Team Diabetes of SL and Kultivate Magazine are teaming up to present The 2016 Winter Showcase from December 8, 2016 until December 18, 2016. This Winter Showcase will feature art from various SL community members, as well as merchandise from an array of inworld merchants. Proceeds will go to Team Diabetes of SL, an organization whose sole focus is to bring awareness and dispel myths associated with diabetes.
According to the World Health Organization (as circulated on Team Diabetes of SL notecards inworld), almost 400 million people worldwide are affected by diabetes. For this reason and more, a group of caring persons who are affected by diabetes personally or who have very close friends and family members with diabetes, decided to create Team Diabetes of Second Life (as circulated on Team Diabetes of SL notecard).
In addition, Team Diabetes of Second Life is an official and authorized team of The American Diabetes Association, demonstrating a keen link to RL. This, along with their alliance with Kultivate Magazine, offers a reputable connection to a real world issue–all within the cusp of the Second Life community.
Though the 2016 Winter Showcase will officially open on December 8, 2016, The 2016 Winter Showcase was kind enough to open its doors to the SL press two days prior to its official start date. In addition to allowing the press preview coverage, The 2016 Winter Showcase was gracious enough to provide free blogger gifts to press members who came by. That, along with having access to discount prices from vendors and artists proved not only beneficial to the press, but to the public as well.
To demonstrate just how beneficial it is to the public when press members are invited to The 2016 Winter Showcase prior to its opening December 8, 2016 date, The SL Parade has not only included a slideshow, but a list of all the vendors and Winter Showcase Landmarks to help you easily navigate around this gorgeous event.
