ΣΥΝ 2014 Lupus Awareness: Businesses Banding Together For Lupus

MAY IS LUPUS MONTH!!
BUSINESSES BANDING TOGETHER FOR LUPUS!!

… It is that time of year again to rally up supporters to participate and support our month long “Band Together For Lupus” campaign.

Over ten years ago, no one spoke of lupus, there was little awareness and understanding of the signs and symptoms and very little investment in research.  Approximately 1.5 million Americans have lupus – men, women and children. Lupus is an acute and chronic (lifelong) autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ system in the body. It is complex, and no two cases of lupus are the same. The money raised helps provide support services, emergency financial assistance, educational programming and funding for research to find better treatment and most importantly, a cure.

This year, it is our goal to raise L$200,000 (lindens) to fight lupus. We are asking the business owners in SL choose a sponsorship package by going to Marketplace  and help us meet (and exceed!) that goal, and give people with lupus a brighter tomorrow. 100% of your generous donation will be converted over to US Dollars and then will be donated to the Lupus Foundations of America and the UK. These donations will assist with life-saving research, education and advocacy initiatives to bring an end to lupus.

In recognition for your donation, your business logo will be displayed on all marketing material, posts, website and blogs as well as any advertisement and interviews during the month of May. We also will ask if you will display our “SL Businesses Band Together For Lupus” texture in your store, business, club,etc.

We, the Sorors of Sigma Upsilon Nu SL Sorority thank you in advance for your support.
Together we can take steps to bring hope to millions of individuals affected by lupus!

Sincerely,

Soror Cleopatra Kellman, Founder, Sigma Upsilon Nu SL Sorority

Too “Big” for the Box – An SL Model’s Point of View

There have been many perceptions of what a “great black model” should be on this game. Some say that a black model should have a certain skin, certain shape, hair, and dress a certain way. Depending on what type of model you strive to be, this “box” may apply to you. Instead of going into what a black model is on Second Life, let me tell you what a black model is NOT:

We are not limited to just one size. Please get out of the mindset that if you can’t fit into standard sized mesh clothes, that you are not model material. Some of the best print models I have seen inworld are not what you call in “model shape”. Some of the most successful black bloggers are not confined into this “under 50 waist” shape. Also, being a “black model” in the black SL community does not mean that we have to always fit the stereotypical “thick girl” shape either. We all come in different shape and sizes in RL, so please don’t limit us in our Second Life’s. Just because a plus size avatar doesn’t fit your “fashion world”, does not mean she doesn’t fit anywhere else.

We are not available in just one flavor. We come in different shades of browns, some darker than others. Get out of your “Shadeism” mindset and see the spectrum of colors around you, and how each shade is beautiful in its own way.

We do not just look good in “African Styling” or “Urban Styling. Even in RL modeling and print ads, it seems as if black models are always used for more traditional African looks, over anything else. Don’t put us in this box!

We are not lazy, late, and not dependable. I can’t tell you how many times I have been reminded more than others about rehearsal because they felt as if my avatar’s skin color translated into me being “late” or “lazy”. Those traits are not just based on one’s skin color. I’m sure that “late” and “lazy” has no racial preference.

We don’t have to live up to the many stereotypes of our race. Often times as black models, we feel as if we have to have certain features to fit in – and others may expect us to look and act the way stereotypical black women act. This is not true. Be You and do what makes you happy!

We are not to be overlooked! Regardless of how you feel about the African American person in RL and SL, one thing is for certain – we are not going anywhere, we are beautiful, and our money/lindens spend just the same as any other avatar!

There are so many things that black models; heck even black women on SL are not, which could take all day to list. The bottom line is this:

We all come to Second Life to do something, or be something. One of the wonders of this virtual world we live in is the freedom that it gives us to simply just BE. Don’t taint the beauty of our individuality by being so small minded and putting people of different races or beliefs in a different box. As for me, I choose, and will continue to live outside of the box. Will you?
