Online Donations

Your friends and family can donate to our team online even if they aren't in Second Life.

Online donations can really add a LOT to our Linden totals and help us stay ahead in the competition! Remember that 1000 Lindens is around $4.15, so a $25.00 donation can bring up our totals dramatically.

This is our team donation page:

The Concert at Luskwood


Our concert on Saturday was a big success! We had a lot of fun, and raised over 25,000 L! Thanks to our Musicians, Jaycatt, Frogg, and Alessandra for voulunteering their time. Thanks also to the folks at Luskwood for letting us use the cool venue, and especially to Lomgren Smalls (pictured above) for organizing it.

Jaycatt Nico & Frogg Marlowe rocking out!




Fellow Redhead Alessandra Eberlain sang with a voice like an angel!



Here are some totally unofficial, off-the-cuff ideas for helping The Passionate Redheads move up to ladder:
1. Contact EVERY group owner of EVERY group to which you belong. I did and sent each one an IM like this:
"If you haven't already, would you consider placing a kiosk [name of venue], for the Passionate Redheads Team of The Relay for Life of Second Life? The team would greatly appreciate it. Just IM Daaneth Kivioq, our cocaptain. I also have kiosks, but lack any knowhow.
We are also looking for people/venues who would be interested in holding fundraising events. Such an event would be just like any event you put on now, except money raised would be donated to the Passionate Redheads team of the Relay for Life. You may IM Daaneth Kivioq or Sabine McGettigan (the captains of our team) if you need any clarifications.

Thank you so much for your consideration and for your time."
In just one afternoon I got three kiosks placed. (Some people weren't online and will receive their IMs when they log in)

2. If you own, manage, direct, or perform at a venue ASK and get those kiosks out. I was at two venues today where I have seen kiosks in the past and there were none!

3. Post information about RFLofSL on blogs, nings, Twitter, Plurk . Include hyperlinks to offline donations (if you need them, IM me). Advertise us to your coworkers, schoolmates, church friends, coffee buddies, and neighbors.

4. If you own, work at, or possess the skills that dressmakes, artists, or SL builders have --> you are valuable!! We need a store owned by a Redhead that could sell Redhead gear to ungifted people like me!

5. Approach the venue of your choice with your zany fundraising idea & (like Nike says) just do it!
A. A Redhead Cruise under the stars
B. A Redhead Circus under the Bigtop
c. A Redhead Diner Car Ride on the Orient Express
D. A Redhead Gallery Opening (paintings, ceramics, photos, ?)
E. A Redhead Royal TeaParty or MadHatter Tea Party
(enough of my zany ideas..)

6. Gather after another event, like the Giant Snail Races on Saturday, March 20th at 2pm (I would doublecheck that time) the team could gather somewhere for a time of community building.

Welcome to Relay for Life 2010!

The Passionate Redheads Team for Relay for Life kicked off the 2010 season of fundraising on Monday, March 15! Our little party was hosted by our elegant Redhead, Leala Spires, with the incredible DJ Shockwave Yareach.

While this is my fifth Relay, most of our team has been with us for three years now. It is an incredible honor for me to be a part of this beautiful team of Warriors.

Let's continue to take care of each other as we have in the past. Together we can help Fund the Cure!

Yours in Service,

Sabine
