At a very difficult time for the world, the Home and Garden Expo raised more than 2,272, 300 Lindens for Relay for Life of Second Life (as of today). That’s approximately 8,900 US dollars.

In the show, Saffia talks to Mike of Loggin’ Off Homes, one of the organisers of the Expo, and she and Elrik look around some of the amazing exhibits at the Expo, including talking to Cassie Eldamar of Little Big Designs.

The Competition raised raised 159,288 Lindens – that’s US$615.93 in total!

There’s also a swift look at the new Linden Homes – the log homes.

Sadly, the one thing you can’t do is visit the Expo itself as it closed today.

But it’s a very impressive show, so do tune in or join us at 2pm SLT at the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams!
