2008 Raglan Tiny Olympics – Final Wrap Up & Thanks!


So its been a few weeks since the end of the Spectacular Raglan Shire Tiny Olympics & I thought I’d do a huge Ginormous wrap up post thanking everyone.

First off, our FINAL Linden Total for the Olympics fundraising effort for One.org was 125,325L!
This is a fantastic total considering we raised this in only 3 weekends. Once again, the tiny population in Second Life is minuscule… TINY even! we make up less then 1% of the total Second Life population so to be able to raise what we did is awesome and everyone involved deserves huge props!  YAYYYY! *Kermit the Frog wild arm flailing*

Shortly, I’ll be selling the linden on the Lindex to convert it to real life money to send off to ONE.Org. When its all said and rounded up, this will ultimately be $500 USD that will be sent to ONE. which combined with the previous two ONE fundraising events we did at this years Tiny MardiGras & last years Medieval festival in October of ’07 is a total of $1300.00 USD

That is a lotta Money & will go far in helping people & educating others around the globe!
Once again, Way to go folks! *more Kermit the frog wild arm flailing*
