AN INVITE TO FASHION DESIGNERS
As you know, HIV and AIDS still impacts the lives of millions throughout the world today. Its impact in urban areas is often understated publicly, but the effect it has on those it touches is profound, transforming lives, destroying health, and devastating families.
Second Pride, the organization that creates Second Life’s largest pride celebration, is holding a fundraiser for AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), to raise funds to increase awareness of the disease, assist those living with HIV, and service the community, while researching its impact on various segments of society.
WHAT IS FASHION PRIDE?
Fashion Pride is an exciting shopping event that will take place from March 10th through March 17th 2014. It will include fabulous shopping, fashion shows, entertainment events, and a final art auction to raise funds for both the Second Pride main festival in June and ACT.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO BE PART OF FASHION PRIDE?
We are asking for donations which will purchase your stall space for the duration of the event. 100% of the store cost will be donated to help Second Pride, an entirely non-profit organization, hold the pride festival in June. This important festival helps the LGBT come together for fun, information and camaraderie. In addition, it provides a Pride event to those who may not be able to attend one in RL due to real life oppression and animosity.
This can be paid at the time of your confirmation directly to the account of the event, Second Pride.
We will have three available store sizes you can choose:
-Large (100 prims): L$1,500
-Medium (50 prims) L$1,000
-Small (20 prims): L$500
VENDORS AND SPLIT INFORMATION
We are asking that 100% proceeds of at least ONE EXCLUSIVE ITEM be donated to ACT (for exclusive item we mean a new and never released item). Funds for this item will go directly to an avatar run by the charity.
Second Pride is supportive of diversity and as such we have not selected a theme for this event. We want to see your creativity in your exclusive item.
All sales from the remaining items in your store are yours to keep, of course, we do appreciate any further donations you wish to make to ACT or to the upcoming Second Pride event.
For your exclusive charity item, we will happily provide you with the vendor.
