I am reporting to you from Plumhill sim in Second Life, currently a beehive of activity as many designers are setting up vendors for this worthwhile charity event, which will open to the public in the very near future.
Project Fur Japan is a Second Life fundraiser to help rescue lost animals and give veterinary help to hurt animals from the horrible earthquake in Japan recently. For information about how the effort began and who is involved, please take a look at the Project Fur Japan blog.
As I have come to expect, the Second Life community has risen to the challenge of helping. A full region has been donated to the effort by LeLutka. Scores of designers have been busy creating items to be sold, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Japan Earthquake Animal and Rescue (JEARS). Many others have already donated substantial sums to get the effort underway.
But you can help too!
The organizers say that “Right now we need creators to donate their creations and give the proceeds to the cause. If you would like to be involved, or help in any other way, join the in-world group Project FUR Japan.”
With all this going on and tugging at my heart strings, I created a set of 4 puppies, exclusive to this fund raiser. These adorable pups are mod/transfer and are only 99 L. So I hope that you will collect them all, for keepers or to trade with your friends.
When the sim opens to the public, please come look for us in the purple section.
