I attempt to make a point of staying within the Steampunk realm, but there are always exceptions to every rule, and for me, one of those is easily the SL “Toys for Tots”. Its history is better described in its narrative…
Toys for Tots began in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR, and a group of Marine reservists in Los Angeles. Over the next 59 years, the Marine Corps Reservists Toys for Tots program has distributed over 370 million toys to more than 173 million needy children.
This year the Music Academy Online is bringing together dozens of SL entertainers for a huge festival which will take place over two weekends. Last year we raised over L$440,000, and this year the goal is one (1) million lindens.
Help us make a difference in a child’s life. Your gift truly does matter. So please, join our festival at our sim, Utwig, and hear some great music, or just stop by to say “Hello” and donate as much as you can in one of our four dedicated Kiosks.
Unfortunately I was unaware of this until late this past weekend, but that still allows one more weekend (Saturday the 13th and Sunday the 14th) to attend the events at Utwig, enjoy the music of the listed artists, and make a child happy for Christmas. (As soon as I obtain the upcoming weekend’s enterainer, I shall post it)!
