Culture Shock

Unfortunately, RL forced me to face some unwanted obstacles (I won't bore you with the details), so I apologize that this is a bit late and also that there is not more than just the one item. (Hopefully I'll be able to provide more before the event is finished.... fingers crossed.)

So... with that having been said...

The ::COOL BEANS:: Forget Me Not (Crochet Dress) is currently available at the Culture Shock event for $125L.  All of the proceeds are being donated to the charity listed below.  Click HERE to check it out!

"The first annual "Culture Shock" event in May 2011 (May 1st - May 22nd) aims to be a large and important event for the Secondlife fashion culture. Celebrating trends and trendsetters within our business, and incorperating music and art, all with reflections of our own personal first life cultures depicted in our creations."

Designers participating in this event will each have items set for either 50% or 100% to be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières (commonly referred to as  " Doctors Without Borders ")  This is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation.

"In countries where health structures are insufficient or even non-existant, MSF collaborates with authorities such as the Ministry of Health to provide assistance. MSF works in rehabilitation of hospitals and dispensaries, vaccination programmes and water and sanitation projects. MSF also works in remote health care centres, slum areas and provides training of local personnel. All this is done with the objective of rebuilding health structures to acceptable levels."
