Not only is AICR involved in raising funds internationally in the real world, but more and more we are doing it internationally in the virtual world. On the 10th and 11th January, our Dutch friends at Ghost Lion Events and DX Exchange ran a 2 day music event in Second Life to raise money for AICR. On the 10th Jan the event took place in the City Park in the virtual city of Groningen. 5 DJs took part as well as 4 live acts. The crowds were enormous and at certain times of the day it was so busy that it was impossible to get in.
On the 11th Jan the event moved to the "Best of Rotterdam" event area. 5 more DJs and 4 more live acts played for a total of 14 hours and again the crowds were amazing. AICR representatives dropped in a few times a day over the weekend to thank our supporters and we met lots of new friends. On behalf of everyone at AICR we would like to thank all of the organisers, the DJs and musicians who gave up their time and talent, and the hundreds of people who came along, took part and made generous donations.
