Winter Ball Tomorrow, 1 to 3pm SL time
The Winter's Majesty Ball will be held tomorrow from 1 until 3pm SL and you can TP to the lovely location on Shengri La Love from here. The build is a snowy, sparkly winter wonderland. While you are dancing under the stars to music provided by Benton Wunderlich you will have the opportunity to benefit a charity the residents and friends of Shengri La are working to support this holiday season. At the event Shenlei will offer a limited edition snowflake frock, sold only at this event. In addition there will be a tip jar and your contributions will go directly to help CRY's programming.
I have written about CRY-America before. CRY is a registered 501(c)3 (cryamerica.org) that works to develop programs for underprivileged children both in the US and in India. The reason we've chosen to support CRY is because of our ties to the apparel industry, which is one of the worst offenders in using child labor to manufacture products. Shenlei Flasheart wrote about why this is so in one of her blog posts here.
The gown I am wearing in the photo below is Shenlei's newest creation. It is called Majestic and is available in 5 or 6 luscious colors in her shop Debutante. I am showing you this lovely dress because it makes me feel like a princess but also to give you a hint about the quality and detail you can expect in the snowflake gown. You really do not want to miss this frock.
I don't often ask people for things as I find it uncomfortable to do so. So please understand that is it hard for me to ask for your support. I realize this is a busy time of year and you probably have errands to run and social obligations tomorrow. We all do. At the same time, taking a little bit of time to relax with friends and support the important work of people who are advocates for vulnerable children is a great way to spend some time.
So, if you can find the time I respectfully request your support tomorrow afternoon. Please come, tip, and buy the incredible snowflake gown for yourself or as a gift for your friends because all proceeds go directly to CRY.
Thank you in advance for your support and happy holidays.
