An amazing charity event starts on June 1 on the Isle of Alchemy. I’ll just copy and paste from the official notecard so I don’t mess things up.
“Greetings Ladies and Gents,
There’s very few of us that haven’t watched or heard about the earthquakes in Japan or the post disaster efforts by numerous organizations and volunteers. I’d like to cordially invite you to take even a small part in a charity we’re organizing in Inworldz for Second Harvest Japan (or 2HJ).
What is Second Harvest Japan?
Second Harvest Japan is a charity that collects and distributes food and supplies to Japanese families in need. When the disaster occured, they quickly turned into an emergency response group. Currently donations are for both disaster relief and regular organizational activities. Please keep in mind your donation will be directed to where it is most needed.

Second Harvest Japan Releases Disaster Relief Plan
Currently, Second Harvest Japan (2HJ) is using all of its personnel power to work on the disaster relief activity for the people in Tohoku area affected by the Pacific earthquake. Here are what we are working on now: 1) establishing the network to recruit all kinds of items we need; 2) establishing safe and secure routes to deliver needed items to the disaster victims; 3) collecting information about what exactly the disaster victims need. With your support, we will engage in the emergency disaster relief and the reconstruction assistance that will follow the emergency action.
What’s the event?
An entire month long event of fun, community, and the spirit of giving at the Alchemy County Fair! Located on the recently renovated Isle of Alchemy. Train rides, live shows, djs, carny rides, games, funhouse, photo ops, events, and LOADS of items generously donated by the Inworldz community! Explore by yourself, meet some friends, bring your own, or bring a date!
Is this legit?
We’ve been very fortunate to have Virtual Helping Hands take part in this event. They’re a cross grid charity for helping people with disabilities in virtual worlds and a worthy charity in their own right. They have submitted both paperwork and a charity avatar to Inworldz LLC. All donations will go through this avatar and proper documentation will be provided.
How can we help?
Glad you asked! We need you! We need performers, djs, bloggers, tweeters, merchants, builders, scripters, every friggin body! Have an odd object that doesn’t fit in your store?

If you would like to help, either post a response here or contact myself. If you do not wish to register here, I will attempt to relay. It is very important to read at least as we’re attempting to keep all relevant information in one place. Thank you for your time. “
If you have a shop or own land you should grab a board and put it up for your visitors and customers.
I built something that will be released on the Alchemy County Fair. I’ll eventually sell it in my shop, too, but the first sales will be for charity only.
I’m not going to tell you what it is, it’s not even completely finished yet, I had to add some decoration here and there but OMG it was SO much fun :D
So I hope to see you at the Alchemy County Fair!
