OK, now this is important: Together For Sway

I just got back behind my computer when the splash screen on my Firestorm notified me of a series of events and a general effort to help Sway Dench, an SL content creator (among others, she has created the Cookie Bears with which many people are familiar) who is facing the extreme cost of healthcare. While I have every reason to get all political and write a diatribe on how the Randian sociopaths who consider such basic and fundamental human values as solidarity, altruism, compassion and kindness to be “evil” deprived millions of non-privileged people of healthcare (which is an unalienable human right), I’m not going to. I’m going to focus on the issue at hand.

Information crossposted from the blog “Together For Sway“:

The situation at hand:

Sway Dench has been a fixture in Second Life for years. She creates some of the cutest furniture and decor, and is famous for her Cookie Bears. Recently, she learned that there is a benign tumour in her brain, and in 6 – 8 weeks, she will go into surgery to have it removed. While our dear Sway will make it through this, unfortunately her finances may not. She will be out of commission for nearly 6 months, and her inworld store is her only source of income.

Together for Sway was created to help this sweet woman deal with her time in need.

Various designers have banded together, and will set out their items (new or otherwise) all in the same venue. 100% of profits will go directly to Miss Dench.

Any inquires should be forwarded to either Valena Vacano, Damien Fate, or Ephedra Loon.

That’s it from me. I know my blog is just a tiny little corner of the web, dealing usually with a niche subject matter that many of you may not be really interested in. But here we have a person in need of our help. And it’s Christmas. In the name of kindness, love, altruism, solidarity and whatever supreme being you happen to believe in, do what you can to help.
