Bringing you the best of Second Life since 2008.

1 Billion Rising

This is a come as you are post. Me on my building pad (happily neater since I have spent the morning with inventory chores) in what I was wearing (OK I changed from the YELLOW boots to keep with an analogous palette).

From the notecard:

One Billion Rising for Justice in Second Life will be held ALL DAY FRIDAY 14th FEBRUARY

On February 14, 2013, for 24 hours starting at midnight Pacific Standard Time, Second Life residents will join with activists around the world in a spectacular 24-hour event for ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE, a very special day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.

The Second Life event will feature a four-region stage where 200 people can dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations, poetry events and informational exhibits.

A variety of performers will play and perform over the 24-hour period, enabling people all over the world to attend this virtual event no matter their timezone.

The regions will have a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate.

The objective of the event is to raise awareness, not to raise funds; however, information about real-world organizations will be available for those wishing to donate.
We have special One Billion Rising goodies for you - including tee-shirts and jackets for women (made by Liv-Glam) tee shirts for men (made by Styles by Kira), and adorable teddy bears (made by Sway Dench of Sway’s).

There are lots of places to pick these up. Here is the top on the list. They will also be available at the event.

The four regions will open at 11pm on Thursday 13th February.
