    "CREATIONS FOR A PURPOSE - CURE FOR PARKINSON'S". Is a meaningful venture to raise money for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Please join us for exquisite shopping and our many fun activities.(www.teamfox.org/goto/creationsforparkinsons)The Creations For Parkinson's sim, built by a mother, daughter and son team, is a top quality venture to raise money and awareness for MJFF on one of the most beautiful sims in SL™. This is a permanent location, not a temporary event.The sim will raise funds for MJFF through a variety of methods, including a 50/50 sales split with designers in the shopping area; live music events; various social activities and donation boxes, which will be set up around the sim for visitors to donate to the cause."We have no over-head here," Creations for Parkinson's spokeswoman and daughter Barbie Alchemi said. "Our family contributed to cover cost of the tier for this sim, which means 100 percent of what is brought in goes to Team Fox, The Michael J. Fox Foundation's community fundraising program. After 2 years in Second Life, my brother and I felt a desire to give meaning and purpose to the hours we spent in-world. Our dad died with Parkinson's and our mother has it now. To quote her 'I may have Parkinson's, but it does not have me.' At 85 years young, she has entered Second Life and is thrilled to see herself running and dancing again. This project is a creation of love and will continue to become even more beautiful over the years.""Those of us in Second Life can have fun while knowing we are making a difference in the real world," said mother Fran Seranade, 85, who was diagnosed eight years ago following the death of her husband who was also diagnosed with Parkinson's. "Those who are affected by Parkinson's can learn about SL, a world where they can be free of physical limitations." Utilizing the Second Life platform, the sim is removing several limitations of providing more information on Parkinson's with its permanent, easily accessible Parkinson's education center. It also allows visitors to participate in fundraising efforts 24/7 in normal activities, such as shopping and attending social gatherings. In fact, this type of fundraising is a unique experience for Team Fox."What makes the Team Fox program so unique is that our members take something they are passionate about and find a way to turn it into a fundraiser," Team Fox Officer Miranda Lanzillotti said. "This is certainly the case with Creations For Parkinson's. In the six years that the program has been around, we have seen everything from pancake breakfasts and golf tournaments to art auctions, endurance events and garage sales, but we have never seen a Second Life Team Fox fundraiser."Creations sim owner &amp; MEDIA CONTACT: Barbie AlchemiSim Designer DB BaileyFashion designs created by Eshi OtawaraMachinima created by Sophia Yates Machinima Film ProductionsMusic - Hand on The Torch Us3
