I don't know if Koinup will frown on this, but I don't look at this as advertizement becasue I'm fundraising.

http://www.rflofsl.org/ If you're not familiar with Relay For Life, it's an SL Wide fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. It's a charity near to my heart, as m mom passed away many years ago due to pancreatic cancer. So when Christine Daffodil announced that they wold be holding a surf comp to raise money for RFL, (http://www.surfslsa.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=250 Flynn Sheridan Invitational) I was in.

I've been canvassing for donations to cover my entry into the event, but I've decided asking for handouts is just not enough. So I made a few items to sell, all proceeds are going to the RFL campaign. Teh above image is part of the package, a 3/4 wetsuit in RFL purple. It also includes a "Hang 8" t-shirt & some swim shorts. The wetsuit comes as an underwear layer, or a pants/shirt layer so you can still be tattoo friendly.

I'm selling the box in world for L$125. We tried to set up a vendor just for them, but the vendor box didn't like it ever much. So, I'm doing immediate transfers. As soon as I see the sale, I drop it off at the RFL kiosk.

you can find these at my shops on Sunset Bay (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Sunset%20Bay/55/207/22) And Topanga Beach (http://slurl.com/secondlife/La%20Cuesta/91/120/22 damage enabled, warning) There's also a box at Sifton (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Sifton/67/181/65) next to the fishing pond.

I'm happy to announce that the furry community alone has raised over L$16,000 for this RFL event, and I'm gonna keep on canvasing 'till the 21st. And if you want the limited edition gear, you gotta get it now. I pull the plug on the 21st. And a LOT of people have been donating significant amounts, and thank you all! I literally log in and drop it off first thing before I even do anything else. Christine, who's organizing the Flynn Sheridan event, is literally FLOORED at the support. "Christine Daffodil: and yes, PLEASE express my deepest gratitude for their kindness and generosity...it is very moving...."

Even if you don't go throgh me, I'd like to ask that you all please help in the RFL campaign in whatever way you can. Thank you all.

Thank you Pier. :) I feel a little better now. :) I was a little put off when my fundraiser was rejected by SLX, but I *really* want to get teh word out about this one.

I'm going to be contacting the ACS to get it officially "sanctioned" somehow, the RFL has a "sale" board on their site, and I'm hoping to fundraise there too.

Thank you again!
