Art in Second Liefe 2023 (16) Art for Charity

A few days ago Fly Kugin (flykugin) messaged me. Fly is an artist who I covered in this blog a few times in 2021 (read here for example). But this time it wasn’t to invite me to an exhibition or a new gallery. Fly messaged me to help promoting an event in Second Life.
The event is intended to raise money for earthquake victims in Turkey. The idea is that art can not only please the soul, but that it can also serve a good cause. The artists will donate their art, they get a stand and can advertise. The visitors can purchase the donated art.
The event will take place from April 13th to April 23rd.

Dear Second Life Content Creators and Residents,
Life for millions across Turkey changed forever on February 6th, 2023 Monday at 04:17 am. and 1:24 pm, as two consecutive earthquakes sent shock waves across hundreds of miles. Two earthquakes of magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 occurred in Kahramanmaraş.
At the moment – Feb. 24, 2023 – On the 10th day of the search and rescue efforts, the loss of life increased to 43,556 and the number of injured is approximately 115,000.
As content developers and users in Second Life, we do not want to remain indifferent to this situation. The toll is getting heavier every day. It will take a long time for our homeless, propertyless, and displaced people to recover both physically and mentally, and for Turkey to ease this pain. We know that AHBAP, which we trust and closely monitor its activities, is active in carrying out long-term work. Therefore, we are organizing an event in Second Life between 13/04/2023 – 23/04/2023 to support AHBAP and earthquake victims.
