One of the best and most generous SL designers, Alejandra Jumanya, known as Mrs Wetherby or Mrs W to her friends, is having first hand experience of the troubles in Venezuela and she's been collecting money in Second Life to help other people out there for a while now. I've had many beautiful free dresses from Mrs W, as have many people, given by this lovely talented lady and now it's time for us to give her a little bit back. Anything you can afford, go over to her shop, buy her clothes and donate to her donation board in the shop, just do it. Just imagine what it's like not to be able to buy food or have electricity! Even a few Lindens will help, let Mrs W know how much we appreciate her and make yourself feel good by giving what you can! Thank you! Wetherby's
New York Times reports:
Step by step, Venezuela has been shutting down.
This country has long been accustomed to painful shortages, even of basic foods. But Venezuela keeps drifting further into uncharted territory.
In recent weeks, the government has taken what may be one of the most desperate measures ever by a country to save electricity: A shutdown of many of its offices for all but two half-days each week.
