Chloe has just changed the Time Set jewelry set out for free for a limited time. The simple, entwined silver hearts and chain are beautiful and perfect for the season or year-round wear.

This lolita dress by Moonshine Clothing is not free (L$225). However, I have paired it with the Time Set and mentioning it because of the mission behind it: named Victoria, all proceeds from this dress go towards the Red Cross to help the victims of the Victoria Bushfires in Australia. This inferno, reported as started by arson, has already claimed 170 lives (at my last check), and thousands are without their homes.

Don’t think you can make a difference? The donations and purchases of SL residents already earned enough money to pay for a designer’s new heart. We saved someone’s life. And we can do it again.

Time is precious, especially when people’s lives are entwined together. The number of registered SL users is over the population of New York City, and the number that can be online at one time can be compared to an active town. Love is not limited to those we are willing to kiss- we love our family, our friends, and, sometimes, our neighbors. While St. Valentine’s Day may have originated as a marketing scheme, my hope is that we reach beyond the commercial and touch others, even if it is by extending a hand through the grid. Today, our neighbors in Victoria need us.

In support of National Wear Red Day, Lemania Indigo Designs is offering A Woman’s Heart gown for L$1. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in America today, and the red dress is a cornerstone symbol in promoting heart health, transforming this issue from just a men’s matter to everyone’s concern. Show your support for the survivors and promote hope for the fighters with this elegant, jeweled ensemble. Be sure to pick it up before it disappears at 8:00am SLT, Febuary 7th (this Saturday).
