Two days ago I donated $2500 USD to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to help children have a Merry Christmas this year.  A most worthy cause, even though they didn’t understand what SL is  or what a Footwear Expo had to do with their charity! xD

The fair this year was another success, and there are SO many people to thank for that.  It could never have happened without their help and cooperation and I hope that you had as much fun as I did.

My sincere thanks go to the following:

Rosie Shark – My co-organizer for this year’s Fair.  I love you Rosie, you are such a rockstar!  Can’t wait to do it again next year.

Phobos Jamberoo – The amazing person who donated the two Sims we used for the fair.  Visit his company site, Virtual World i.

Delora Starbrook – The owner of Haven Designs who built us another fantastic build this year.  Thank you so much!  P.S.  Whatcha doing next year?

Matthew Anthony, Bax Coen and Echo Siego – Scriptmakers we could not have lived without!

Bethany Heart – A lovely person I’m privileged to call my friend.  She stepped in like a pro when she was sorely needed.  Thank you, Bethy!

Anessa Stine, Uma Ceawlin and Alicia Chenaux – The awesome official bloggers of the event.  Visit their blogs and be amazed!

Amika Jewell – A Japanese translator, we could not have done this without you!

Killian Klein – Moral support, and the idea man.  Thank you.❤

Aradia Dielli – The fashion show maven who is always a style icon for me.  Love you, Ara.

The following people were our very generous advertisement sponsors:

Felicity Blumenthal of Second Style Magazine

Sasy Scarborough of What’s New SL
