On February 22nd, following a lead from Saffia Widershins, I wrote about the situation involving Second Life creator Elicio Ember and his family. In short, Elicio’s father has suffered a major stroke, and the family is struggling to meet medical costs associated with his treatment.
Since then various groups of people have been putting together ideas, and I’m pleased to announce that we now have THREE ways in which people can and will be able to help Elicio and his family.
Filling the Cauldron is a week-long in-world event to be hosted at Holly Kai Park on the beautiful Blake Sea.
Saturday, April 1st through Sunday April 9th, inclusive.
- Live music and DJ performances at the park’s main events venue
- An art display inspired by Elicio’s work
- A silent auction
- A special Design a Garden contest with a very special prize
- A photo contest with special prizes
- A market area
- Cerridwen’s Corner – a mini-store of Elicio’s creations, allowing you to buy his items and visit his main store.
Website and Information

Available now is a special GoFundMe campaign organised by Vecchio Barbosa (Felix Büchler in RL), which is raising money to help Elicio and his family through physical world donations.
The campaign has Elicio’s full support and endorsement, as he is unable to run a campaign himself from Mexico.
