Pulse: supporting Orlando victims in Second Life

Pulse information on Flickr

Earlier in June, and following Strawberry Singh’s lead, I posted about the fundraising kiosks created by Casper Warden to specifically to raise money for the victims of the horrific shooting at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub. Now Casper, in partnership with Cerberus Xing and designers from across Second Life are taking things further in support of the victims and their families.

Pulse event

The Pulse Fundraising event opens its doors at 11:00 SLT on Tuesday, June 28th. It features over 100 designers, is sponsored by CasperVend and held on a region donated by  CerberusXing, with the intention to support the Pulse Victims GoFundMe Page established by Equality Florida, the state’s bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organisation with the aim of providing financial support for the victims of the shooting and their families.100% of all proceeds from the event will go to the campaign, which in turn promises that:

Every penny raised will be distributed directly to the victims and their families. We are working with a team of attorneys and experts, including the National Centre for Victims of Crime, which deployed funds in both Chattanooga and Aurora, to ensure funds are distributed correctly.

Pulse event

The event will run through to Tuesday, July 12th. Participating designers include Blueberry, Little Bones, Moon, Birdy, Addams, Exile, Cyberus Xing, Pixicat, Reign, and more, who will be offering new or discounted items.

As a part of the event, there will be a raffle for one year free at Bella Pointe (valued at L$77,948) from Bella Gacha. Donation kiosks are also available for those who wish to show support for the Orlando victims without necessarily making any purchases.

    1. The SLurl is given in the body of the article, and under “SLurl Details” at the the end of the piece. However, as noted, the gates don’t open until 11:00am SLT on the 28th. This is advanced notice to help spread the word.
