Rock Your Rack 2022 kicked off today! The 10th Annual event featuring Fashion, Art, Music and Dance is now open through Oct. 16th. There’s a full calendar of DJ’s, Fashion Show, Musical Acts and Tribute concerts. I stopped by and saw the Def Leppard Tribute Concert by the Heiss Project. It was an amazing concert! For the occasion, I wore Fire Within’s limited edition skirt and jacket. Limited edition means you can only get these items at Rock Your Rack! Don’t like my color scheme? Well, figure out your own with the HUD! Fire Within’s creator Ame Morningstar gives you six color choices. Click herefor your ride to Rock Your Rack’s landing point.
Have you ever had an experience that changed you forever? One of mine was losing Loki. This is one of the reasons why I support Rock Your Rack (RYR). RYK advocates for early prevention to avoid breast cancer, but I can’t help but think about losing Loki because of pancreatic cancer.

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 12% of women, and an every increasing percentage of men, will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

About Models Giving Back
Models Giving Back is an agency of professional, certified SecondLife models who give their time and talents to raise funds for legitimate and verified SL and RL charities.
Models Giving Back was founded in October of 2012 by Jamee Sandalwood after a previous agency dedicated to charity work was forced to close due to the owner leaving SecondLife. Jamee felt the work that was being done needed to be continued and set out to lead the models that were already a part of the former agency into new and bigger endeavors at the newly created Models Giving Back.
To date, the agency has partnered with dozens of designers and provided models for runway, print, and other functions that support charities around SL.
Rock Your Rack is the creation of Jamee Sandalwood and is owned exclusively by Models Giving Back in SecondLife.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.
