Save Our Pets! (and some sad goodbyes)

There's a fundraising event going on right now called SVPAP Project Rescue, and I'll admit that I'm having a bit of a problem with the language barrier in the notecard describing it.

The gist of it is that it's an effort to raise money for the Sociedad Valenciana Protectora de Animales y Plantas (SVPAP). I plugged the Website into Google Translate and garnered that we'd call it the Valencian Society Protection of Animals and Plants, and that this nonprofit organization — headquartered in Valencia — sponsors several worthy animal welfare projects, including feline sterilization, pro-animal rights legal advice, a veterinary clinic and a refuge for abandoned animals. Relevant links to more information are below.

I went over to the venue today and got several cool and very affordable things (see credits below).

In some sad news, two stores that have been around since I was a noob are closing.

To me, Long Awkward Pose — and more specifically, its creator Dove Swanson — is the pioneer of the SL pose industry. (Laugh – is it an industry? It is now.) I discovered the joy of poses through [LAP], so it saddens me to learn that the store will close June 17. Until then, all pose sets there are discounted at 50 percent off or more.

DV8 is also closing; unfortunately I don't know the exact date. I'm not sure how to describe DV8's style — let's go with "cyber sexy." I can tell you that my inventory is jam-packed with the store's wild hair, kick-ass boots, vivid clothes and generous hunt prizes. They will be missed. At the moment, EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 50L, so run over there and stock up on DV8's distinctive fashions before it's too late.

I just learned about DV8 and it's terrible! They were very big behind the SLRDA, too. I need to get over there and grab more colors of those boots you are sporting.
