Welcome to the NPSL blog!

We blog about non-profit organizations and how they work in Second Life – to collaborate among themselves and with each other, engage with their publics, raise funds, teach, learn and further their real-world goals.

You'll find ideas, case studies, successes, failures and lessons learned. From the basics of SL to sophisticated tips, as long as it has a non-profit slant, it's welcome here.

If you're putting Second Life to work on behalf of the non-profit world, and you'd like to add your voice to ours, great! Check back soon for details.
