Bringing the Fight Against Cancer to Second Life

by Alphaville Herald on 21/08/05 at 9:19 pm

The New York Times has an article today about the Second Life Relay for Life that’s being put together by Jade Lily and SnoopyBROWN Zamboni to benefit the American Cancer Society. The benefit is a week away, August 27-28, so save the date.

The article marks the latest RL press appearance of that guy Mark Wallace (or here). It’s also interesting to note that the arm of the ACS that’s coordinating with Jade and Snoopy on the project is called the Futuring and Innovation Center. Acronym, anyone?

Seriously, though, we’re looking forward to more good works like this coming to Second Life in future. The Relay isn’t the first benefit to hit SL, and hopefully it won’t be the last.

    I think this is an amazing project and I’m very excited to see it happening! Kudos to those who put this together!

    And Walker, did you make that picture in the header? I think it is really neat looking! The melding of RL and SL pictures gives an amazing perspective on this project and even the future of SL. Very nice! =)

    Pendari that picture was provided by Snoopy. I think he and/or Jade put it together. It does capture a lot, you’re absolutely right.
