The first 500,000L donation has been made. It came out to $1833.50 USD once all the fees had been deducted. See the previous post for an accounting of that. But here is the official notice that it went into the NBCF portal. The rest will be donated in 30 days.
What an amazing year! We blew our previous record for donations out of the water by over doubling the amount we will be donating this year. $4400 is already in the online portal, from direct donations by people through some of our fundraising partners.
Inworld we raised over 1 Million Linden! That is approx $3800 USD after all the fees associated with removing the funds from SecondLife to donate.
here is the total just two hours before close –
My account still has a limit on it even though I ask every year if they would allow me to remove it all at once and donate it, and that never seems to be allowed. So, having said that, the first removal is already in process to add to the portal :
As soon as the donation is made – usually takes about a week – I will post that receipt here. It will be going into our portal with the NBCF.

ROCK YOUR RACK 2021

9th Annual Rock Your Rack Event is on the way!
Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 12% of women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.
Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music, Art, Dance and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.
This Year’s Sim Sponsor is Digital Farm Systems. Other sponsors include Cute n Cuddly Breedables, Designs by Soosy, Kultivate Music Management, LOPO District, and Rapture.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation
The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.
