Avatar Mod, Women's Nails, For Sale, Proceeds Going to Texas Hurricane Help

Often when there's a natural disaster, someone does a fundraiser of some kind in Second Life to raise a few dollars to help with the recovery effort. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, which has brought a massive amount of flooding from a staggering amount of water being dropped onto the Texas coast, resulting in at least 47 dead as of the writing of this brief. Recovery is being described as a "multi-year project."

In Furry Fashion chat, I heard about a furry avatar mod, the "Houston Texas Mod - Toro" by "Project Mayhem." SynodaMae Sonnenkern states, "100% of the funds raised from this mod will go to the H-E-B Recovery Efforts. If you need proof or want to donate directly, click the following link. H-E-B is the largest grocery chain in Texas and has made MAJOR headway in the relief and recovery efforts for Houston, Rockport and Corpus Christi." In the link, H-E-B says "100% of donations will be distributed to the American Red Cross, area Texas Book Banks, Salvation Army, and Texas Search and Rescue/Cajun Navy."

There is one other item on the Second Life Marketplace aimed at Hurricane Harvey relief, though the cash is going to one family that "lost everything." Rowan Carroll of @rOrO is offering a set of nails, with a promise the money will go to help her friend's family.

Please Help! An SL friend and her family has lost everything in Hurricane Harvey. I can’t do much, but I can make nails. Kioko loves mermaids and often plays one in SL. In her honor, I’ve created these nails. ALL money is going to her and her family to help them get through this. Every little bit helps. Plus the nails are pretty cool too, right?

Do you the readers know of any other Second Life items for sale with the cash going to Hurricane relief, or any benefit events?
