Nonprofit Commons in Second Life will not be hosting a weekly meeting this week, since our usual meeting day of Friday July 3rd, falls during the 4th of July holiday observances in the US. Though we won’t be meeting, let’s celebrate this 4th by enjoying some of the videos captured during last week’s Second Life 12th birthday (#SL12B). As part of SL12B celebrations, Nonprofit Commons in Second Life had a week long series of presentations and performances focused on nonprofit uses of virtual worlds such as Second Life.
Please enjoy some of the amazing people and projects that make up NPC! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBbCCN1eQ2t5Ewfk5OgkMHNnoY8Xx0gAh

Thank you to everyone who presented last week at SL12B, all those who attend our NPC weekly meetings and other events, and the nonprofit, social-good community of folks who inhabit these virtual spaces. Happy 4th all!
The mission of the Nonprofit Commons in Second Life is to create a community for nonprofits to explore and learn about virtual worlds, foster connections, and discover the many ways in which nonprofits might utilize the unique environment of Second Life to achieve their missions. Nonprofit Commons is sponsored by TechSoup Global‘s Caravan Studios.
