We are happy to introduce to you the Angel Manor Christmas Hunt today, an event initiated by MISS SL ♛ 2018, Sienna Bellios and with full cooperation of the Angel Manor Estate Management and the MISS SL Organization. The Angel Manor Christmas Hunt’s processes benefit the organization and maintenance of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Tennessee, Memphis, USA and it’s entities, to support children and their families, in the fight against cancer.
MISS SL ♛ 2018, Sienna Bellios voiced during her candidacy as MISS SL ♛ Greece 2018 already, how deeply she admires the work of the team of scientists, physicians and caregiver of the team at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and her wish to support the efforts, in the hope to raise awareness for the children, who are in need of our support.
MISS SL ♛ 2018, Sienna Bellios writes in her note:
“The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.”
The above is the mission statement of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and in 1962 when St. Jude’s opened, the survival rate for childhood cancer was a mere twenty percent. Today due to groundbreaking research that figure has escalated to as much as eighty percent!
Danny Thomas built St. Jude after praying for guidance to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes. After becoming a success, Danny Thomas set about building a shrine to St. Jude, which eventually became St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
St. Jude’s is one of the premier research institutes today, and they provide cutting-edge treatment for children who are facing death every day of their lives. They also freely share the information that they learn so that doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to learn and to save even more children.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is different though, in that it subsists largely on donations from people such as you and me. Their operating costs, as you can imagine, are astronomical and “as much as seventy-five percent of the one billion dollars it will take for 2018 will come from donors”. This enables St. Jude’s to focus on the children, and to be able to provide the research necessary to save lives, and to provide care. As is stated at https://www.stjude.org, “No family ever receives a bill from St. Jude because all a family should worry about is helping their child live”.
Those that have survived cancer faced down the most hideous of diseases and with St. Jude’s help, they along with their families, won their battle. The war, however, rages on until children’s cancer no longer exists.
The founder, Danny Thomas, stated that “no child should die in the dawn of life”. I believe in their mission, and I hope that you can support it along with me.

MISS SL ♛ 2018
Shortly after taking up on her reign as MISS SL ♛ 2018, Sienna focused on merging energies to an event, which may raise awareness for the urgent needed funds and to provide a share of support through our vibrant community. The Angel Manor Estate Management have agreed wholeheartedly to help the cause and with the cooperation of all recent winners, MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2017, MR SL ♛ 2018 and MISS & MR SL ♛ YoungStar 2018 and the MISS SL Organization management, we have scheduled an event of the scale, we see necessary and fit, to support the mission of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The Angel Manor Christmas Hunt opens on December 1, 2018 at 03:00 p.m. SLT, spreading across most of the public areas at the 12 regions spanning Angel Manor Estate, including the famous Rose Theatre, the state rooms at the Angel Family’s residence and the beautiful gardens. In a three weeks lasting event we want to enable Second Life residents to hunt for exclusively designed and collectible Christmas baubles, which contain exclusive fashion, accessory, furnitures, decoration items and anything in between for the perfect addition in the upcoming Christmas season, donated by the great creative talents of our community. All proceeds received from the hunt items will get donated straight forward to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, with daily accessible transaction logs and recipes provided, through our management.
The Angel Manor Christmas Hunt will be filled with events organized by both teams, the Angel Manor Management and the MISS SL Organization, providing entertainment like live concerts, theater and ballet performances, fashion shows, charity balls with auctions, a snowman building contest, sleigh riding and so much more. We also got a note slipped, that Santa himself will arrive in Second Life just in time, to see the small and big children of our community, who are visiting the Angel Manor to help the children of St. Jude’s.
