Love Donna Flora; fashion for a cause

SL peoples love shopping for a cause, as do RL peoples for that matter, and while it’s just as subject as RL causes to the usual “why do you put energy into THIS when there is also THAT?” sort of questioning, I still think it is a Great Thing.

The other day (was that just yesterday?) Michele passed me a notecard about Love Donna Flora, a sim-sized event to help with the medical expenses of one of our creators.

The Love Donna Flora event will open on July 25th @ 12:01 AM and close at midnight on August 11th. It will feature work from more than 100 creators with proceeds going to Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora.

The arrival point point is in the center of the sim, which is a little confusing at first, but follow one of the nice cart-paths out toward the edge, and you’ll come to the main path, all around the sim, lined by picturesque carts selling all manner of things.

And it’s in a good cause!

(Look for the purple DNF logo signs on the signs; the contribution rate varies; many are 100%)

Okay, with all that out of the way :) here is the real reason for the post: a picture of me!

Tiering Up

(A Tier In My Beer? Little Tierdrops? Tier-stained? I considered a bunch of tier / tear puns for the title, but none of them made quite the right kind of nonsense.)

Anyway! I decided to give myself a little present and tier up (again) to the quarter-sim (plus 512m2) level. I bought one little plot in the Rise adjacent to some of my land, that I’d had my eye on, and then found that there was no more land for sale in the sim. Natch!

There was significant abandoned land, so I went to the URL in the parcel descriptions, followed the instructions to open a ticket, and after a few days got a very nice reply from Dee Linden saying that she had put a set of abandoned Rise parcels for sale to me for the standard 1L/m2, that should just about max me out.

And they did! Here is the ownership map of Hughes Rise currently (green is me, red is Other, the couple of mysterious dots are some particles or something photobombing):

Tiered up again!

Note how nice and contiguous most of it is, and how I now have land on both sides of Wellington Road in the corner there. Fun!

(Note also that Up is East on that map, because for some reason that is always how I look at the Rise.)

I think I have like another 48m2 before my tier is full; maybe I will donate it to some worthy group (if that small amount wouldn’t be insulting and I can figure out how), or buy a tiny parcel in some totally random place just for grins…

I haven’t done anything with all the new land yet, nor do I have any specific plans, but sitting around looking at how many free prims I have and rubbing my hands together and cackling is nice. :)
