You may or may not have noticed a new banner in the rotation of the Dell.com home page this week that mentions the upcoming movie Evan Almighty. I’d encourage you to check out the page it links to because it’s much more than just a simple product placement announcement. Dell and Universal Studios share many of the same views on environmental responsibility and are coming together through this movie to make it easy for you to get involved, as well.
Evan Almighty is the first major motion picture comedy to zero out its footprint, and some great video about how they did it is available at www.evanalmighty.com. In addition, at www.getonboardnow.org, they have created the Almighty Forest—a place where you can plant a virtual and real tree with just a $5 donation. The Almighty Forest is a partnership with The Conservation Fund, which is also a partner in Dell’s own Plant a Tree for Me program.
By now, you may be wondering why I’m the one talking about all this, since I usually post here about Second Life. Well the reason is that I wanted to tell you about the Evan Almighty premiere event in Second Life at Dell Island!
This Sunday, June 10, while the movie premiere is happening in Real Life in Los Angeles, we’ll be throwing a Rock the Ark party in Second Life with unique, behind-the-scenes footage of the film, along with the music of Frogg Marlowe and Jaycatt Neko! In the spirit of the movie, where God directs Evan to build an ark, we’re encouraging everyone to attend two-by-two as their favorite animal (non-anthropomorphic residents are certainly welcome, too!)
Join us there from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. SLT! Not a resident yet? Visit our introductory Second Life page to learn more.
