FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tornado Benefit @ The Inlet


Dancing with Michael Jackson proved to be a fan favorite as club-goers joined the History group dancers

   
    On May 19th and the 20th, Strupples Davidov watched as the state she lives in was torn apart by tornadoes. One of the May 19 storms passed within sight of her home, but it was the next day's destruction that shook her to the core.

    She is safe and still has a home and family. But she watched in horror as the destruction in nearby Moore, Oklahoma, was revealed on television. Homes, businesses and schools were leveled by nature's wrath.  

    "As a teacher, mother, and just as a human being, it has ripped my heart out," she said "The more I saw, the more it affected me until I couldn't watch any more and had to shut the TV off. I logged into Second Life to try and get those images out of my head, but they wouldn't go."

    Watching the television made her feel helpless. But as co-owner of The Inlet, Strupples began to think maybe there was something she could do, after all. "The only way I could think of was holding a music marathon in Second Life. We can make a difference. We can donate to the Red Cross to help them in their aid to Tornado victims."

OPERA JOVEN sim is in danger of closing-GUADALAJARA, JALISCO, MEXICO - La Perla Tapatia



According to the descriptions, Jalisco is one of the most beautiful States in Mexico. Guadalajara City is the capital. This SIM is a touristic replica built by OPERA JOVEN (www.operajoven.com) a RL nonprofit cultural & artistic organization. But, it is in danger of closing its doors like many other non profits being hurt by LL's decision to cancel the 50% discount given to non profits on islands tiers.
http://tinyurl.com/sl-discount-cancelled


Moby Randt writes in a notecard, 

"This is a shame because these organizations provide SL many content and handle diverse interesting educative and cultural projects. Without this discount surely many of these organizations will abandon SL soon."


Without this discount, OPERA JOVEN cannot keep paying this sim and unfortunately it will disappear.
 However, Linden Lab offers these organizations to pay in advance up to 2 years before 2011 to still benefit of this discount. http://tinyurl.com/sl-offer-pay-in-advance

At this time, six months costs $885 dollars, equivalent aprox. to L$250,000.

From 2011 this price will be doubled.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
