For Immediate Release: Out Shop Cancer 2021

This year, the Second Life Strides Out Shop Cancer event will include several new additions to its usual shopping opportunities. These include a special ACS (American Cancer Society) Marketplace online shopping directory, an Out Shop Market for vendors to sell their Out Shop items, a $25L grid-wide hunt, as well as Super Sale items offered by merchants for 50-75L.

Out Shop Cancer is a main store and marketplace shopping event and a signature Strides Campaign in Second Life in support of the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs and research which started in 2018. Now in its fourth year, the event continues to grow. The goal remains the same – to raise funds for breast cancer research and support while driving traffic to merchant’s places of business.

All proceeds from this event go directly to the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs and services.

The Out Shop event will run from October 1st to the 31st and shoppers will be able to find a list a of merchants on the Out Shop website at http://www.outshopcancersecondlife.com/. They will also be able to find the shopping directory that lists all of the items for sale as well as the bloggers and information about pop-up events through this website. Merchants will be selling their Out Shop items in their stores across Second Life, on Second Life Marketplace, and at the Out Shop Market.

The Out Shop Market will be set up from October 15th until the 31st on the land behind the Strides building on ACS Island.
