Those in the Relay for Life in real-life may be familiar with "Bid Me Bald" in which someone offers to shave their head if so much is raised. Second Life also has "Bid Me Bald" events in which an avatar offers to go without hair for a while, how long depending on how much was raised. But with furry avatars, going without head hair doesn't seem so drastic when you're covered in fur. So the mostly furry Team Sunbeamers has had variations of the "Bid Me" theme. And this year will be no exception. This week, three volunteers have put their virtual looks on the line for charity.
Two of the events are "Bid Me Tiny." Team Captain Rita Mariner is offering to go as a pint-sized white rabbit for a while. For every 5000 Linden dollars, rounded down, donated into the tiny kiosk, she will be limited to the tiny white rabbit (and other tinies) for that many weeks. For example, if 14,999 is donated, she only has to spend two weeks looking at people's kneecaps while 15,000 means three.
Liska da'Lantros (LiskaDaLantros Resident) is the volunteer for the third bid me event, "Bid Me Deer." For every 4000 Linden dollars, rounded down, the vixen will be made "into venison, I mean a deer" for that many weeks.
Go Sunbeamers! Go Relay!
