Bid4aCure raises 1.7 million Linden dollars at Second Life to help American Diabetes Association (repost)

I am reposting it because it makes me feel good seeing people acting and reaching their goals when a health issue is in question.

Welcome to Bid4aCure.org and thank you

for taking the time to visit our website.

Bid4aCure is an effort by a group of concerned residents of the popular online virtual world of Second Life to raise both awareness and contributions for the real-world organizations: The American Diabetes Association and Diabetes UK. This June we held our third Bid4aCure benefit drive and it was our most successful one yet, having raised over 1.7 million Linden dollars! Our deepest appreciation goes out to all of our Sponsors and those who donated so generously to this effort.

If you want to know more about the benefit events that took place during the month of June 2009, click the Events link above.
