So... umm... this is why I'm dragging it up here on In Cold Blood again after promising not to. I promise it will look far better on you than it does me, and there is a good reason for you to want this too. 100% of the sales of this brand new gown "Raven Sparklefairy" by Miamai are going to the Extend A Helping Hand event at Adien sim to provide funds to the victims of the floods in Queensland Australia. This is the only location you'll be able to find this dress, along with a collection from some of SL's most generous and talented designers, and organised by the amazing Sanura Sakai, an artist based in QLD. They have an array of items for sale that you'll want regardless of the charitable intent behind them. All money raised will be going to the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal which you can find at that link if you prefer direct donations.
Just as important as money though is keeping the well being of these poor people in your hearts and minds; although some of the flood waters have peaked we still don't see an end in sight, and there are still many people missing. More than one million square miles of Queensland which is 11000 homes and 75% of the state has been declared a disaster area. It's a long road back to normality, especially as the economy of this state has been crippled for as long as we can see. And with your help they will manage it.
"As we weep for what we have lost, and as we grieve for family and friends and we confront the challenge that is before us, I want us to remember who we are. We are Queenslanders. We're the people that they breed tough, north of the border. We're the ones that they knock down, and we get up again." ~ Premier Anna Bligh.
