Shattered Homes, Unwavering Faith

Completely wiped out. The violent Typhoon Haiyan not only destroyed cities but also took thousands of lives; men, women, elders, children – Haiyan showed no mercy. As I watch the news, I knew that I needed to help. There must be some way I can reach out even if I am thousands of miles away. I am proud of the Second Life community for standing together and making an effort to lend a hand. It takes so little to help those in need. These shirts created by Fuzz Lennie are sold for L$100 each and comes in male and female versions. L$100. That’s about 41 cents (in USD) according to the current SL Linden Exchange. A mere change can make the difference between life and death for those affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. You can purchase the shirts and make additional donations at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Zenshi%20South/18/60/21.

It doesn’t stop there. If you feel like giving more, tons of RL organizations are accepting donations and I am linking three of them below:
