October 22 Pink ribbon

 

24 hours, weeks of planning, one dreamer, that got others crazy enough to believe in a dream! A dream to use a virtual world as a means to make a difference in the real world. A virtual hospital and a virtual club,raising more as 40.000 virtual dollars were raised in 24 hours, money that directly went to American Cancer Society, for the breast (cancer) awareness, not the virtual ACS but the real one.

 

To use a virtual world to make a difference in the real world, is not new, in fact this whole website revolves around that idea. But to raise over 40.000 virtual dollars with a limited amount of people is an astonishing success!

Beside the fact that money was raised, a lot of people took a second, to think about breast cancer

 

I like to thank 3 people from the virtual club specificity, Jordy Anna and Sydney, their names in random order :-), they were the main organizers for this event/dream.

Thank you 3 very much!!

 

What also like to do is to introduce you all to a finished department a month, no surprise this month the WHC or women health center, the main focus of the WHC is:

Breast (cancer)awareness and female reproductive system problems.

The WHC was originally created to give women who have been RL diagnosed with breast cancer an opportunity to experience some of the diagnostic steps in a virtual world first, ask questions get a note card about what to ask your RL doctor.

Result they are better prepared and hopefully a bit less anxious.

 

The WHC has set up a series of numbered diagnostic tools, avatars get in each step an explaining note card from that step. There is a mailbox system, when no staff is around the can ask their questions and will be contacted a.s.a.p. Also there is a pretty good web link that allows visitors to access in SL a very good website about breast (cancer) awareness.

    Exerting force too high will tip it over – hopefully
    not on you. It requires a lot of money and research to get the right furniture for your space.
    Select known brands that would ensure comfortable and safe furniture.
