April 15th-May 15th
I am always getting involved with events that really make differences to peoples life, as before with the Summer of Love Fair, I intend to really home in on this fantastic event. Whenever I see those awful adverts on my television of those poor children who have to travel for hours and hours and such long distances, or are even forced to drink the sewage water or filthy water that contains disease upon disease- Tears roll down my face, and my heart just crumbles. Why should anyone have to live like that? I think a lot about my lifestyle and how much I felt guilty of taking our fresh water supply SO much for granted!

The Little BIG shop fair/event need your amazing support in raising money for a brilliant cause: “The Water Project” A project which should touch your hearts dearly as the funds to help bring clean water to Africa and India.
This event will be complete combination of: little stores, big stores, artists – all for the cause of bringing water to poor parts of the world. Many small stores aswell as major labels will participate in the event, which will be held at a sim donated by Maddox Dupont of KMADD Enterprise: http://www.kmaddenterprise.com. Each boutique will house 2-4 big and little stores, mixed together. Artists in Second Life will be designer and creating boutique windows.
Nearly 1 billion people don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. This is a world wide issue. The reason we picked “The Water Project” is because we recognize the need for change and the need to help those who are suffering. With our help billions of people can get clean and safe water into their homes. This will cut down on sickness , lack of education, and poverty. How can we not lend a helping hand to this cause? The money you use in Second Life and at the fair for the specially made items themed for the cause will be donated to the cause. We have a goal of 500,000 lindens which roughly translates to US$1,992.34 dollars. Below you will see how these funds can help a village gain hope.
* $10 – One Person’s Clean Water
* $50 – Give a Family Clean Water
* $250 – Water for a Classroom
* $1,000 – Purchase a Well Pump
* $6,500 – Fund an Entire Project
SL Community Goal
The purpose of The Little BIG Shop Event is to encourage designers to share their talents, network, and become both mentors and learners in a collaborative community. Established big shops help out little shops by mentoring them with things like how to manage, network, or how to build and make quality products. Events like the Little Big Shop allow these great chances for smaller shops to let the world know about them.
