Purple Day (Relay for Life)

Actually for me, every day is purple day – but this time there’s a reason to be purple other than me being silly.

During (what I call) Relay for Life Season, I always feel like I don’t do enough – especially when the volunteers in SL start up.  I can’t make clothing, and I don’t really build now that things have gotten so complicated that it isn’t merely playing with blocks anymore.  Sure, in RL I walked a few miles to raise a few bucks this weekend on two different military bases – but as soon as I get home and see just how much work everyone in SL is doing I always feel .. well .. inferior somehow.  Then I realized – “Hey!  Buying RFL items help more than I probably realize!”  When JellyBean sent me a SLurl to check out Gala’s RFL item.

When it comes to volunteer work I always do what I can when I can.  Sure, I meant to stay home and write up a post about Gala’s purple skin – but when a friend called me to tell me they were short on people to do the walk I hopped in my car and drove over.   The post could wait.  Life could wait.  There were people that I felt I needed to remember with a candle, a few grueling miles of walking/jogging, and donations I’d collected for the past month.  The main ones being my mother and aunt, but the countless people whom I don’t know who feel just as important to me as they do.

So in honor of my mother who’s been battling stage 4 melanoma (skin cancer) for 3 years – I decided to wear the skimpiest thing I could find in SL today.  “Check your moles” my mother says to me almost weekly.  I do, almost daily it seems – and to support checking not just your moles – but your body (ladies self breast exams are the key to detecting breast cancer early!) I wore the least amount so anyone could ‘check my moles’.
