Click here if you're a user of Kirsten's Viewer, the popular third party Second Life viewer of the same name. It's the crowdfunding campaign launched by the viewer's creator, programmer Lee "KirsteenLee Cinquetti" Quick, who needs 25,000 UK pounds to continue developing the viewer, and to support his partner, Sylvia "Dawny Daviau" Thevissen, who has health issues. As first reported by Inara Pey, if the crowdfunding goal isn't reached by December 17th, development on Kirsten's Viewer will end.
"As I said in the past," Sylvia tells me, "we need stability... We needed the funding for one year's wages, as we can't live out of the allowance (welfare) in the UK (not nearly enough to eat) so we need to move on." While nearly $10,000 in donations have been raised so far, "Lee is already looking and applying for jobs."
The thing is, 25,000 UK pounds is an attainable goal. Kirsten's Viewer is used by about 8,000 people. If just one thousand of them donated an average of 20 pounds each now, the goal would be fulfilled. Click here to become one of those donors.
