Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event

The Out Shop Cancer Shopping Event expands on the traditional fund-raising shopping event, by taking participating shoppers out across the gird to the main stores of participating creators and merchants, rather than offering limited space for stalls and shoppers within an event region.

Participating stores are required to have at least one MSABC vendor and / or gacha with proceeds going to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life. Two vendors types will be available: 100% of proceeds to MSABC and a 50% split between the store and MSABC. A registration fee for participation is also  applicable, and registration and sponsorship fees are non-refundable.

Shoppers will be able to visit participating stores either via a special MSABC teleport HUD, or via a web-based shopping guide with SLurls.

Merchants wishing to participate should note that space on the HUD is limited, and offered on a first come, first serve, basis. However, all participating stores will be listed on the MSABC web shopping guide, and via social media channels and in-world note cards. Participating designers will be listed on a board during official Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life events.

There will be a special means for SL Marketplace only stores to participate in the event. For full details on the event, including how to participate from the SL Marketplace, please use the following MSABC links:
