Day one ends with happy tears
Day one of the Wear Gray Market and Sanura and Arora are bouncing around high on happiness. Even before the sim was opened for business we had received more donations that we thought possible, thanks to the merchants participating in Wear Gray having donation jars and Wear Gray Vendors in their stores.
After just 18 hours of open trading we beat last years totals of $212, 524L. Day one wasn't even over and we had outdone all of last years efforts!!!
8pm rolled around and our first DJ for the Market, Alicia Chenaux rocked the sim for two hours bringing in more donations. Alicia donated all tips for her set using a Wear Gray Donation jar instead of her own. Thank you ever so much for your generosity Alicia and for helping us open with a bang.
With midnight now upon us and a new day about to begin in the market we count up our totals and can't wipe the grin from our faces. It's only just begun, but we are so happy to announce that our donations so far have reached $257, 574L.
We would like to thank everyone who has donated, purchased items or even just visited to show their support. It means the world to us, and to those, whose lives are going to be affected for the better, by our eventual donation to ABTA at the end of the Market.
