Dress And Bald For A Week For RFL - Mental Health Awareness Retreat

Dress And Bald For A Week For RFL


Mental Health Awareness Retreat bidded 10k Lindens to have me wear a dress and go bald for a week. All of the money went directly to relay for life. So far we have managed to raise $45,657L for relay which is $183 USA dollars. Above is a collage of all the dresses I wore this week *chuckles*. Mission accomplished!!!!

Mental Health Awareness Retreat relays because cancer affects people mentally as much as physically. Depression is very common with a diagnosis of cancer. In fact, 1 out of 4 people will be diagnosed with depression after being told they have cancer. 

There shouldn't be any stigma attached to getting help with depression. Through out these months while we relay, we will provide information and resources for those who are battling cancer or are caregivers and are affected mentally.

We are also raising money for relay for life in second life until August. Here is the location of the Kiosks inworld : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Labor%20of%20Love/173/68/22

We need to let people know they are not alone. It is ok to reach out for help <3
