Swirly Cones

Welcome folks, to the Albero + Cioccolata Gatcha Fest Part Deux, also known as the TOSL Non-Fat Prim Food Feast.  Keeping in tradition with my previous release, I made more primmy summer treats that's easy on the scale and the wallet.

As you will see for yourself, I had a little too much fun creating flavors (and naming them) I actually lost track of how many there are, but it's somewhere in the 100's.  Each and every swirly cone is delightfully textured and with its own unique name.  So, if you're a prim foodie and you like cheap tasty thrills, head on down to the Albero Event Park and grab a dozen or so cones!

Shoe-shoe-shoe Fair 2011!

Thank goodness blogger is back up after a prolonged maintenance check! Alas, I am a couple days late posting this, but do not worry, my friends, your beloved shoe fair lasts until May 27 so you still have plenty of time to shop!

Phoenix Chapman and the other amazing organizers behind the annual Shoe Fair have once again pulled off an amazing event. One of my favorite things about Shoe Fair and working with Phoenix (and what brings me back year after year) is that they always choose to collaborate with an excellent fundraising partner. Like last year, Shoe Fair 2011 will be fundraising for Soles 4 Souls, an organization that collects both new and used shoes and gives them to people in need. Children and adults all over the world have received shoes from S4S... often times these shoes were the very first pair they have ever worn or owned.

50% of all TOSL sales at the shoe fair will be donated to S4S. Here's a direct link to the TOSL booth. Please see the Shoe Fair official blog for more info about the fair and other designers!

*Juicy Lips* Gatcha Gatcha!

Gatcha games are here again!  For the cash-strapped, the Albero+Cioccolata Gatcha Festival is an excellent place to win some amazing (and amazingly inexpensive) prizes from very talented designers.  I had such a great time shopping around the different gatcha machines that I almost forgot to write this post :P

I realize it's not quite summer yet, but what the heck... who doesn't enjoy popsicles and artificial food coloring stained lips all year round?

Each *Juicy Lips* prize set includes an animated popsicle AND a lip/tongue stain tattoo and only costs 40L per play!  Everything is transferable so you can swap colors with friends.  Keep playing to win the rare rainbow prize.  So bring your spare change, round up your friends and get ready to play!

Gatcha fest is taking place at the Albero+Cioccolata Event Park.

Project FUR Japan

Project FUR Japan just opened tonight, so I'm not *too* late getting this post up :)  Following the successful Pacific Crisis Fundraiser, hundreds of SL's talented creators have come together again to help the animals victims of Japan.  You, too, can show your support by shopping! 100% of your generous contribution will be donated to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS).

Blazin Aubret, Sanura Snowpaw, Tristan Careless and the other organizers of Project FUR Japan have poured their hearts and souls into putting together a truly amazing event.  The touching backstory behind Project FUR and information about more ways in which you could help can be found on the official Project FUR blog.

TOSL has created a special *Animal House* exclusively for benefiting the animal victims of the Japan earthquake.  The animal house is available here on the Project FUR sim in Plumhill.  We've also set up a few vendors in the TOSL main store for quicker access (and less lag).  Thank you so much for your support!

For Our Friends in Japan

On March 11, 2011, Japan was devastated by the Kanto Earthquake, a 9.0 magnitude quake, followed by a deadly tsunami that destroyed a great part of eastern Japan and left many homes and lives in ruins.  Moreover, Japan now faces the threat of radiation exposure following multiple explosions at a nuclear power plant that endangers both citizens and foreign rescue workers.  Getting food, water, and other aide to those affected by the crisis will be an incredible feat, and our friends in Japan will need all the help we can give.

The following is a list of fundraisers in SL.  We're trying to keep the list current, so if you know of more, please send a message to Quintlan Quimby!

Linden Bears
Created by Linden Labs.  You'll receive a  cuddly linden bear for your donation of 300L, 1000L, or 3000L.  All donations will go to the Red Cross.

Pacific Crisis Fundraiser
From March 16th - April 10th.  Proceeds will go to Americares.  Various designers from across the grid have contributed their creations to this event.  TOSL is a part of the PCF event and will be donating 100% of all profits to help the victims affected by the earthquake and tsunami.  (I should note here that while some vendors will donate 100% of your contributions to the charity, others will only donate 50%.  Personally, I have a big problem with designers making money off of an EMERGENCY fundraising event and I urge everyone to look closely at the donation percentages before you buy anything.)

Move for F of Japan
F is for the Future(未 来)
F is for Fundraising (募金) 
F is for First life (ファーストライフ)
... And F is for Friends.  Move for F is an ongoing fundraising event that features many of our favorite Japanese designers, and more are joining!

Help Japan in SL
Another fundraising event with proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross.

TOSL has made 6 new items exclusively for fundraising for Japan.  These items are currently available through the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser and in the TOSL main store and Albero store.  100% of the proceeds will be donated.
