The Tinies of Raglan Shire want to expand to the greater world via other media, with an eye to being able "...to fund ideas [they] have for humanitarian projects that help people in health and art related areas."
They have a page on Kickstarter; as I type, they're about halfway to their goal with thirty-one days to go. It sounds like a good cause... and I have to think that if they succeed, people curious about their origins may be inspired to come to Second Life, which would make it win-win all around.
More details at New World Notes, the Tinies' Kickstarter page, the Raglan Shire blog, and at the utterly cutely-named Jazz Paws site.
UPDATE: Twenty days to go, and they are almost 80% of the way there. That's great, but it's not a time for complacency. Please help if you can.
