Where does your store name come from?
Well, there are two of us – I art and Angel insists that was a good idea and still is. 🙂
So Ever & Angel became Ever An’ Angel
How did you get involved in the Christmas Expo?
It’s been such a part of our SL experience now I don’t exactly remember a time when we weren’t in it!
We were just there in it, had a blast and never quit coming back.
We probably still have an alt parked at the last one or something.
Do you work with other charities and if so what are they?
Yes – the Spoonful Of Sugar Festival to benefit MSF/Doctors Without Borders is our baby.
At this point I have to say something. We were highly inspired and encouraged by RFL and Nuala when we began the SOS. Nuala has, from the beginning, been a huge support and resource of knowledge to me and the SOS and I am so proud to call her my friend. The same is now true for Trader Whiplash from T1. How you both find time to be so supportive of all you do AND help us, amazes me. Thank you!
There is a lot of vying for various marketing events in SL as marketing often is about competition. However, Charity in SL is NOT about competition. None of us can ever do or be a part of them all, which gives that much MORE meaning to the fact that others can and will do the ones we elect not to when we make our choices. It’s good to know those bases get covered while we all work hard at what we do chose to be focused on.
Why did you choose them?
I chose MSF/Doctors Without Borders because I believe that sound medical care is a right not a luxury. I think MSF works at the very core of human life and dignity.
This actually relates for me closely to what ACS does, and I know they encounter each other often in the field. I am fond of saying when we find these treatments, drugs and cures for cancers, lets make sure EVERYONE has access to them. Doctors Without Borders is all about that.
Second Life, a community without borders, seems a perfect platform for both getting that message out and supporting their endeavors.
Everyone has a reason so Why do you relay?
While The Christmas Expo has become such a part of our inworld traditions for the holiday season, It is important to note that charity is often not about the personal experience but rather a sense of collective humanity that runs in us all.
Most of us have lost people to cancer and know many survivors. Our reasons are not likely unique to anyone else’s, but the sense of community from that is even more of an impetus to be a part of such a broad and meaningful fight.
Are you an real Angel?
Yes. Yes I am. Except when I am a unicorn or a professional ice skater or opera singer.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud that there are so few typos in this so far. And my SOS Teammates 🙂
Have you wrote to Santa? What did you ask for?
I have! I hope he can read my typing or I am screwed. 🙂
Who is on your naughty list?
I’m not telling you. BUT SANTA KNOWS!!!
What’s your favorite Christmas Carol?
Okay I don’t know but I confess I love most of it from ecclesiastical or secular. I might be one of the few remaining people who doesn’t get irritated by Christmas music 🙂 But I try not to hum it in public.
If you could have just one wish, what would your heart desire?
That people would be more responsive and less reactive. Myself included.
Or maybe I should just say “chocolate”. Yeah. That. 😉
