Wow, there is like a ton of in-world activity going on around cancer lately. Here's yet another cancer-related benefit coming up in October.
Yogi Huldschinsky, the organizer of an upcoming charity event entitled "Pink for Life," contacted me regarding some changes to their mixed-reality event, which I have blogged about previously. "Pink for Life" is a benefit for the Institut Gustave Roussy, a prominent French breast cancer research center, taking place October 9-10.
First of all, Yogi tells me that they succeeded in getting the permission of several real world luxury brands to reproduce their products in Second Life for auction. (So that's not a knock-off virtual Prada bag, honey!) Also they will no longer be holding a virtual auction, and instead will be giving away pink ribbons and asking for linden dollar donations. SL designers are still asked to "lend" pink objects for display, but they won't be up for sale or auction.
Oh yeah, they are also looking for models to strut their stuff on the runway with the donated goods.
