I stumbled upon Creations for Parkinson’s while searching for art galleries. It led me to this video from the Drax Files which is a couple of years old, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth watching.
Fran Seranade, 86 at the time of the video, said “My avatar represents how I truly feel inside.” That’s what I’ve been saying all along!
Barbie Alchemi, Fran’s daughter who made Creations For Parkinson’s, gives an awesome quote regarding the nature of the virtual world as well. “This is reality; it’s just reality in a different form.”
All money taken in from Creations For Parkinson’s is donated to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s. A great example of Second Life being used in a positive way, and a reminder that the nature of our virtual world is entirely up to us.
