To benefit the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, there is a "silent auction" on EduIsland. It goes from today through Sunday, May 13.
One does not need to be in SL to bid. The bid forms (which have links to pictures of items) are linked from: http://www.oero.soe.vt.edu/sl/index.html
More detailed instructions are found at the SL site and on the bid forms. Going to the SL allows bidders to learn more about the tools on which they might be bidding. The SLURL is: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Eduisland/121/127/23
The following items are available:
1) Many tools useful for educators, donated by Eloise Pasteur, Dagmar Kojishi, Dedric Mauriac, and Ann Enigma
2) A Retail Holodeck Room (with 40 scenes) donated by Bishop Carroll
3) Artwork by Alchimia Jewell and Professor Believeau
4) Misc. furniture
