Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 15th October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey to a different grid - Inworldz - to explore a very special new event in progress there - Relay for Life in Inworldz, which will reach its climax with a Relay Weekend on the 3rd and 4th November.
Although Relay for Life of Second Life is a huge event and raises millions of Lindens for the American Cancer Society every year, this is the first time that a full Relay program has been run in the much smaller Inworldz grid, with the backing of the ACS, and it's fascinating to see how things are developing there - in some ways very similarly to the early Relay for Life in Second Life events.
We will be talking to some of those involved, and some familiar names from Second Life (and from Relay for Life in Second Life), including Bain Finch, Nber Medici, and the well-known DJ Ayron Dagger, who spoke so movingly about a renewed fight against cancer during the Telethon this July. And we'll be talking to Elenia Llewellyn, both about this event, and about how things are progressing in Inworldz.
This is a really interesting show for people interested in the wider metaverse, and in fund raising and support. So do come and join us at 2pm!
