One Billion Linden$!

Since 2005 volunteers in Second Life have fund raised to support the American Cancer Society and its mission to Save Lives, Celebrate Lives and Lead The Fight For a World Without Cancer.  In this especially difficult year Society volunteers and the residents of Second Life have stepped up and helped raise more than $300,000 U.S. bringing the 15 year cumulative total to more than $3,970,000.  The SL Christmas Expo, which dedicates its proceeds to help fund Childhood Cancer research and support, has set its goal to bring that total to ONE BILLION LINDEN$ - $4,000,000! Join us at the Expo and help us finish this most trying of years on a positive note!
