IMPORTANT LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION DRIVE!! BE the MATCH Needs YOU!


Each and every day over 6,000 physicians scour the Be the Match's donor registry for a LIFE-SAVING match of cord blood or bone marrow for their patients..  That match could be you!

Be part of the ONLY benefit on SL that does NOT ask for lindens! If there is a tip jar, if a kiosk asks you for lindens, it is NOT a Be the Match EVENT.   All of our kiosks will be giving out information about Be the Match and sometimes some free gifts. NO LINDENS WILL BE REQUESTED AT ANY TIME!

Our kiosks ask people to visit the two websites listed below..

OR you can Volunteer or Donate RL funds to this page,
 http://www.bethematchfoundation.org/goto/BWBTM
 IF YOU DONATE a receipt will be sent directly to your email, so you have proof for tax purposes.  IT will include the non-profit tax ID. No one on the grid holds your money.. no linden exchange.. direct to the place it belongs without an SL "middle man".




All of us at the Be the Match Foundation invite YOU to one of our Be the Match Events spread out over the grid to help get out this life - saving information.

Be the Match needs YOUR help!!


For patients with Leukemia, Lymphoma or other life threatening diseases, a marrow or cord blood transplant may be their only hope for survival. If a patient doesn't have a matching donor in their family they turn to the Be the Match Registry in hopes of finding an unrelated donor. Ordinary people like YOU .. ARE THE CURE!
So If you would like to help Be the Match, if your group or MC, can do an event, entertain, run a motorcycle ride, donate goods for prizes, or what ever you are willing to help with, WITHOUT recompense, WE NEED YOU!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
Be the Match accepts NO lindens! You may NOT exchange lindens at these events. YOU may NOT give LINDENS out for Prizes. NO LINDENS MAYBE EXCHANGED FOR BE THE MATCH! These are INFORMATIONAL events. BTM events MAY direct people to the website to donate. (Where they can get a REAL receipt for tax purposes) But, will NEVER request Lindens, ever!
You can join the Registry, Volunteer, or Donate all from the BTM website.

ALL Second Life BE THE MATCH EVENTS are INFORMATIONAL ONLY WITH no TIP JARS OR REQUESTS FOR LINDENS!
Events can run any time between OCTOBER 9TH UNTIL MIDNIGHT OCTOBER 28TH.
Anyone from ages 22 - 44 can get the "KIT" with the cheek swab for free during the event dates. Anyone over 44 must pay $100 American dollars to join the registry. That said, just because you're over 44, you don't need to join the registry to be able to volunteer to help with anything from clerical work to running an event or to DONATE RL monies at the WEBSITE. People donating can get an INSTANT tax receipt from the websites.

Contact Steela Wandin, Itybitybe Resident, Katsii Tennen, Mightbe Shelter or any of the Biker's Weekly Staff for more information about how YOU or your MC can help!
