The Relay for Life of Second Life Main Event starts today (Saturday, 7/17) with opening ceremonies at 10am SLT. The Survivors will hit the track at 11am, with Caregivers walking at noon. Then we are ALL on the track until tomorrow morning! 24 hours of Relay for Life in Second Life…we are here, are you? It is an amazing journey and we would be thrilled to have more join us on the track. Yes, there is LAG; yes, you will crash; yes, you might cry; and yes, you will feel good about being out here supporting all that suffer from this disease.

It is not too late to donate to provide funds to American Cancer Society to be used for research and other services. Already $200,000 USD raised since March… how much will we end with?? Come out today and show your support to this very important event… one of the largest events that is held in Second Life annually.

Walk with me… and my fellow teammates of Eternal Beacon!


Going Bald… Successfully!

As you saw from my previous post, a “Bid Me Bald” event to raise funds for the Relay for Life of Second Life campaign was held on Sunday, March 21 at Sol Mañanero Surf.  The RFL of SL team Eternal Beacon, hosted and our team captain, Dione Kohime, pulled double duty and DJ’d as well. 

It was a fun-filled event.  I had opposing kiosks set up.  One asking party-goers to bid for me to be bald, and one asking to let me keep my hair.  There was a definite push as it was evident just who wanted me bald and who loves to see me in hair!  LOL   Each time Linden were paid to the “Bid Me Bald” kiosk, I would groan…and then Linden would drop into the “Keep Me in Hair” kiosk to which I would cheer!  For 2 hours, we were entertained with the music that DJ Dione laid down from awesome mash-ups to songs about Sunshine/Sunny/etc… we danced, chatted, hoo’d and laughed!   One of my friends, Kekoa Arbizu, filmed the party and put together this video…take a look, it tells you a bit more about the “Bid Me Bald” event and shows us having a great time!! 

At the end of the event… looking to the kiosks, I found that those that favored the Baldness came in a bit higher requiring me to be bald for 2 days!  And then after some late breaking donations were made through Monday night (after this photo was done), I was up to 3 days bald! 

A Successful Event for Relay for Life of Second Life!


Now…the coolest thing about this whole event?!?  We raised over L$126,000 Linden for Relay for Life of Second Life benefitting American Cancer Society (late donations totaling an additional 2800L were received after above photo done).  The generosity of all amazed me and while I know that many might have wanted to see me bald for more days, I think that the offsetting kiosks worked to bring in more linden!!!   Thank you all to those that joined me and that paid my kiosk through Monday night for that reason.  The “Bid Me Bald” event for Sunshine is over… hmmm should I do another one?  🙂 

Bald IS Beautiful!!! 🙂

Bald…to be or not to be, that is the question! 

In Second Life, it is easy for us to go without hair, but… those of us who LOVE hair and change it up daily might have a little harder time losing the hair! Well… our team, Eternal Beacon, is planning multiple events that will have our friends Bidding to Make Us Bald! My event is scheduled for Sunday, March 21st. For every 5000L paid into my RFL of SL vendor, I will have to be BALD for a calendar day in Second Life. Well, I proposed that we have a vendor set up to help keep hair on my head…as well. Soooo we will have competing bidding – those that want me bald and those that want me to keep my hair!!! All in all, it will be funny and I plan to be bald for a few days… more people want to laugh at my bald head, I’m sure, soooo unless others match the bids, I’ll be a domehead for sure! Never fear, in Second Life, we can have a nicely shaped head too!!! 

Bid Me Bald!

Join us for sun, surf and dancing on the beautiful beaches of Sol Mañanero Surf. 

Sunshine Zhangsun (co-owner of Sol)  is going to go bald 1 day for every 5,000L donated to her vendor….or is she? 

There might some willing to donate in order for her to keep her hair (Jac doesn’t like me bald!), so we are setting up two vendors for Sunny. 

Every 5,000L in one will add a day to my baldness
Every 5,000L in the other will subtract a day from my baldness

So either way, the American Cancer Society wins. 

Party starts at 5pm slt, Sunday March 21st
DJ Dione will be providing the music
So bring your board shorts and some big bucks! Surf’s Up!

Hope you will stop by and help us raise funds for this awesome charity!!  And yes, you can also laugh at me as I freak out over every day I have to be bald in SL!!!
