Starting this Weekend: BoobieThon

9/30/11  at 1:38 PM
The 4th Annual BoobieThon in Second Life starts this Saturday, October 1st (and in real life, so does the 10th Annual Blogger BoobieThon), both aimed at raising funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Over the years thousands of dollars have been raised forin both worlds.

In Second Life, a week of interesting, fun, and, at times, irreverent affairs for you to enjoy as the Saving Second Base committee members educate about - and raise money for - breast cancer research and treatment. You are all invited to join as many events as possible!

Please note, that as the BoobieThon is a celebration of all things mammary, some of these events are marked as MATURE, and there is nudity in some of the art on display.

It's That Time of Year Again !!!! 2012 SABC Submissions Notice

9/17/11  at 6:39 PM
Hear Ye Hear Ye !!!!!



2012 SABC Submissions Notice


Yes, it is that time again! Can you believe this is the third year for the calendars? First, a little history, for the new residents...
October is Recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in America, and back in July 2008, the staff of the Consulate was knocking about fund raising and awareness ideas, when the idea for a calendar came up. Now, if you know the people who were at that meeting, it would be obvious who mentioned Shirtless O'clock. One thing lead to another, and now we are gearing up for the third year of taking it off to raise eyebrows, awareness and funds.

Breastcancer.org is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the most reliable, complete, and up-to-date information about breast cancer. In past years, we were able to donate L$30,000 (at last year's exchange rate, that was $120 USD) to the cause. Every little bit helps, and with your help, we can do more this year.

The shots not selected for the calendars will be included in the coffee-table book, so everyone will be represented somewhere. You may - and indeed, are strongly encouraged - to submit several different poses. Seasonal poses might increase your chances of being included in one of the calendars, and general poses are always welcome for the book.

Your inclusion in either depends on the submission fitting the technical requirements:

1) Submissions should be e-mailed to magz.kam@gmail.com.

No submissions should be sent in-world. Please make sure to include your name with the e-mail.

2) These should be 2048 x 2048 SQUARE PNGs. (Best to choose "Save to hard drive" and select "Custom" to get the proper 2048x2048 shot.)

3) Please keep the composition TASTEFUL - Art, not smut, please.

4) No Minors. Diminutive adults are fine, but we wish to stay legal with this. Legal-age avatars only for values of the American legal system (18 years old or older), no exceptions, not even for time travellers.

5) Submissions are to be sent to magz.kam@gmail.com

BEFORE 6:00 pm SLT on 1 October 2011. LATE Submissions will not be considered.
Cheers,
Magdalena Kamenev, SABC Calendar Editor
