With Love from Victoria…

The place, not the person(s).


I have been amazed and thrilled by the SL community this week. Such an outpouring of love and support from the community, to those of us affected by the bushfires in Victoria, Australia. This weekend, there are still a couple of fires burning out of control – for those of you who have never lived in a bushfire zone, a fire front 100km long is nearly as hard to control as a three year old on a sugar high – and the smoke from the fires all week has blown across the city of Melbourne. So we are living in haze and smelling smoke everywhere we go, which serves as a reminder of the awful events of last weekend.

The death toll is still officially 181. The papers have stopped printing figures, I think they will hit us later in the week with an updated total all at once, rather than continuing to update it daily and depressingly.

But I would like to say my small and humble thanks to everyone in SL who has put their hand in their pocket, built or designed something fabulous, or organised an event. Thank you. Thank you very much. It makes us feel a little bit better, knowing that the world is listening.

You can find a list of all the wonderful people participating, here: Autumn and Dakota – you rock.


My photo to go with this blog is taken on one of the beautiful – and I mean BEAUTIFUL – chairs that Tuli Asturias has designed and set out for people to buy at her sim. You can see it here, with details of where to purchase it.


And there are two special events – one today and one tomorrow, which I hope that our generous community will attend: The Valentines Day Fundraising Ball – from 12pm SLT – 9pm SLT today Saturday 14th Feb (if you are on SL time!) Details here:


And the celebrity auction and fundraiser tomorrow, Sunday 15th February 7pm SLT… details here.
