2020 Out Shop Cancer Merchant Registrations Now Open




For IMMEDIATE Release
2020 Out Shop Cancer Merchant Registrations Now Open 
STRIDES CAMPAIGN (MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER)
October 1 to October 31, 2020
An American Cancer Society & Relay For Life of Second Life Fundraising Event

Do you know someone who has fought breast cancer? Have you ever wanted to do something about it? Do you believe that we should commit ourselves to create a world where our children don’t have to go through the same experiences as we have?

The American Cancer Society gives us the best chance to make a meaningful difference in finding treatment options, early detection, and the prevention of breast cancer. You are invited to be a part of our community of breast cancer warriors in Second Life. October is commonly known as “Breast Cancer Awareness Month;” therefore, each October, the Strides Campaigns of the American Cancer Society in Second Life offers multiple opportunities for a wide variety of avatars to use their Second Life to make a real difference in the lives of people around the world.

In order to make the biggest impact, we are opening registration for the 2020 Out Shop Cancer shopping now! Event organizers urge builders, creators, and store-owners to sign up now if you want to be a part of the grid’s most-successful, longest-running, and farthest-reaching effort to fight breast cancer in October.

Since 2018, Out Shop Cancer has been a grid-wide shopping event that brought avatars to participating merchant stores. Merchants designate specific items that will be sold as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs and services. Each year has seen an increase in the number of merchants and designers joining the fight against Breast Cancer. 

Continuing for the 2020 season is OutShop Cancer: Marketplace. This allows designers without inworld locations to take part as well!

Sandie Slate and Savannah Loosestrife are the Event Leads and plan to welcome a variety of designers to represent the diversity of avatars in Second Life. “Because breast cancer is the 2nd most diagnosed cancer, and because Second Life gives us the opportunity to explore so many different forms of expression, we are planning a shopping experience that will offer something to as many types of avatars as possible. This means that we need a cross-section of designers and creators to represent fashion, hair, accessories, skins/shapes, A/Os, recreation, art, and anything else that would interest men, women, children, and non-human avatars in Second Life.”

Essentially, if you create and sell anything in Second Life and you want to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer program, you should apply now to reserve your spot. 
Please contact Sandie Slate (Sandie Loxingly) or Savannah Loosestrife (SavannahRaye Resident) for questions or more information.
