Much love and thanks to you all!
Lexi Zelin, owner of AngelRed Couture, has recently had the heartbreaking diagnosis of Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is struggling to meet the costs of medical bills and other expenses as she battles for her health. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of knowing Lexi personally, but I want to add to the voices of love around her with my warmest hugs and very best wishes for recovery.
Toxxic Rhiannyr & Heather Smithson have worked breathtakingly hard to organise an outstanding fundraiser where nearly 350 designers have gathered together to offer some amazing exclusive designs in the hopes of easing Lexi’s financial worries at least a little. I’ve said before that seeing the Second Life community pull together to help someone is one of the most beautiful and inspiring things I’ve witnessed in my years as a resident and seeing so many people come together has been a shining example of how much love there is in all our worlds.
With so much to choose from, I’m sure you’ll find something at The Lexi Project you’ll want to bring home and 100% of all those sales will go directly to Lexi. If you prefer to donate directly, there are donation kiosk available at the fundraiser and in many stores on the grid, there are also links for more information and for Lexi’s gofundme page at the bottom of this post.
For my small part I have released an exclusive version of my owl set that will only be available at this amazing fundraiser; after it finishes it will be retired never to be sold/given away again.
Find ‘Lexi’ owl and a whole wealth of other designs at The Lexi Project:
Also, I read this on Marge Kinson’s (owner of The Artist Shed) post and I wanted to share her words here because they are just so perfect:
“I can promise helping a fellow Avatar is cool and it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. I can also promise that helping a fellow human being beat insurmountable odds will make you feel like a superhero.” (and you should totally go and read the rest of the post and see the awesomeness she has for you at the fundraiser yourselves!)
