Virtual Relay for Life raises Real Cash

I was reading on the Professional Fundraising site how a virtual Walk-A-Thon for the American Cancer Society, hosted on the virtual community Second Life raised over $200,000!

This is the 4th year they have linked with Second Life, so they are clearly early adopters who are now seeing the benefits.

I know of so many organisations that host Walks similar to the Relay for Life that the ACS hosts and Ijust love this idea of a virtual walk taking place on line.

Take note and take action.

  1. On a similar note, have you heard of World Run Day? It’s an international day of running and charitable giving. For more info. and/or to start fundraising for a charity of your choice, have a look at http://www.firstgiving.com/worldrunday.
