Love Ulaa - Please Help

"Love Ulaa is a fundraising event which aims to raise at least $200 towards sending Ulaa Coronet to visit her terminally ill mother. She has raised half of her target herself through gofundme. Now it's time for the SL community to step in and lend a loving hand to one of our own."

Butterflies For Ulaa - Please Help
This morning I've received a group notice from Evangeline Miles of Evie's Closet, in which she speaks of her RL friend in the gentlest terms, and she applies for our help. I don't know Ulaa but I know what it means to be in her situation. Many years ago I had to take a plane literally in hours, hoping to be able to see my father still alive in another country. Luckily, I had the money to pay my fare. Ulaa is not this fortunate. The event is open until 18 August, so you have a few days to visit. Please go and spend your Linden Dollars in the best way possible.

Outfit: "Sigrid" by Evie'sCloset, a special version for the "Love Ulaa" event (250 L$).
Bun: part of the "Iona" hairdo in Cast Iron, by Discord Designs, available at the "Love Ulaa" event (180 L$ for a colour pack of 6 shades).
Hair: "Grace" in Black by Due, a special offer for the current round of "Enchantment" (250 L$ for a colour pack of 5 shades).
Jewellery: part of the "Persephone" outfit by Les Encantades - 100 L$ (a true deal, as the rest of the outfit is amazingly beautiful, too!), available at the We Love Role-Play event.
Skin: "Fairy" by Mudskin - June 2014 group gift; it is free to join the group.
Eyes: "Kaleido Eyes" in Night by Ikon - a former group gift, now available for 150 L$.
Pose: "Butterflies" by UncertainSmile - part of a three-piece pose and prop set, available at the "LoveUlaa" event (200 L$).

A Pirate's Life

1 Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho. 2 Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We extort, we pilfer, we filch, and sack,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
Maraud and embezzle, and even high-jack,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho. 3 Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We kindle and char, inflame and ignite,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We burn up the city, we're really a fright,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho. 4 We're rascals, scoundrels, villains, and knaves,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We're devils and black sheep, really bad eggs,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho. 5 Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We're beggars and blighters, ne'er-do-well cads,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we're loved by our mothers and dads,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho. 7 6 More from the fabulous Fantasy Gacha Carnival.
There are so many designers here, most with at two different gacha machines - so very dangerous! I've come the hard way to learn that if there is one item you really really want from a gacha - you are likely to spend far too much trying to get it! That said - all of the items I've ended up with are amazing!
