Have you spent any time in the virtual world called Second Life? It is amazing what you can do today with a computer and an Internet connection!
I recently spent some time experimenting with Second Life. One of the organizations I discovered during my virtual travels is Cheerful Givers. Check out the picture of me (Rog Cleanslate) looking over their Second Life location.
Cheerful Givers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing birthday gift bags to children that are living in poverty or without a home. It is a great concept. They discovered a critical need and they took action. They organized it so that anyone can participate in some way. Some of those ways include:
- Donating items
- Assembling gift bags
- Raising and/or donating funds
Check out the Cheerful Givers web site at http://www.cheerfulgivers.org.
They’re currently planning a virtual walk in Second Life as a fundraising event. I plan on participating. You should also consider helping Cheerful Givers in some way as well. You’ll be glad that you did.
