Cancer charity holding 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' in Second Life

Top stories, Virtual Reality


At last, a reason to log back into Second Life that doesn’t involve getting spammed by a brand. UK charity Macmillan Cancer Support is holding what it says is the ‘World’s Largest Coffee Morning’ this Friday within the virtual world, at its new virtual cancer information centre.

It’s been created for Macmillan by Second Life creative firms New Business Horizons and Phoenix Film & Television. Visitors to the centre will be served virtual coffee all day, while giant coffee cups are being placed around the Second Life world to attract donations, with every donor getting a free virtual t-shirt by way of thanks.

Once all the cups have been washed up (or whatever the virtual equivalent is – deleted?), Macmillan’s centre will be a venue for people affected by cancer to visit and access a wealth of resources. If you’re a Second Lifer, you can zap to the centre by using the SLURL below.

  • Dear Beloved,

    Calvary greetings to you, I am Mr. Anderson. M. Tubman, from London born on the 12th of May 1943, i am not married and had no children I have been bedridden for two years, and there has been no medical improvement on my health, I have been suffering from a wicked helmet, called Cancer of the Lungs for over five years now, visited all medical homes, herbal, and churches all to no avail.

    On the 13 of August 2006, my medical report was that I will not survive the helmet and my doctor advice me to put my home in order and be in expectant of death at any time, I resolved inside of me to sell all my companies, properties and inheritance and deposit it in a Security Company here in London, on the 24th of August 2006 I contacted my lawyer to sell all the inheritance, properties and companies and deposit the fund which is FORTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS ($45M DOLLARS) for me in the Security Company which he did and gave all the necessary security access and documents that covers its safety, before I die I have this last wish from God to help me sow this money as a seed into the lives of the needy and helpless, motherless, fatherless, widows and widowers, and the only aid to help me reach them is via the Charity homes, and that is why I have contacted you, trusting that you will help me achieve this dream before I die, please don’t use this money for your selfish reason.

    Beloved, all I require from you is your personal information which includes as below;
    Phone Number:
    Fax Number:
    Company Name:

    So that I will ask my lawyer bar. Hamzar Mantins to start preparing the papers that will enable you get the fund from the Security Company, this is my last wish on the planet earth, help me accomplish it so that my heart will rejoice in the lord as I depart, thanks.

    Yours truly,
    Anderson M. Tubman.
