Get Ready to Rock Your Rack – PRESS RELEASE

Rock Your Rack 2014 Official AD

{POSH PIXELS} is proud to be a sponsor in this event.  We fully support the efforts to raise awareness and funds for this cause, as it is something that has hit close to home for us.

What is ROCK YOUR RACK?

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This year’s event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

The 2014 event is on three sims and involves 64 designers including 7 Platinum Sponsors: Barely Legal Couture, Delirium Style, Legal Insanity, Liv Glam, Lybra, Mute. , and {ZOZ}. Along with these designers, 10 Live Musical Artists, and 13 DJs will provide entertainment throughout the two week long Event.

Events during the fundraiser include 16 fashion shows, 10 live musical concerts, a performance by the Dazzler’s Dance Troupe, 8 DJ dance parties, a 10L Hunt, Silent Auction areas, and two different Gacha! areas. Designes will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest and most popular designs donating a percentage as well.

This year’s event officially opens to the public on Monday, September 1, 2014 at 12:00am SLT and will close at 11:59pm SLT on Monday, September 15, 2014.

Together we can make a difference!

About Models Giving Back

Models Giving Back is an agency of professional, certified SecondLife models who give of their time and talents to raise funds for legitimate and verified SL and RL charities.

Models Giving Back was founded in October of 2012 by Jamee Sandalwood after a previous agency dedicated to charity work was forced to close due to the owner leaving SecondLife. Jamee felt the work that was being done needed to be continued and set out to lead the models that were already a part of the former agency into new and bigger endeavors at the newly created Models Giving Back.

To date the agency has partnered with dozens of designers and provided models for runway, print and other functions that support charities around SL.

Rock Your Rack is the creation of Jamee Sandalwood and is owned exclusively by Models Giving Back in SecondLife.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.

Love Who You Love

NO-H8

You love, who you love

My girl, she ain’t the one that I saw coming
And sometimes I don’t know which way to go
And I tried to run before
But I’m not running anymore
Cause I’ve fought against it hard enough to know

That you love, who you love
Who you love
You love, who you love
Who you love
You love, who you love
Who you love

Oh, you can’t make yourself stop dreaming
Who you’re dreaming of
If it’s who you love
Then it’s who you love

My boy, he ain’t the one that I saw coming
And some have said his heart’s too hot to hold
And it takes a little time
But you should see him when he shines
Cause you never wanna let that feeling go

When you love, who you love
Who you love
You love, who you love
Who you love
Yeah, you love, who you love
Who you love

Oh, you can’t make yourself stop dreaming
Who you’re dreaming of
If it’s who you love
Then it’s who you love

I’m all for equality…
Love knows no gender or race, and equal rights shouldn’t either. As a straight white female, my choice of partner (male) is easily accepted…quite frankly ignored or glossed over because it is the acceptable norm. For those who are attracted to members of the same sex, however, it isn’t so cut and dry.   I can not begin to imagine the bigotry, abuse and stigma that is attached to the LGBT community, nor what they must endure as the “un-accepted norm” everyday of their lives only because they chose TO FALL IN LOVE. It is time for the human race to wake up and smell the coffee… no matter your choice of partner nor their gender, it should never be a factor in equality, quality of life or love. After all…we are all human at our core and we love who we love.

The NOH8 (NO HATE) Campaign is a silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska (http://www.bouska.net) and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8″ painted on one cheek in protest.  While inspired by the passage of Prop 8, the scope of the NOH8 Campaign has grown to stand against discrimination and bullying of all kinds. The message of ‘No Hate’ can be interpreted and applied broadly, does not only apply to the LGBT community and speaks to each person in their own way.

Five years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to nearly 33,000 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate. Want to know more about the NOH8 Campaign?  Visit: http://www.noh8campaign.com/

Beautiful Nightmare

Nightmare_010

Pretty girls lie
Smart girls steal
Prideful girls cry
And lonely girls kill

Some of the most evil things start from innocence
Underneath purity is pain
Underneath beauty is cruelty
So be careful
They say the devil is very beautiful

She’s the Master of Hell
The warden to your cell
Taking you to the land where dreams end and nightmares begin

She’s seen her life full of sorrow
Hopefully she won’t die now or tomorrow
She can look at the fire and continue to stare
And feel pain you can’t possibly bare

You live in her dreams
A place full of screams
It has no end
It takes your life and forces upon you things you can’t comprehend

It’s an evil carnival, a twisted fair
It shows you’re weak and easy to scare
It’s full of torment and despair

So good luck and farewell
Come see what lies in your cell
Welcome, to my Beautiful Nightmare

Out-of-My-Depth-2

 

Have you ever dreamed that you were naked in front of a crowd and you felt exposed? Or that you were speeding along in a car down a steep slope, and you were pumping the break and you couldn’t stop and you were out of control? Perhaps that you are being chased by some evil force and no matter where you turn or where you run, you can’t get away.  It’s one thing to say I had a nightmare and I was upset by it but thank God it was only a dream. It’s another thing to say “Okay, I had this nightmare, and I’ve been chased by a dark man in a dark mask”. That’s the purpose of dreams, to use them as intuitive prompts, so that you’re not running away from yourself all the time and leading a life that’s driven by fear.

What do these dreams mean? Are they meant to torment or meant to help? Is it your minds way of coping with stress and fear to help you gain better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses? My view is that these dreams are meant to help you in terms of dealing with the terror in yourself so you can come to terms, to set yourself free of the fear and move on with your life.

Thank you for stepping inside my beautiful nightmare and catching a glimpse of the demon who lurks there…heaven or hell it’s hard to know, but to sleep I will surely go….
