My friend Veri Oddfellow passes along the news about a Second Life fundraiser party for a neat cause called Great Strides. Great Strides is a Maryland-based therapeutic center that employs horses to help people with mental disorders. On Sunday, December 16, from 11am-2pm PST, DJ Nexeus Fatale will be the featured entertainment during the Great Strides charity dance party at AMO Island in Second Life (click here to teleport).
Nexeus always spins a great set, and it sounds like a really cool center. So drop on by and drop a few lindens in the donation box. The full announcement after the jump…

What we do…
Great Strides is an innovative program that helps people to overcome their mental health issues by partnering treatment staff with equine staff.
Great Strides offers equine facilitated psychotherapy, therapeutic horsemanship and equine facilitated learning. Through specially designed interactive experiences that promote emotional healing, we build confidence, improve social skills, and help clients make positive changes in their lives. Our farm environment provides a unique setting enabling clients to address treatment issues on many different experiential levels that they might not ordinarily access in a therapists office.
