GOVERNOR LINDEN ANNOUNCES 2021 BID THE LINDENS BALD TEAM ROSTERS

 


Six Teams of Lindens & Moles Compete To Support Relay For Life

Governor Linden announced today the rosters for the six teams to compete in the 5th Annual Bid The Lindens Bald fundraising competition, in support of the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Second Life.  The teams, made up of Lindens and for the 1st time, Moles, have accepted the challenge to out raise their colleagues and “Save Their Hair”.  The top fundraising team will be awarded the scissors with which they will shave the hair of the team with the lowest total.  The competitors have agreed to go bald until the SL18B celebration in June.  The fundraiser will be held May 12th through May 19th in conjunction with the Relay Rockers’ annual RelayStock multi-team event.

The Rosters of the 6 Teams are as Follows:

Team 1:  Alexa, Dottie, Izzy, Mint, Rhea, TJ, Wendi 

Team 2: Cammy, Ellie, Kit, Oberwolf, Rocko, Tommy, Whitney 

Team 3: Dakota, Evie, Kreide, Obi, Simon, Vanessa 

Team 4: Darcy, Grumpity, Kristin, Patch, Spots, Vix 

Team 5: Derrick, Hobbes, Maggie, Patsy, Theresa, Volo 

Team 6 (Moles):  Abnor, Alotta, Chronos, Dion, Hazel, Itsa, Maximus, Milli, Notta, Spirit

A special Linden Bear has been created to celebrate the event. This very Limited Edition Bear will only be available at the Bid Me Bald Barn during RelayStock to anyone making a donation to one of the teams.

In 2017 Linden Lab took part in their 1st team challenge and since that time have raised more than L$3,000,000 to help the American Cancer Society Save Lives, Celebrate Lives and Lead the Fight For A World Without Cancer.  Supporters will be asked to donate to special Relay Kiosks dedicated to each team and located at the RelayStock2021 region adjacent to the American Cancer Society virtual office in Second Life. At 2pm on Wednesday May 19th the kiosks will be totaled and the official Haircutting will take place.

The original Bid Me Bald event was created by the Relay Rockers in 2007 as both a fundraiser and a show of solidarity with cancer survivors. Bid Me Bald recognizes with respect and support that chemotherapy and other lifesaving treatments can lead to side effects, notably hair loss.  Bid Me Bald participants choose to ‘shave’ their heads as an act of support and fellowship with our honored heroes.
