Ondoy/Ketsana Typhoon Relief

You’ve probably heard the news, but last weekend’s rains had caused flood waters in my area to rise and turn many cities, and major thoroughfares into rivers causing untold damage, killing people and displacing hundreds and thousands of people.

I’ve set up donation kiosks, that I received from Shai Delacroix, in all my stores. I’ve also set up some vendors whose proceeds will be donated to Red Cross.

I usually set aside a color alteration in my clothing designs to serve as a future vendor for charities or as prizes for hunts. These clothes will not be re-sold for personal profit.

The dresses are priced between L$200 to L$300, and if you’re feeling extra generous you can donate some more at the Red Cross donation kiosk (it’s that red box with the sign on it). Please help, every little bit counts.

The Ondoy/Ketsana Clothes’ Vendors are available in my Main Store.

For those who want to donate outside of Second Life™,  you can donate to http://www.redcross.org.ph/ or refer here:

    I actually have an office mate who took a whole week off because she was actually a senior member of Red Cross.

    She said she has actually already ridden a Blackhawk once when a previous typhoon hit.

    Currently, some Chinooks and Blackhawks are on standby for the upcoming stormS.

  2. Those things can be pretty amazing (and so is your co-worker btw), and I bet the experience was something that she’d tell her grandkids about definitely. (^^)
