So. Now that the Oiling Festival is past, what can we turn our brains and talents to next? How about starting to get some ideas together for Relay for Life of Second Life?
I’d like to have a preliminary meeting fairly soon to get the ball rolling and ideas bouncing around. It’d be *after* Easter (April 8)–I’m sure a lot of us are busy with preparations for that. But what would be a good date/time for folks? That next Saturday (April 14th) should be quite open for me, at least until about 7:00 pm SLT. Sunday (April 15), I’d be around from about 11:00 am to about 7:00 pm SLT.
(April 15th? Already this soon? Must do taxes! *flails*)
*cough* Anyway, this meeting would mostly be for getting ideas together for fundraising, since that’s what I’m in charge of. (Though we could also certainly cover the building aspect, if people are interested in that. Just don’t expect much useful from me. *wry grin*) I’m thinking about things like:
1) June auctions. We’ve had build/item auctions in the past. We can go over examples of what’s been done before, and see if people are interested in donating such for another. Also, at the June ball, we’ll auction off people and their building/texturing/other talents. We’ll need volunteers for this, and/or ideas about who to approach.
2) Convio fundraising. We can tie in real-life fundraising to our team fundraising through Convio, and have friends and family donate. We need volunteers to help with this! You can either join as an individual yourself, and have folks donate to your page (which can be tied to our team results), or donate directly to our team page. We can go over more of the details at the meeting.
3) Teams-R-Us. This year, the RFL of SL folks are putting together several events that are meant for all teams to participate in, if they want. One of them, a Mardi Gras weekend, is happening this weekend. (I thought about bringing this up earlier, but it was too close to Oiling Festival, so I rather doubted we could pull anything together in time.) There are other events coming in the next few months–would we want to participate in any of them?
4) Other fundraising ideas?
So let me know what dates/times work for you, and I’ll set things up. Go Relay!
