As you all know, I am Daphne Molinari. I've been a resident here for over 4 years and have watched many of you grow and prosper here in SL. I have started a fund raising organization called Autism Speaks in Second Life. With the huge success of Relay for Life, which I have been a supporter of for the past 2 years, I felt it was time to bring a new worthy cause here.

With the help of many friends here in SL it's time to launch and start raising awareness about Autism and the many levels on the Autism Spectrum to try and make a difference. There are many groups in SL that bring awareness about Autism, but this is the first that will work hand in hand with Autism Speaks to raise money for research and funding for families that have children, teenagers and adults in need of therapy.

What I am looking for is designers and content creators willing to donate items, for events that will be taking place here in world. This weekend kicks off an event hosted by the SL Starfleet.

Many of you have recieved a folder that I passed out, with a Kiosk and some literature about Autism Speaks. I am proud to say that with just the placement of that kiosk in world we've already raised about 60k L to donate.

If you would like to donate items please send them to Daphne Stephanopolis, (my alter ego) or Daphne Molinari. Also if you have any questions or would like to sponsor an event please do not hesitate to contact me in world.

Thank you in advance for your time! I look forward to hearing from you.

In Memory of Ginny Talamasca.

My deepest sympathies go out to Katterina, his family and friends, and those who had the pleasure of experiencing his work.

I never really had the chance to get to know Ginny as I would have liked to. We often get so busy with our lives here as well as the real world, and sometimes take for granted that when we log back in, things may not always be as they should be.

I regret not taking that moment to reach out and say how much I had admired his work, thinking that hey...I'll send a note tomorrow. I know he will be missed very much by those that were close to him, and my thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of sorrow.
