Asking for donations for "Relay for Life"

Hey folks, crosspost time.

This coming weekend, July 20th I think, the SL Surfing community will be hosting "The Flynn Sheridan Invitation Surf Contest - a Benefit Event for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life." Flynn is a founding member of the Second Life Surf Association (SLSA) and is fighting cancer himself. But this is a general fund raiser for the Relay for Life. Seeing at that, there's an entry fee of L$500 to get in for the contest. Being fairly broke in world, I can barely afford this one. HOWEVER, I want to make this into something a little more than just paying L$500 to get into a surf event.

That's where all of you come in.

I'd like to ask for people to donate a little bit of Linden to the cause. I'll work on something with the event organizers, but what I'm thinking would work best is donating money to me, and also IM me in world or here to tell me "I donated L$(whatever) for the RFL fund!" so I know it wasn't a random sale in my store. L$500 is the minimum, but they're offering incentives for people to go over the minimum. I'd really like to show the SL surf community what furry is about here, and I'd like to blow their freaking minds.

The event will be on Surfline Aloha (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Surfline%20Aloha%20Rezzable/25/141/32) on Saturday the 21st, 10 AM SLT. Registration deadline is Thursday, June 19 at 11pm SLT, so I'd like to get hopping on this ASAP. If you donate to the cause, I'll put together a beachwear freebie package for you with some swim apparel, possibly a limited edition wetsuit as well.

I just updated my post. I've got sales at Onrez & SL Exchange as incentive for people to fork over $125 at least. If tey want to donate more, I certainly won't say no, but $125 is a good starting point.

I should clarify - you're talking L$125, rather than US$125?
