridays vendors will have a special red colored item out for 50L. Proceeds from the sales of these red items will be collected, documented and sent to the Red Cross."
