2013 STECH: Reminder--ONE BILLION RISING-Feb 14

ONE BILLION RISING-Feb 14, 24 hours, 
starting at midnight Pacific Standard Time 
-
On February 14, 2013, for 24 hours starting at midnight Pacific Standard Time, Second Life residents will join with activists around the world in a spectacular 24-hour dance event for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls
  • A giant 4 sim stage 
  • Allows over 200 avatars 
  • To enjoy the live musicart/info exhibits.
  • Objective: is to raise awareness, not to raise funds.
The Second Life event will take place on four sims: OBR Walk, OBR Strike, OBR Rise and OBR Dance.  The central stage will extend over all four sims.  All the sims have been sponsored by businesses within Second Life.
-
Look for information kiosks with notecards about the event, the organization which inspired it, and how to help people who may be experiencing violence in their life.
-
Near the stage on each region is a gift area. Everyone should stop by and pick up the One Billion Rising goodie box with shirts, hats and bears for everyone attending the event. Sponsors have also been invited to place gifts in this area.
