.. the fairelands will rise again ..

ff19_poster_square

Fantasy Faire has just announced very exciting news! 2019 marks the eleventh year for this amazing event which is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life of Second Life. The theme or tag line for 2019 is “Builders of Hope” and indeed this event brings together the best builders and fantasy creators each year! Not only are the Fairelands’ regions built with such care and creativity, but the designers that fill the shops also bring some amazing creations to the grid. There are performances, role-play workshops, music, laughter, auctions and general a very special and challenging quest to be found at the Faire. The dedicated Fairefolk gather and plan so that the enthusiasts, role-players, shoppers, music-lovers, performance junkies and supporters can all find something of interest nearly every day of the event!

This year, Fantasy Faire will open the gates on April 18th. In the past, the event was scheduled for 11 days and generally due to popular demand, it would stay open for just a few days longer. The exciting news this year is that it will remain open officially until May 5 – that’s 18 days! Planned performances and programs will end on April 29 with the all-day One Team marathon dance party honoring all of the Relay For Life of Second Life teams but shopping will continue until the following Sunday. And you never know, there might be some crazy pop-up party in that last week!

In 2018, the Fantasy Faire event raised around $50,000USD for Relay For Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society. In the past 10 years, the total raised equals $290,000!  This is truly an amazing group of people that organize and support this effort each year. One of the unique things about last year’s fundraising is that it was earmarked for the Hope Hostel that is being planned in Nairobi, Kenya. That effort continues in 2019 with all funds raised going to build this new Hope Lodge!

.. my heart has grown cold ..

How pale is the sky that brings forth the rain
As the changing of seasons prepares me again
For the long bitter nights and the wild winter’s day
My heart has grown cold my love stored away
My heart has grown cold my love stored away

I’ve been to the mountain left my tracks in the snow
Where souls have been lost and the walking wounded go
I’ve taken the pain no girl should endure
But faith can move mountains of that I am sure
Faith can move mountains of that I am sure

Just get me through December
A promise I’ll remember
Get me through December
So I can start again
