Turn the world purple for Relay For Life

2017-pslp-and-kickoffTo raise awareness and get ready for the Kickoff Celebration of the 2017 Relay season, Relay For Life of Second Life invites you to turn the grid purple starting March 4 through March 12!   Why purple? It’s the official color of Relay For Life because purple is the universal color for cancer awareness and Relay For Life raises money for research of all types of cancers.  We invite you to join us for a special purple celebration day Saturday, March 4 starting at 9am slt.  Tell your friends and help us get the word out for Paint SL Purple week!

How can you participate?  Turn your Second Life purple!  Wear purple clothes, purple hair, and even purple skin. Turn your house purple, paint your grass purple! Do you own a store? Paint your store purple. The goal is for people to take notice!

Take the purple to the next level by forming a team and registering. Check out our website, relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/ for information on how you can register a team and join in Relay.

To help with your overall purpleness, we’ll be sending out a Paint SL Purple kit too!  You can also get the kit after March 4 at this SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/American%20Cancer%20Society/112/46/24 on American Cancer Society Island.

Our purple reign on the grid started in 2009 and has been growing each year. Tell us about all the purpleness you see on the Relay For Life of Second Life’s Facebook page, http://facebook.com/rflofsl or on Twitter, @RelayForLife_SL. Use the hashtags,  #RelayForLifeSL and #PaintSLpurple. You can even take purple out to the rest of the web by painting your Facebook and Twitter pages purple too!

The theme of the 2017 Relay For Life of Second Life season is “Passport To Hope”. The Steering Committee is comprised of  the 2017 Relay for Life of Second Life Chair Nuala Maracas, and co chairs Grace Loudon and Leala Spire.

Elf Circle Project

Hi,

Inworld, I am collecting any memories of Elf Circle and its lands people are happy to share. Every member of Elf Circle will get a texture changing picture of the collection being put together in SL.

To help, please, send Sorrell Fang (that’s me) a box with full perm photos that are labeled. The box should be labeled with your name.

Also I’m trying to arrange  pictures by themes: events with event name, people of Elf Circle, places, Queen Forcy and High Council, etc. If you can include these in your labels that would help. The photos used will be included on the page here called Elf Circle Photos.

Hoping to hear from the members of Elf Circle. The goal is to have this project done before Christmas.  Hugs to everyone.

All the best,

Sorrell
