Tuesday was the final day of the #ForMax event, which was organised in an amazingly short time by Charlotte Bartlett, Sophia Harlow, and Blazin Aubret to raise as much money as possible to help Maxwell Graf, one of the most highly-respected SL content creator, and his RL wife, Lyyric Fei. Max and Lyyric found themselves suddenly in an appalling, heart-breaking situation that rendered them homeless through the callous and selfish behaviour of other parties. Award-winning SL architect Apple Fall and the organisers of the Shiny Shabby event also offered generous assistance; Apple Fall donated his sim, and Shiny Shabby offered the booths for the event.
The “Going To The Max” event to benefit renowned SL content creator Max Graf and his wife, who goes by the name Lyyric Fei in SL, is well under way and will conclude on the 10th of this months. The event, which was started by Charlotte Bartlett (owner of Scarlet Creative) and is co-organised by Sophia Harlow, Blazin Aubret, and Callie Cline, takes place on the Apple Fall sim, kindly donated by award-winning SL architect Apple Fall, with booths courteously donated by the organisers of the Shiny Shabby event. A publicly visible Facebook page has also been set up to spread information about the event.
Hello everyone, and sorry for the delay, but you know how RL is. Only a few more hours remain until the #ForMax event in support of Maxwell Graf and his wife Lyyric Fei opens its doors. You can see numerous teasers at the event’s Facebook page, and there have been a few changes: The sim is sponsored by famed and extremely talented SL architect Apple Fall, and it’s located here (rated: Moderate). Again, the event will take place from 3 October to 10 October, and will not only feature shopping, but live events, raffles, and more as well.
In the meantime, I’d like to give you a little teaser myself, with some products I was given that will be sold at the event: A Halloween-themed costume from 1313 Mockingbird Lane, consisting of a specially-coloured version of their Malifae top and skirt set, wings, and horns, as well as a specially modified and coloured version of their Betty Boop slide mules; and Dahlia‘s Bali septum ring set.
And a close-up of my face, so you can see the septum ring…
Many thanks to both Tequilla and June Fallon, owners of 1313 Mockingbird and Dahlia respectively, for sending me these items to blog. Kudos and thanks to everyone involved, from the organisers and sponsors to the participating creators, and, of course, everyone who will attend the event! I hope to see you all soon at the event!
The “Going To The Max” initiative to support Maxwell Graf through the ordeal he and his wife (Lyyric Fei) are going through (which he detailed here) is gaining momentum by the hour. The organising team consists of three people now: Charlotte Bartlett, Sophia Harlow, and Blazin Aubret. More and more talented content creators are joining the cause every hour. As has already been mentioned in my previous posts on the matter, the event will take place between 3 October 2017 and 10 October 2017 on a region sponsored by Callie Cline, and the location will be determined soon. The organisers of Shiny Shabby have graciously donated the booth that will be used by merchants on the event. The event will not be only about shopping; there will also be raffles, live music and other happenings, and there is also a Facebook page for it. You can also follow the hashtag #ForMax on social media favoured by SL users. In the meantime, you can help out by shopping at Max’s stores, both in-world at his Rustica sim, and on the SL marketplace. I can personally vouch for the quality and style of his wares.
On Friday, I bore to the SL blogosphere the news of a notice published on Plurk by Maxwell Graf, one of Second Life’s most respected content creators, known mostly for his medieval-themed furniture and decor, which he sells through his brand, Rustica (marketplace store, in-world landmark, blog). In said notice, he explained how he and his wife were getting evicted from their home through the callous behaviour of her siblings. Very quickly, people rallied around to assist him, which is admirable and very heart-warming and encouraging in a very dark era. Already, Charlotte Bartlett of Scarlet Creative (in-world store, marketplace) fame got to work over the weekend to organise a fundraising event for him.
