Treat yourself to the best Christmas gift in SL

Last week I paid a visit to the 2012 SL Christmas Expo, which features fund-raising efforts for Relay for Life. Proceeds from special vendors in the Expo stores as well as donation to the familiar RFL kiosks will be going directly to RFL SL.

One of the things you can get at the Expo is a CD containing 39 Christmas songs and bonus track. This is available from special vendors at the Expo, with all proceeds again going to RFL SL.

(And yes, you did read the title of track 28 correctly!)

The cost of the CD is L$500 – but you can donate more if you want.

The package includes an in-world media player and download system which ensures a very smooth playback of all tracks (if you use the media filter common to many TPVs, you might want to turn it off or ensure you trust the CD domain in order to enjoy uninterrupted playback). The player itself allows you to shuffle back and forth through the track and play tracks randomly rather than in order. There is also a link to a webpage where you can download the tracks outside of SL and take them with you wherever you go.

For those unfamiliar with RFL and RFL SL, there is also a short history of both included in the package, which highlights the fact that SL users have, over the years, raised in excess of $1 million for cancer research and treatment.

All of us have more than likely been touched by cancer in one way or another, either directly or through a family member or friend. As such, this CD provides a very special way of helping in the march towards finding a cure – so why not take a jump over to the Christmas Expo and treat yourself to a copy?

One thought on “Treat yourself to the best Christmas gift in SL

  1. i’ll give You an even darker version of what can be happening with cancer: a country run by Randian fanbois on Golman Sachs’ and Deutsche Bank’s payroll; a country run by the aforementioned people, who have decided to stop providing even the slightest degree of healthcare, sentencing (just like the NSDAP did decades ago) chronic patients and disabled people to slow, agonizing death.

    Much as this initiative is commendable and worthy of praise, initiatives must also be undertaken in SL to stop the banksters’ madness and raise awareness of the plight of patients in the so-called “PIIGS”, countries whose peoples have been turned into scapegoats by the right-wing (see objectivist) media as “lazy scumbags living off welfare and honest rich taxpayers’ money” (even though rich and honest is quite the oxymoron) and have been plunged into extreme poverty to satisfy the twisted individuals that want their gambling to be profitable in all cases.

    You see, finding the cure for cancer is fine and dandy. But pretty soon only those in the Fortune 500 list will be able to afford treatment.
