This year’s SL Christmas Expo is in full swing, even with the Elf Photobomb. Over 170 vendors are taking part across 9 specially decorated sims. Nearly 100 hours of entertainment, OOK and Breedable auctions, and over L$300,000 Shopping Spree & Gift Card raffles are going on including a ball! Every year I look forward to this event. It is for a good cause, cancer research and supported by the American Cancer Society. Like Relay For Life, it holds a special part of me each year and reminds me of my journey. Instead of retelling the whole story and ending up an emotional mess the rest of the day, I’m just going to point you to my original post where I talk about it. You can also hear my story on my YouTube channel.
I take part every year, as I do in RFL, because I know what it’s like when diagnosed with cancer. To feel so much fear that it consumes you. Without knowledge, this fear can overwhelm you. It can consume you. I had never had any surgeries before in my past so I didn’t know what would happen…
I fully think if I had the American Cancer Society to turn to during this time, I wouldn’t have been so scared and I would have had the support that I and my family needed to not be afraid, the knowledge on treatments available before seeing the surgeon, and more. The support groups, the patient navigators, and just the overall knowledge found on their site would have been a godsend. I am grateful that I am part of this event because what we are doing this year… our goal of $200,000 is to help kids get VR Headsets that would give them some form of entertainment while they are undergoing treatment. This is an amazing goal and I am so proud to be a part of it… and it looks like the Elves are happy too.
As you can see, they have photoed bomb my picture at the Expo! I’m wearing the Silent Night Dress from Indigenous Original Fashion Designs available now at the SL Christmas Expo paired with hair from Truth, rings from Vibing and piercings from Kunst. The pose I am proud to announce is from my friend, Tempest Rosca, for her new pose store, Templar Poses. She did an amazing job on her poses!
I hope everyone is having a good season, enjoying family and friends. Loving and cherishing every moment. I’ll see you later, Adventurites! Merry Christmas! ~LA
