What is Twisted Summer of Love?
A mid-summer sale event. We are using this event to help give something back to the community and we've chosen to support RFL of SL for that goal. The event will have a cap of 60 merchants, will run from June 1st to June 30th, there will be gachas, weekly parties, a mini hunt at the event (which is optional for merchants to participate in or not), a raffle (also optional for our merchants to choose to be part of or not).
Why a summer event:
Because, it's about time, don't you think? Really, we've heard for years that you just can't get enough of twisted, and want more! Add to it that there is a long break between Spring and Fall that is also a slower period of the year we thought we could add something fun to. So we've added a summer sale event, it has a theme, that theme will be different every year to keep it fresh and new. We're including the typical gacha options, adding an optional mini hunt with some of the funkiest cubes going, adding in weekly dance parties and even doing something to make the world a better place with the event by adding the RFL of SL vendors and kiosks to the mix.
Why we're adding a charity to the mix:
Twisted has become one of the most amazing communities in Second Life during the over seven years since the first hunt! With such a large group, we have noticed our merchants are very active in giving back to the community and because we have noticed that we do have such a large socially conscious group of merchants we wanted to show that we as a group were also!
Why we chose RFL of SL:
There are a LOT of reasons to choose to put our support behind RFL of SL! The simplest is that the group as a whole has a very diverse demographic, which could make finding a single charity that could be something that everyone or even a majority of the members could support extremely difficult. Cancer is something that does not discriminate, it touches all nationalities, all races, all religions, all segments of the population in some way, it effects so many people that while I won't say everyone (because the minute I do someone will correct me) nearly everyone is affected by it in some way be that as a personal struggle or that of a friend or family member. It really did seem to all of the organizer team like a fit that made the most sense.
What to expect:
There will be a minimum requirement for merchants involved for number of charity vendors, it's not a large number, and the rest of your booth can be used for anything else you sell that fits the event guidelines. There will be an optional mini hunt, you don't have to make a prize but we do encourage merchants to take part in this, if you do we will ask you to let us know how many cubes you placed out, we won't require or give hints but we will be posting how many prizes are available to be found. There will be a raffle merchants can donate to, with a single winner at the end of the event. The proceeds of this will go to RFL of SL. There will be weekly Entertainment events/parties held at the sale. We will be providing gachas for those who like to include those. For further information see the Merchant FAQ and Merchant Rules.
