Love’s Fragile Tendrils. Hopes New Beginnings.

51,501 L’s raised here for Wigs for Kids. Only 3 days left to pledge. The fact that you’re able to read this and I’m able to write it on a computer with Internet means we’ve all hit humanity’s lotto. We’re literate and we can afford to instantly access a treasure trove of information. However, despite this great fortune we are all unlucky at times as well. Face it, everyone has problems. But when I begin to dwell too much on my own, I tend to be inspired by people who overcome their disadvantages and circumstances. You know the type; they never seem to be down, always forging on despite glaring flaws. These people live as a reminder to me that all the little nuisances I complain about (wayward mothers, stress, relationships, paying-the-mortgage-payment-to-the-power-company-thank-God-there-is-only-seven-more-days-to-payday-because-I-am-unbelievably-hungry-this-month), well these things are so minor and temporary in the grand scheme of life.

Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora has been a long standing designer in Second Life. But she has also been a pillar of the Second Life Fashion industry, freely giving her inventory for numerous charities and fashion shows through the years. In December 2011, our real world friend was diagnosed with metastasized breast cancer and given a very grim prognosis. In true Squinternet form, she buckled in, bore down and fought the cancer with alternative and traditional therapies which definitely prolonged her life, but now, the cancer reorganized and though she won the battle, now she must fight to win the war. And thanks to modern technology, we have, at our fingertips, the ability to encourage and uplift one of our own, even if she lives half the world away.

Please, come together and help us, the Second Life Fashion Industry, as we all double down and throw in to give back. July 25th to August 11th, 2013 has been declared the “Love Donna Flora” event and there will be designs from many of the SL Fashion industry’s finest designers for sale to thank, to help and to honor Squinternet Larnia. Each designer will create one item in which 100% of the proceeds will go to the Love Donna Flora fund, specifically to Squinternet Larnia to help defray the costs of her alternative therapies and home nursing care. There will be other items sold from the designers in which 50%, 75%, or 100% can be donated. You buy and wear clothes all the time in Second Life, why not buy from the same designers you frequent daily anyway, with the added joy of knowledge that you will be lending much needed help to a fellow resident and friend?

This event is more than about raising money. It brings awareness, in a real world sense, to the ravages cancer can wrought on families, friends, acquaintances, any human being, at any time. So even if you do not have a single Linden to your name, give your time. Take 30 seconds of time to encourage our friend, tell her she is a missed and valued member of our community, she isn’t forgotten and you send her well wishes and strength. Let’s loudly and boldly give her hope by posting messages of good wishes, thoughts, stories, and memories on . If that’s not your thing, there is also a Flickr pool for pictures for Squinternet. Because we all know fighting cancer takes money, but at times, more importantly, it takes an endless supply of love and hope too. Will you share yours today?

The take from? Yes, today more so than ever. The Dalai Lama said “if you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do no harm.” So if this is not for you, that is fine, ignore it. Just know, humans have the ability to love one another and to help others rise up, simply by pouring out love to one another. Love is infectious and is one of the greatest healing energies on this Earth The best part? It is completely free because we are all born with love tucked in our hearts. Just a little something to think about, if you so choose. I’m kinda easy that way. Thanks to Tania Tebaldi there is a list of the SLURL’s to the stores found under my Love Donna Flora SLURL’s page!
