STAND for JUSTICE: A fundraiser in Support of Black Lives
June 5th – 30th
WHAT IS IT?
Stand for Justice is a fundraising effort in SL dedicated to raising funds that will be used as a split donation to Black Lives Matter, Black Visions Collective, Campaign Zero, the National Police Accountability Project, and a Split Bail Fund benefitting 38+ bail funds nationwide.
All items will be a 100% donation, collected by an avatar created for this purpose, StandforJusticeSL Resident.
The fundraiser continues to accept designer applications and will allow new items to be set out for the duration of the event, so keep checking back because there may be some new stuff!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
That is the easy part. You get to shop, all while supporting the cause.
100+ designers have set out items, and 100% of all the proceeds go directly to the cause. This is a non-profit event.
You may also donate direct if you like, there is a kiosk setup at the event just for that purpose.
WILL I KNOW WHERE MY MONEY GOES?
Yes you will. The organizers are being 100% transparent with the entire process.
They have chosen 5 charities to split the proceeds between. As donations are made, there will be receipts of them published so everyone may see exactly where the money went.
To see how much is being raised, make sure you look in world. They have a kiosk on the desk at the event that shows live updates, both in $L and in $USD.
Be sure to join the in-world group to stay up to date with the event. There will be an auto invite when you go to the event.
Spread the word. Even word of mouth is a huge help in supporting the cause.
There is a free shirt for all at the event as well so pick that up when you go.
