The Lexi Project
a charity event benefiting
Lexi Zelin • AngelRed Couture
July 26-August 9, 2015
The Lexi Project, a collaborative fund-raiser event founded by Toxxic Rhiannyr & Heather Smithson, created to bring SecondLife brands together in hopes to raise money for one of our own, Lexi Zelin / Owner of AngelRed Couture. As many have probably by now heard, Lexi has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and is in desperate need of funds to assist in paying her medical bills / expenses as she is unable to work. Lexi is only 28 years old, mother of one beautiful little girl and plays an important role within SecondLife by creating high quality, full permission mesh apparel, paving the way for many people in the virtual world to have the freedom of opening a store.
The Lexi Project has grown to approximately 350 supporting brands, ranging in a vast number of fields from apparel, decor, full permission, poses, skin, hair and so much more. All of which can and will be found at this event and all on one region. We have received a HUGE response from the grid, many offering helping hands and services showing nothing but pure support to Lexi. We want everyone to know, it is all very much appreciated.
The Lexi Project is scheduled to open its doors on Sunday, July 26th @ midnight slt. Each brand participating will have a minimum of 1-2 new items, 100% of the proceeds from sales go directly to an event account, opened by Lexi Zelin.
If you’re interested in how to donate, there are many options available to you. Lexi has started a Gofundme Account page, she is accepting direct Linden donations to her main account and has also made a donation kiosk that can be rezzed inworld. To obtain the donation kiosk, you can join the AngelRed Couture Group and find a copy inside Group Notices. Donation kiosks will also be available to accept lindens at the Lexi Project.
AngelRed Couture Group –
We thank you all for your support & speedy actions to this situation as all this information has developed rapidly over the course of the last week. Lexi is over the top appreciative to all that is going on around her, but is also very exhausted as she has been through several surgeries already and just received a port in her chest prepping her for chemo in the coming weeks. We do ask that you please respect her time online, if you see her, respect her privacy so she is able to rest with ease and not be bombarded by all that is happening. It’s very overwhelming for her, as she did not expect this large of a response.
Thanks again so much from the bottom of our hearts, if you wish to share this blog or information it is welcomed and encouraged as we move forward to our opening day. Many people have inquired about what they can do to help aside from donations and we ask that you help keep the marketing drive alive on all social media outlets, inworld groups, popular blogs and so forth. The more people we can reach, the more we can bring in for Lexi & her family.
