[15:28] DJ Earnshaw: relationship with organizations in other countries, got help for someone in france by putting in touch with local organization
[15:29] In Kenzo: It does seem to help that there's already an awareness of the "Relay for Life" event outside of SL
[15:30] DJ Earnshaw: sting you cant do bake sales or car wash in sl but you can sell clothing and proceeds to ACS
[15:30] In Kenzo: Two years ago someone threw me in a jail cell inworld....then I was to find a friend to "bail me out" for charity donation to ACS

[15:32] DJ Earnshaw: have not tried wrking in RL with hospitals
[15:32] Gentle Heron: The Ophoenix Foundation helps with access in hospitals and after patients return home.
[15:33] DJ Earnshaw: poppy describes one person accessing from hospital bed
[15:33] In Kenzo: very true Gentle, good point. I met with another org that wanted to do SL healing work from hospital beds and they were afraid that most hospitals would block SL.
[15:33] Gentle Heron: The problem is that most hospitals don't have network accessibility
[15:33] DJ Earnshaw: worth thinking about
[15:33] In Kenzo: "There is a world out there, we have to go out there and open it" -- this is an awesome quote Poppy, thank you.
