FREE LAND FOR KATRINA RELIEF?

A recreation of New Orleans' French quarter, a live music telethon with a 100+ live audience, a Mardi Gras march with avatars made up as floats-- the possibilities are infinite. Springboarding off the gratifying success of so many SL-based Katrina relief efforts (scroll down this blog to see just a sampling) Linden Lab has offered to loan out a multi-simulator plot of 32 to 64 acres for benefits and events to help the hurricane's many victims. If enough Residents express interest, this land will for a time be opened wide to the wildest events that can be conceived on such a vast space.

Details here-- express interest in getting involved (in any capacity) here.

FREE LAND FOR KATRINA RELIEF?

And why not dedicate this land to all the great catastrophes that happens around the world? Tsunamis, quakes, etc etc. I think it is a good idea, but if SL is really a Global Virtual World, should move towards helping people around the world, do not matter their nationality or condition. If Linden creates now this space just for Katrina disaster, then should create another for the next quake in Central America, or next diluvian rain in south asia. Am I right?

Perhaps the right solution should be to let that space as a global SL ONG meeting place where aproved groups would have the right to build and create, and any funds collected destinated to what each group decides it has to go according to real life ong legal organizations.

It is just my point of view. I would happily create a group and create and collect for starving children in sudafrica for example.

Kind regards and good blog!

It's a very good point, Guriek. There were several SL benefits for victims of the tsunami that hit Southeast Asia earlier this year, and I'd love to see more of the same for all the many deserving causes around the world, in this world.
