Our Precious Team is growing!

We have been so fortunate. Billy Debruyere owner of LaModa Model Agency and Studio has come on board to help us with our fashion shows.
LaModa is providing the models, background crew, staging and even donating some packages for our fund raising efforts.
We are delighted and grateful for Billy's efforts in helping make this a successful event. He has helped with promoting this event in many ways and connected us with people we didn't know of that can and will help us promote this event.
"Feed a smile" is on its way to becoming a "Mega Event"
Thankyou so much Billy and a Big Thankyou again to all of our sponsors, bloggers and everyone on board with our event. What a team :-)

Feed a Smile 2010 :-)

Organizing of the "Feed a smile 2010" event is now in full swing. We have been so fortunate to find some wonderful content creators to sponsor and support us. We are still currently searching more as we would love this to be an event to remember.

This event shall be held from 10th July until the 18th July 2010, and during these days we shall have some full on entertainment such as special sales, auctions, freebies, fashion shows and live entertainment (U2 in SL has agreed to perform for us :-)).

Every L$100 raised is enough to give one child, one meal, (LLK have around 500 children in this project)

How does it work?

We are seeking donations of possibly "one off" designs (although we would be grateful for any donation) for the feed a smile event that can be sold and 100% of the proceeds sent to the charity.
Special Vendors will be given out to the donating content creators from the 2nd week in June in which they can place the donated item, with the permissions of their choice, and the picture and a LM and info about their business.
The Vendor is then rezzed at our event place. Whenever somebody makes a purchase the money will go first to the owner of the vendor but because the split will be set to 100% the amount will then automatically be transferred to to Brique Topaz for the charity funds.

About LLK in SL

Since January 2010 Live and Learn in Kenya NGO is also online in the Second Life charity community – Nonprofit Commons. The managers of the Nonprofit Commons go though every detail of an organization’s registration form to assure themselves that it really is a charitable non-profit organization and not just a computer scam. LLK operates from a virtual office where people can come in and inform themselves about our work in Kenya, look at photos and, if an LLK member is present, hold a conversation. There are real people behind all of the so-called avatars, so real conversations are held – as well as meetings – either by typing your message or by speaking over a microphone. A child in Kenya – the orphan, Veronica - has already been sponsored through a Second Life contact – which makes it all worthwhile. When you log in to Second Life type either Brique Topaz or Live and Learn in Kenya International in the search. LLK also belongs to the world-known organization Techsoup which also works in Second Life.
