I'm sure there are plenty of SLers affected by the storm. A friend of mine from SL lost her home. She's found a place to stay, but she's lost almost everything she owns. I'm also in Texas but I'm just north of the area affected. It's pretty bad south of me.

Make It Count

Please give to the Red Cross or Samaritan's Purse. I've been put off giving to SLers for things since the Haitian earthquake. The person who spearheaded that thing took some of the money and its well known. Why can't this person make themselves known so people can paypal them directly? I would maybe do that but I am not going thru a SLer to give money to someone else. People are just too shady anymore.

I heard about a Furry avatar modification being sold of which the maker says she'll donate all the proceeds to H-E-B Texas Grocery, which says "100% of donations will be distributed to the American Red Cross, area Texas Book Banks, Salvation Army, and Texas Search and Rescue/Cajun Navy."

Hi! Rowan here! Thank you so much Hamlet. To set the record straight, the person who let us know about Kioko gave us her Paypal address, but I REALLY didn't wanna make it public. I don't have a lot of RL money to give so I thought the best way I could help my friend is to make something that other people might enjoy and wouldn't mind spending a little money on. For Transparency sake here is a Gyazo of my Marketplace orders, showing the distribution of the sales. $2L goes to LL, and $47L goes to Kioko. The "Net Amount is how much goes to me" The vendor in the store is set to pay her 100% of the money you pay it. I'm not getting a single $L from this.

It would be nice if LL stepped in on humanitarian efforts like this by zeroing out the commission they take from SL Marketplace sales and cash-outs on a one-off basis. Yes, I do realise it's open to potential abuse, but if it's that much of an issue, perhaps LL could withhold just the amount that would have gone to commissions pending proof of actual charity.

Having said that, I think I should get these nails on my next login, they may not be Maitreya enabled but charity is charity :D

Oops. they ARE Maitreya/Omega enabled. sweet!
