Jamm for Genes in Second life - how we went - WOW
By Alan Hargreaves-Oracle on Aug 03, 2008
The event ended up running for about 27 hours instead of the original 24 and I am humbled to have been a part of this.
At the time of writing this blog entry we have raised a bit over 600,000 Linden dollars, when this is with drawn it will come to over US$2000, and a bit more than that in Australian Dollars.
A huge thank you not only to the artists who donated their time and brought their fan bases with them, but to everyone who helped out and especially those who showed up, listened and contributed.
I've put some photos up on Flickr if anyone wants to have a look.
What can you say, but "Wow, well done everyone".
This money will be going to Jamm for Genes in support of The Childrens Medical Research Institute, an independent organisation committed to unlocking the mysteries of disease whose scientists investigate conditions such as birth defects, cancer, and epilepsy.
