Just now some really exciting and wonderful news was published on the Fantasy Faire website:
This years funds raised on the Fantasy Faire in Second Life will go to a specific destination, instead of to the ACS (American Cancer Society) in general, for the first time in the history of the Faire.
‘The American Cancer Society and the Kenyatta National Hospital have turned to us, to the Fairelands, for our help in something that has never been done before. This is history in the making, and we’ve been asked to play a vital role in it.’
‘Forty five million people live in Kenya, where cancer is the third leading cause of death. The Kenyatta National Hospital is the only place where most can go for the treatments they need to fight back against their cancer. But many don’t go simply because it is hard enough to travel the hundreds of miles to get to those treatments, and then they have no place to stay. ‘
‘The American Cancer Society believes that WHERE you live shouldn’t determine IF you live. They are asking us – they’re asking you – to help give Hope a Home in Kenya.’
Let us be their shelter. Let us be their hope. And let’s go get their backs.
We’re all builders now.
