LABOR DAY WEEKEND KATRINA RELIEF IN SECOND LIFE UPDATE

As of a few hours ago, Mr. Peregrine's Red Cross donation box at the Waterhead Memorial has garnered L$198,000-- almost US$800. A great start, but still not enough, not hardly.

Waterhead is even more crowded over with flowers and tokens of mourning and remembrance. There's a Katrina T-shirt dispensor, and also a dispensor that gives out Mardi Gras-style glass bead necklaces. And Residents keep coming, to talk about their own experiences with the disaster, or simply light a candle and quietly watch the news feed photographs of profound grief and suffering display across the memorial's screen.

Eos Zander and Raven Pennyfeather are coordinating assistance to their close Resident friends who were forced to flee New Orleans with the clothes on their back: Vampira Caldera and Samuel Frost, repectively. Of Samuel, Raven says, "He was very touched by all the support he has received from his friends here in Second Life. He is starting his life from scratch but I have every confidence in his ability to not only survive but to thrive." Eos has helped raise US$130 for Vampira, along with additional logistical assistance. "She is very UP for someone who has been living with seven people in one motel room without electricity for a week," she announces in my New World Notes forum. "She wanted me to thank EVERYONE for her. She is totally overwhelmed by the kindness you all have shown." Contact Eos Zander and Raven Pennyfeather for more information on those efforts-- more on their stories in this space soon.

Typically, Second Life's events listings are dominated by Tringo games and nightclub parties. But this weekend, it seems, every fourth event is a benefit for Katrina's victims. A list of upcoming events this Labor Day weekend, by no means exclusive, all Second Life/Pacific Standard Time:

Hi Hamlet & assorted readers,

Wanted to let you know that the Burning Life 05 artists are quickly mobilizing to host Burning Life '05 - Art Does Its Part, an artists collective response to Hurricane Katrina.

Between 9/5 and 9/12, you'll be seeing (hopefully) auctions (including actual Burning Life builds), free gifts and commemorative items for donations, and informational billboards with phone numbers and information on how you can help.

Don't forget to check Snapzilla (www.slpics.com) and the limited-time Burning Life Snapzilla section, collecting pics from all Burning Life visitors!

If there are Burning Life artists that want to contribute time, talent, or space, please check the following forum thread for information:

http://forums.secondlife.com/showthread.php?t=60368

If you'd like to help out in any other way, feel free! Let us know!

IM Cory Edo inworld, or email me at coryedo(at)gmail.com. See you at Burning Life!

Thanks for the head zup!

Phoenix Spa Resort has pledged all traffic for Labor Day Weekend to go to the relief efforts, as well as gathering donations from event attendees ($2000L raised yesterday and another event planned for the upcoming Friday).

Our funds will be used to help an SLer (longtime arts events volunteer at the spa) and New Orleans resident who has been devastated by the hurricane, losing everything but life and limb. This SLer has gone to seek shelter with another friend from the community for the time being, and we hope to raise enough to make a dent in his replacement costs for clothing, etc. Also, I have pledged 10% of my linden sales on ebay buy it now items toward this fund, geared to target funds for this member of our SL community who has his entire house washed away. I'm thrilled to see the responsiveness of the SL community. Keep up the great work! ~ PP

CHARITY BALL and AVIE AUCTION
Sponsored by The Metaverse messenger and Cocktails Ballroom
Tuesday, September 13th - 6 PM SL Time

Several Lindens and other well known SLers have agreed to participate in the Charity Ball and Auction.

The management of the Metaverse Messenger has wanted to hold a fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Katrina for some time now. We have tried to come up with something that would raise a lot of L$ and also be enjoyable.

We won't be auctioning off clothing, skins or vehicles. We'll be auctioning off residents of Second Life... perhaps those you have always wanted to get to know better.

If you are the high bidder, you will win a date with the person you bid on. Winning does not include any sexual activities however (that's our official disclaimer), just a fun evening of getting to know someone a bit better.

You could find a quiet spot and chat with your auction "prize." Or ask him/her to show you his/his favorite places in SL, how to design, build, script, animate.... the fun you will have!

We intend to put ourselves on the block. If you would like to do the same, simply send Katt Kongo a notecard in-world, with your biography (make it interesting) and name the notecard "AUCTION ME!"

Up for bidding (so far) are Bub Linden, Blue Linden, Nova Linden, Maureen McLean, Cheronne Basset, Katt Kongo, Phoenix Psaltery, Jesse Murdock, Aimee Weber, and none other than Anshe Chung!

We hope to get many of you to join in. Remember that it is for a good cause!

If you plan to attend, we are selling tickets (L$250 per person). Maureen McLean is in charge of ticket sales, so please contact her.

ALL L$ generated by this event will go to the victims of Hurricane Katrina via the American Red Cross. We hope to raise more than L$250,000 through this event.

Pretty much nothing seems worth doing. I've just been letting everything happen without me these days. I've just been sitting around waiting for something to happen, but whatever.
