Last Friday, September 30, 2011, we got introduced to the Avatar Charitable Trust, a new initiative to fund various arts, humanitarian, educational and general welfare causes in Second Life and the real world. Ms. Lillie Radek , operations director at the Trust, was kind of enough to drop by and tell us about their work.
