  1. Visit the Lupus Awareness Fair at Blue Orchid District throughout the month of May to see the bright spirit of SL that connects people through troubling times. The Blue Orchid is run by the sorority Sigma Upsilon Nu, and they have had a presence in SL since 2010. The main contributors to this event are Big Sister Cleopatra Kellman and Shanina Chenaux. This virtual event raises awareness and makes a real impact with donations. Cleopatra and Shanina tell us, “Since 2010, Lupus Awareness has been Sigma Upsilon Nu's charity of choice. We have unselfishly dedicated our time in raising funds and awareness throughout the full month of May. With the help of our SL sponsors, designers, and supporters we raised $1,766.00 last year. As promised, all proceeds were donated to Lupus of America and Lupus of UK.” For those unfamiliar with lupus, it is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue in many parts of the body. Common symptoms include painful and swollen joints, fever, chest pain, hair loss, mouth ulcers, swollen lymph nodes, feeling tired, and a red rash which is most commonly on the face. There are often periods of illness, called flares, and periods of remission during which symptoms are less severe or absent. Research shows that Black women are disproportionately affected by lupus and that they also experience more rapid progression and worse outcomes compared with other groups. This month-long event is an opportunity for people to learn something new and show support for a warm and inviting community. Enjoy a stroll through manicured courtyards while taking breaks to read posters with information on lupus, as knowledge is the power we need to dismantle stigmas and bring about equitable care for all. One street is emblazoned with letters that spell out BLACK LIVES MATTER, with each letter bearing a colorful mural that supports the theme of civil rights. It is reminiscent of Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C. and is powerful to behold. With a fully staffed restaurant, monthly lupus support group meetings, live poetry night, and many more special events taking place this month, we hope that you check it out. Video Production Credits: Draxtor Despres Lupus Awareness Fair at Blue Orchid District The Blue Orchid District is home of Sigma Upsilon Nu Sorority, a RL non-profit organization dedicated to sisterhood and education. The beautifully landscaped region has a fully staffed restaurant, monthly group Lupus Meetings, Live Poetry Night, and much more! Their Annual Lupus Awareness Fair runs from May 1st to 31st for Lupus Awareness Month. The event begins on Sunday, May 1st at 11am PT with an opening ceremony and a Start/Finish Walk.

  2. After being in SL so long I've come to realized that this is a great platform to bring awareness to real life interests. One of my interest has always been about giving back, whether it is time, resources or funds I have made it a fundamental character for my family. I subconsciously brought that same mindset into second life after starting our sorority, Sigma Upsilon Nu. Since 2010, Lupus Awareness has been Sigma Upsilon Nu's charity of choice. We have unselfishly dedicated our time in raising funds and awareness throughout the full month of May. With the help of our SL sponsors, designers, and supporters we have raised $1,856.00 this year. As promised these proceeds will be donated to Lupus of America and Lupus of UK. We would like to thank everyone who participated by attending our events, supported as a sponsor, a contributor, a planner, a designer or just simply forwarded our information. We appreciated all your efforts! See you next year. Because of Covid we've realized that we could and should do more. In January 2012 we submitted paperwork for our 501c3 and moved forward in our decision to maintain The Lupus Awareness Foundation inworld. Our goal is to host support groups in the SL community for lupus survivors as well as family and friends. With the help of informed volunteers & committed supporters, we will be able to increase awareness of lupus, provide support groups & services, rally support for those who are affected by lupus & advocate on their behalf, & raise money to support research & education programs in the US & UK. Here are a few photos of those who supported our 2021 photo campaign.
