Stand up 2 Cancer In Second Life, organised by Still Braveheart, this weekend reaches the half-way mark in a marathon series of concerts and DJ sits taking place at over 40 venues across the grid and which features over 150 artists, performers and DJs.
The events are to raise funds for Stand Up 2 Cancer (SU2C) and their ground-breaking and innovative approach to ending cancer, which puts funds directly where they are needed: into leading-edge cancer research and treatment, and undertaking aggressive research programmes. 100% of all donations made through SU2C goes directly into funding this work, none is lost to “administrative costs” or put aside for CEO or executive salaries, etc.
Since launching on September 12th, Stand Up 2 Cancer in Second Life 2015 has already brought-in donations of almost L$800,000 (approx US $3,200) in the course of its first week through in-world donations alone (people can also donate directly through the SU2C SL Team web pages – see the links at the end of this article), which has been a phenomenal response for SL residents.
The best way to keep fully abreast of SU2C activities in-world is via the Google calender of events and via Still Braveheart’s blog. – and remember, SU2C runs right through until Sunday, September 27th. In the meantime, here’s the weekend’s line up, which may be subject to last-minute changes.
As always, all times SLT. Where a time or venue has ” against it, it means it is the same as the last entry to provide either.
