Donation Requirements – Breedables Merchants

* Breedable Merchant Donation Requirements *

The SL Christmas Expo is a Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) approved Mega Event which raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life.  Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and RFL of SL is one of its virtual counterparts. You can get more information about RFL of SL here: http://relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/

In addition to the Event Guidelines and the Merchant Shop Guidelines, the 2016 SL Christmas Expo has specific Merchant Donation Requirements.

  • Each merchant must provide one item or Gift Certificate for our Holiday Stocking Stuffers. You will place the provided Relay For Life Holiday Stocking in your Expo shop, for sale at L$25,  thus increasing traffic to your shop. (This replaces the Hunt For The Bells, but is similar in theory). This is not required, but the Expo shoppers love the mini hunt experience. We will require full permission photos of all items.

  • Any Relay For Life vendor must remain rezzed in your Expo shop throughout the entire duration of the SL Christmas Expo.

This much anticipated single  auction event raises, on average, over L$2 Million ($8,000 USD) annually in support of the  Relay For Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society.  Apart from showing your generosity of heart and spirit to support a very important organization,  it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase your creations to the entire grid!  You may donate more than one OOAK if you wish. 100% of auction proceeds go to Relay For Life. Please register for the OOAK Auction by using the form located here.
