Ever Courtois Founder / Coordinator Ever Courtois is the Co-Owner and Creator of Ever An' Angel (women's clothing) Tone (cosmetics) and EFM (Ever For Men). An Artist in real life, and a self taught Graphic Artist, Ever's "in-world" work translates to highly relatable clothing/cosmetics for Second Life Avatars. At one recent meet-up in real life, Angel and Ever got into one of those long conversations about and what they find meaningful and fulfilling in their lives. Ever found that having met with some success in her design work in SL, what she has found most gratifying are the charity events she and Angel participate in here in SL. Ever's awareness of Doctors Without Borders came over a decade ago when some friends and activists brought it to her attention. Doctors Without Borders appeals to her because of its equanimity and global scale of operations.  She believes that sound medical care is a right not a luxury, and sees Doctors Without Borders as a fearless and unstoppable organization determined to make this a tangible fact rather than a vague idea predicated on the approval of any political, religious or moral system. Second Life, a community without borders, seems a perfect platform for both getting that message out and supporting their endeavors.
Angelique Wickentower Founder / Coordinator Angelique (or Angel as she prefers to be called) Wickentower is the Co-Owner of Ever An' Angel (women's clothing) Tone (cosmetics) and EFM (Ever For Men).  Second Life has been her sanctuary from the stressors of RL for almost eight years.  This wacky and gorgeous place has allowed her to meet many wonderful people that she wouldn't trade for anything!  She's happy to be Ever's business partner and partner in crime in both lives. Her favorite things to do are: go gaching, shop her own store, support her friends in their endeavors and shop their stores, gacha machines, breedable bunnies and oh yeah, gacha machines! Angel is extremely impressed with Doctors Without Borders on many levels. First and foremost is their tireless efforts to bring medical care to people and places in the world where medical care is not readily available, as well as to people experiencing major region and life changing events.  Second, they run extremely lean administratively and she understands how impressive and important this is for a non-profit since in RL she is COO of a multi-million dollar NP that works with the developmentally disabled.  Your donations will be used appropriately and timely by this wonderful organization seeking to bring basic and advanced medical care throughout the world.
Jynx Rae Blogger Manager Not the oldest of her sl accounts, the typist came to SL just over 10 years ago, with a curiosity of this virtual world brought on by a segment on CNN.  She liked what she saw, explored and made a home for herself here.   Over the years she has spent time as an avid role-player, event and hunt organizer, blogger, amateur photographer, took courses in building that afforded the opportunity to explore her passion for home and garden. Previously she owned Piddler's Perch, now a marketplace only store and currently is creator and owner of *Pastiche* Home & Garden.  Her love of second life still grows as the virtual world continues to evolve and thrive. In RL she has seen many of those she knows and loves suffer from illnesses that gradually worsened due to lack of finances to pursue adequate medical care.  She firmly believes that every individual deserves medical treatment regardless of monetary situation, regardless of where in the world they live.  Being a part of Spoonful of Sugar is dear to her heart as the benefits allow others to have medical care through Doctors Without Borders / MSF where otherwise these person may not have a chance at survival.
Dorrie Bellman Landscaper Dorrie Bellman is a Second Life landscaper/terraformer, a breedables breeder and auctioneer and a helper, all of which are her passions in this virtual world.  Landscaping gives rise to a creative side as well as a quiet realm that soothes the soul, breedables for play because they are cute and an interesting challenge while auctioneering is for fun and interaction with others. Last but not least, being a helper allows me to help and encourage others in any way that I can. MSF (Doctors Without Borders) is without question an essential entity in the world we live in today with much needed health care for the most unfortunate and susceptible. They face terrible living conditions, high stresses, diseases, cultural differences, terrorism and so much more. These courageous people put themselves at risk every day, they do what I cannot. Working with others within the Spoonful of Sugar event to help raise funds to further their goals is my humble contribution.

Ever & Angel are proud to found The Spoonful of Sugar Festival, and are determined that we will be an ongoing, successful source of support for MSF/Doctors Without Borders.

Quixotic Criss Event Administrator Quixotic Criss began her Second Life over 8 years ago and has been going strong ever since. Her zest for life has found her testing the virtual waters in every form she could find. Her joy in people led her to become a CSR for Ever An' Angel and, eventually, the manager there.  After a long and winding road, Quix's passion for creating burst to the forefront in the form of jewelry-making. She has added to her plate as the creative force behind, and owner of, "Semi-Precious" here in SL.     With her natural empathy, Quix has a soft spot in her heart for people that do good in the world. She is a firm believer in the idea of "paying it forward" and the Spoonful of Sugar Festival and its work for MSF has given her an opportunity to do just that. She is grateful for the chance to be a small part of something so vitally important.

Essy Luv Fashion Liaison Event Coordinator ESSY Luv is and has been a highly visible Model in SL for 5 years. She is best known as the "Face of Ever An' Angel", but also works for several other designers and agencies in live, print and runway modeling.  Designers praise her for her awareness of current trends, flexibility and versatility .... adding that she brings a sense of elegance, grace and style to everything she endeavors to do.  We feel her endless energy and attention to detail make her a huge asset to the SOS Team as Fashion Liaison. ESSY has chosen to be a part of the SOS Festival to benefit MSF/ Doctors Without Borders because she knows MSF to be a well known international medical humanitarian organization that will help in many countries around the world with projects/offers of different solutions to match ANY health problem or crisis.  ESSY admires and respects that MSF rushes into action as soon as their help is needed while maintaining impartiality to race, religion or political views of those in need.

Hatris Panacek Builder Hattie (Hatris) Panacek was born back in the day when good old prims ruled the land. At first I was curious about this virtual world where anything was possible, where you could be a dragon or a Neko and you could live in a mushroom or in a castle with a dungeon. After I learned to walk I dared putting two prims together... Like a kid that connects two legos together for the first time I was hooked. My education in history of art and architecture especially of the Medieval period made the choice quite easy. I will build castles. I founded my first small brand Rampart and I started making castles focusing on realism and custom made textures.. And then Mesh upload happened... It scared me to death to use an external software to make what I learned to do in SL with prims. I tried and I failed, miserably. Out of frustration and without a guide I left SL for almost a year. But I came back after learning 3D modeling without pressure, living for months in the Beta Grid, this time with a specialization in Steampunk and Victorian/Neo Victorian style focusing in architecture, furniture and decor and I created a new brand called Ex Machina. When I was invited to collaborate with the SOS festival I was immediately convinced that this is an event I want to help and work with. I think Doctors Without Borders brings hope to the world too often torn by divisions, being without borders is my idea of an ideal world.

Bopete Yossarian Website Manager Bopete Yossarian joined Second Life in February 2004 as part of an all-female game development team, to participate in the first Second Life Game Developer's Competition.  Since joining, Bopete has developed and continues to support a wide variety of products and services in Second Life.  In real life, Bopete is an independent programmer and web developer for small businesses.  She led an 80-member, local computer users group for 4 years, had her works published in two national computer magazines, and at one time helped to develop custom software for a quadriplegic support program for a local hospital. While far from being wealthy or powerful, Bopete is a firm believer in "Noblesse oblige" - the concept of those who are in a position to help others, should do so.  It’s this spirit of selflessness that Bopete admires about MSF.  When she learned that the Spoonful of Sugar project was looking for a web developer, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to "walk the walk", and happily joined the SOS team. Bopete finds great inspiration from one of her favorite Pink Floyd songs, “On The Turning Away”, which expresses the message that we should all take part in helping those that cannot help themselves.
