Supporting Calas Galadhon

1 Calas Galadhon in Spring

Spring has returned to Calas Galadhon Park so I had to pop over to pay it a visit. Ty Tenk and Truck Meredith never disappoint and the park is as lovely in spring as it was charming in winter.

One thing you may notice on your visit is that the donation kiosks have been changed to reflect a monthly target amount. As of May, Ty & Truck will have to reduce the amount they personally put toward the $1,485 US dollars cost for them to maintain the full 11 sims. Yes, you read that right. That is the total in US dollars they contribute monthly to make the park available to SL residents.

This means, in effect, that if donations don’t meet a certain level, part of the park may have to be closed.

If you visit Calas Galadhon and have a few Lindens to spare, please drop them into one of the kiosks on your favourite sim. Or split it between several sims if you are in love with more than one. They pool the money for the payment, but the donation kiosk you choose will help them decide which sims to keep and which to let go, if it comes to that. Because this park is so special I would hate to see any of it disappear, but as always, real life commitments often get in the way of our Second Life dreams so this decision is completely understandable. You can read more about this on the Calas Galadhon Park blog.

I chose this location to photograph because I have always loved this painting, The Singing Butler by Jack Vettriano. Is it my favourite location at Calas Galadhon Park? Well, it is one of many. I made small donations on two of the sims, but I will be going back to add to that total. There are so many delightful spots in the park that I want to help preserve. Please, if you have a preference, head over to help out Ty and Truck. Even if you don’t have a favourite but do have a few extra Lindens tucked away for a rainy day, this is a wonderful way to help support these two people who have given so much beauty to the residents of our virtual world.
