How to Show Your Support for Ukraine in Second Life (Including the Latest in Free/L$1 Clothing for Your Avatar)

2 months ago 53

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to support Ukrainian-owned businesses in Second Life, here is an up-to-date spreadsheet of 28 such businesses where you can spend your Linden dollars to support Ukrainian content creators.

In addition to shopping at Ukrainian-owned SL businesses, there are a number of fundraising events which are taking place across the grid, with some or all of the proceeds going to support various legitimate Ukrainian charities. One such event is Love to Ukraine, running from March 5th to 19th, 2022 with all proceeds going to NBU (the National Bank of the Ukraine), Voices of Children, and the Ukrainian Red Cross. Another is run by Two Moons Gardens, which is donating the proceeds of their Inspiration Garden event to the International Red Cross for use in their care of refugees and victims of acts of war. 

If you don’t have a lot of Linden dollars to spend, you can still show your support by picking up freebie and dollarbie outfits and accessories from various in-world stores, as well as on the Second Life Marketplace (I compiled a first list in this blogpost; this post is an update, with new items I have found since the first blogpost was published).

Let’s start off with this free cardigan, top, and long skirt set from Marvelous (all one piece):

(There’s also a free women’s dress and a free men’s Chinese-style robe, both in the yellow and blue of the Ukrainian flag.)

Croquis is offering a free black women’s T-shirt with two designs:

TW is selling this black men’s polo shirt and matching pants for only one Linden dollar on the SL Marketplace (Meshbody Legacy and INITHIUM Kario sizes only):

Here’s a free Support Ukraine women’s tank top by Angel Fae Boutique:

There’s also this tied Stand With Ukraine T-shirt from Twisted Princess (L$1):

Here Vanity is modeling the Stand with Ukraine dress by a store called @#1 (only L$1):

Lost Virtues is also giving away a free Stand With Ukraine dress if you visit their in-world store and join their group, called Lost Virtues Off Script by Kylie, for free (it’s also for sale for L$1 on the SL Marketplace). The dress is sized for Maitreya Lara mesh bodies only.

TinRoof Fashion is also giving away free men’s and women’s T-shirts in support of Ukraine on the SL Marketplace (or you can pick them up at the in-world store; just pay the vendor L$1 and it will automatically be refunded):

And there’s much, much more! In fact, there are over 170 free items supporting Ukraine on the Second Life Marketplace; just click here to see them all.

Finally, if you teleport to WENICE Meadows and Beaches sim (SLURL), you will automatically receive a folder with some protest signs with Bento hand holding poses which should work well with your AO, as well as some small and large Ukrainian flags, plus a few other items:

Slava Ukraini!
