Diabetes Fund Raiser Campaign in Second Life

I wrote a piece that appeared in the SL Newspaper a few weeks ago about the Second Life group, Bid4aCure. Their campaign is an annual fund raising event in support of a cure for diabetes and it launched in early in June. Late on Sunday afternoon and shortly after the end of Sundays "Goods and Services" auction, the team happily announced that at today's event they'd raised a total of $L 674,227.00. The funds raised will be donated to the both the American Diabetes Association and Diabetes UK. With two weeks to go in the campaign the team is working toward its next two events scheduled for the 27th and 28th of June.

If you've not had an opportunity to donate, there is still time. Sponsors and kiosk locations can be found on the Bid4aCure web site. The kiosks are easy to spot as they're shaped like a hypodermic needle, symbolizing those diabetic's who are dependent on insulin injections.
