WOW what a day~!!!

I can’t thank everyone enough for all their help and donations for the walk!

We raised $125,510L, twice the amount from last year!! And that was just in world, I think a few of you went and donated right at buddywalk.org

We also had almost 200 avatars show up in support.

I thought that doing a Second Life Buddy Walk would be a completely different experience than a real life one. But it’s really not, it was great meeting others who where parents, aunts, uncles, siblings of someone with Down syndrome. What is different is that there were many there that didn’t know much about Down syndrome, the Buddy Walk or NDSS. I know a few of my friends learned a few facts after taking the walk in the garden and that was so great to hear! Awareness is a big part of the walk.

The venue will stay up for a few weeks so please feel free to stop by and still do the walk if you weren’t able to yesterday. Donations will also still be accepted.

There are also subscribe kiosks for the Down syndrome group around so please join to be on the list to find out about next year’s festivities. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Unico/165/216/807
