Friends Fighting Cancer

Strong!  Together!

Making wishes come true!

From Monday April 19th to Sunday 25th 2010, thousands of Second Life residents and creators are coming together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.  Friends Fighting Cancer (FFC) have transformed nine sims of Second Life into a fantasy wonderland:  the Fantasy Faire 2010 to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).

The Fantasy Faire 2010 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world.  A week of commerce, special events, live music concerts, exclusive items auctions, RFL ribbon hunts and fundraising to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.  Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from top SL Fantasy Creators including Fantavatar and Moonstruck, Evie’s Closet, Fallen Gods, Mer Betta, Sassy Kitty, and many, many more!

This nine sim event is bringing together such fantasy genres as Fairy, Elven, Magic, Mermaid, Goth, Demon, Vamp, Neko, Tiny, Sci-Fi and more!  FFC’s goal in 2010 is to raise $15,000 USD for RFL of SL. The Fantasy Faire 2010 will also offer visitors an opportunity  to celebrate the survivors of cancer, remember and honor loved ones lost, and to fight back with the American Cancer Society.

You can view some of last year’s beautiful sims on YouTube, featuring our great environments and creators from Fantasy Faire 2009, shot by the talented kyota Spitteler and also a fantastic interview of Zander Greene, our Creative Director, showing scenes from across all the sims as he is interviewed fo Life On Line and discusses the background to the Faire:

Life On Line is viewed by more than 90,000 people around the world on over 30 websites. So the Fantasy Faire was fortunate in 2009 to have them as our Media Sponsor.  You can watch a specially edited version of the June 15th broadcast which was filmed on  the Fantasy Faire grounds and features an interview with Creative Director Zander Greene:

Fantasy Faire 2009 Creator kyota Spitteler, one of our Mer Friends, captured the sights of the Faire.  She shared her view of this special event, sim by sim on YouTube:

To join us this year just search for “Fantasy Faire Central” on the map – open to the public 19th – 25th April, 2010.

As with all events this size, there will be lag. We have done our best to keep it as low as we can but we’ll also need your help. Be considerate of your fellow shoppers…keep prims and bling in your pocket…turn off your AOs and other scripted HUDs… You will find the going easier for yourself.   Low prim clothes are available at each teleport point so that you can show your support for The Relay for Life and help everything run smoother PLUS our secret Fairy Godmother will be dropping FABULOUS prizes on people with really low Avatar Render Cost and Scripts for doing such a great job at keeping the lag down!.
