This year’s Christmas Expo is bursting full of bright and merry delights - all for a good cause. There is a shopping event with over 170 Merchants giving a portion of proceeds to the American Cancer Society, over L$155,000 in gift certificates given out via raffle, entertainment, a hunt, and much more - including some exciting things from the Lab.
From the official press release:
“The American Cancer Society in Second Life® and Linden Lab, the Society’s partner in the fight against cancer, announced a BLOCKBUSTER AUCTION as part of Believe In The Magic of Christmas, the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo.”
That’s right - we’ve partnered together to bring some new and exciting things to the expo. The first-ever Ebbe Linden bear will make his debut at the expo. Because this is a charity event, this bear will be available for a donation of L$250. All donations will go towards the overall expo goal of $20,000 USD.
In addition, as part of the auction, Linden Lab is providing one lucky bidder with 6 months of Premium Membership and a 4th Edition Linden Home. The theme of these new homes is Victorians! You can be one of the first to glimpse them at the expo.
Speaking of homes .. there is also a Lights of Hope Decoration Contest. You can donate to a kiosk in front of your favorite decorated home - all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society
The Christmas Expo runs from December 5th through December 15th, and more information about the auction, schedule of events, and the American Cancer Society is available on their website.
Head over to discover the magic of the holiday season and the joy of giving.
