The fifth annual Second Life Christmas Expo will run from December 3 to 14, 2015 and is a mega event that raises funds for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). 100% of registration fees, sponsorship fees, kiosk donations, hunt, raffle, auction, and vendor donation items are paid to Relay For Life of Second Life. Relay For Life of Second Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and is a virtual version of The Society’s signature real life fundraiser – Relay For Life.

The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo will consist of both holiday and non holiday items from some of the best creators and designers in Second Life, spread across 8 sims! The Expo will feature special events, including live performances, djs, skating parties, a Snowman Building Contest, Hunt For the Bells, Naughty Or Nice, a Christmas Tree Lot, holiday raffles and gotchas, and of course photos with Santa! The Holiday Of Hope Ball, for the 5th year running, will be held at the Christmas Expo. And returning to the Christmas Expo as a special event this year is the Avi Choice Fashion Awards.
Since there are so many activities happening within the Expo, I wanted to highlight a few in today’s post. My dear friend, the jolly elf Earth Nirvana of Whimsical Happenings is participating in the Christmas Tree Lot with an exclusive festive and spirited upside-down garden pot tree complete with presents under the tree. The Lopsi Tree is a modern, unique and whimsical approach to Christmas Tree! 100% of the proceeds of the sale is donated to Relay for Life of Second Life, check it out.
Another fun event at the Expo is the Hunt for the Bells ’15, a $10L hunt with 100% donated to The American Cancer Society. This year there is a photo contest (12/5-12/15) for the Hunt for the Bells hunt, with a grand prize of $10,000L giftcard with other prizes for runners-up. To enter you must use at least 10 hunt items, submit a NC listing the items to Earth Nirvana and send full perm picture to Leala Spire for voting & social media placement. Please keep the picture PG & tasteful. Good luck! In my photos above I’m using Spyfalle Holiday Party Paper Lanterns in the windows from the Hunt for the Bells (hint: “let it go”).
So many creators have designed 100% RFL donation items including the Sage Nice or Naughty Sweater dress (pic #1 & 2) available for males & females. Sage has also created the exclusive Noel Sweater Dress (pic #3) for 50% donation available in a variety of colors. Gloria is wearing Oceane Body Designs Pretty 1 pack eye make-up and lip color also a 100% to RFL. Finally, the Cookies for Santa green snowflake draped table is from Outside the Box, with 50% donation to American Cancer Society. The SL Christmas Expo offers daily live entertainment, tons of events, hunts, freebies, exclusives all for a great cause. You have until December 14th to stop by and explore all the wonders of the season!
