Santa has been watching and he’s making a list and checking it twice!! The SL Christmas Expo is just around the corner and it promises to be great again this year. I blogged for the Expo last year and enjoyed it so very much that I was excited to see the blogger call for this year and excited to make the team!
This will be the 9th annual SL Christmas Expo and the theme is “Believe in the Magic of Christmas”. The expo supports the American Cancer Society and you can do your part simply by shopping for gifts for yourself or others. There will be everything from fashion to decor. The creators will be offering select items that will be sold at 100% donation to the American Cancer Society making it SO easy for you to do your part to help. There will be a Holiday Shopping Spree Raffle, a Gift of Hope Mega Raffle and a Stocking Stuffer Hunt.
The American Cancer Society in Second Life and Linden Lab have teamed up and announced a “Blockbuster Auction”. Here is the press release with all the details…which are SO exciting!
“The auction will be held during the Expo which runs from Dec 5th through the 15th and supports the Society mission to fight Childhood Cancer. One lucky bidder will receive a 6 month Premium Membership and a 4th Edition Linden Home with Exclusive Seasonal content and located on a special parcel designed just for them by LDPW Moles. The auction is the fourth and final element of the Lab’s participation in this year’s Expo. As previously announced the 4th Edition of the New Linden Homes will be revealed at the Expo, Linden homes will be decorated and take part in the annual Lights Of Hope house decoration contest, and the first ever Ebbe Linden Bear will be revealed and available for a L$ 250 donation to the American Cancer Society, toward the Expo’s goal of raising $20,000 to provide VR Headsets to be used by kids undergoing cancer treatments.
Silent bidding on all OOAKs begins Dec 5th, with final Open Auction Bidding starting at 10am Dec 15th.
“We are grateful to Linden Lab for their invaluable support of the Expo,” Expo Director Nuala Maracas stated. “Every aspect of this year’s Linden Lab participation will help us not only reach our goal of $20,000, but will also help make more residents familiar with all the programs available at American Cancer Society here in Second Life® and in the organic world.”
In addition to the Linden Homes and Ebbe Bear, this year’s Expo will feature more than 170 merchants, spread over 12 regions, and bringing every aspect of SL living to the event. Fashion, Childrens shops, breedables and home and garden are only part of the excitement. Nearly non-stop entertainment, Christmas trees, a Snowman Contest, a Kids Fashion Runway Show, winter activities, gachas and raffles are also on tap at the largest and best known Christmas Event on the grid. There will also be a Stocking Stuffer Hunt and the Magic of Christmas Mega Raffle with more than L$ 155,000 of gift certificates!
