Second Life is a great platform for grassroots movements to gain recognition and for others to fundraise. Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society seem to be the most covered/supported charities within the grid, and while this is great news for them, it’s a shame that other diseases are often overlooked. Cancer is in the limelight, and other illnesses are forced to take a backseat to them. Because of this lack of public understanding, support, and recognition, they are unable to fund research programs to tackle the multitude of other threatening illnesses that countless people suffer from. Being chronically ill myself, this event, a sort of “hat tip,” to the illness is very touching- even if the event isn’t to raise awareness for my own particular brand of ill.
So, please come support this awesome event!’
