SL Illustrated sponsored a week long auction called Bid for a Model, that was participated by thirty ( 30 ) models in SL, these models were from different agencies namely SL Illustrated Models, Face2 Face Model Academy, Sophisticated Models, and Modavia Models. Auctioned Models were, Zipben Aeon, Frolic MIlls, Bianca Vita, Ost Clawtooth, Selena Fellini, Tanisha Withfield, Gabriella Meriman, Lorens Carling, Wynter Kidd, Lile Bikcin, Alyssa Masala, Salvo Waydelich, Poptart Lilliehook, Manoushaz Matova, Madison Sullivan, Mikaela Yifu, Rachael Lowey, Jolanda Sellers, Elise Mersereau, Kamala Hesse, Tula Howlett, DJAteo Kuhn, Krystal Gagliano, Micheal Hynes.

The weeklong auction event was able to raise L$ 101,682.00 coming from different individuals wanting to date the said models. 100% of the proceeds went to WarChild International represented in SL by Rosalie Rothlisberger.

Warchild International sponsored in-world by Rosalie Rothlisberger, is a network of independent organizations, working across the world to help children affected by war. The organization is founded upon the fundamental goal of advancing the cause of peace through investing hopes in lives of children caught up in the horrors of war. More information about this organization can be found at

The event opened last February 16, 2008 at 9am slt, held at the SL Illustrated grounds. The launch was very successful and was attended by around 30 people at a given period that lasted for several hours.

Hand-over of the raised amount and the actual dates of the models with their winners, closed the event last February 23, 2008 that was held at the lavish and posh SLI Angels Club, where the famous DJ Zane Bijoux played romantic love songs for the couples on their date. The closing was attended by the Management of SL Illustrated headed by Ted1 Kamachi ( CEO ), Ariel Lingiuan ( COO ), Madison Sullivan ( SLI Models Director ), Dadaist Gears ( SL Illustrated Editor-in-Chief ), and Stone Klaxon ( SLI Master Scripter ).

My Blog will support every kind of humanitarian project in SL. Well done Ariel Lingiuan. Congrats to all SL Illustrated models and participants of this attitude. I think projects like this need to be more common in Sl. After all we are all humans in flesh and blood and there is a lot to be done out in real Life.
