Models Giving Back (MGB), established in 2012, is the Premier Charity serving modeling agency here in SecondLife.

MGB is a team of Professional SL Models that feel it is important to give back to their SL and RL community by using their talents to raise funds for reputable and verified charitable causes. We partner with designers and other fundraising events around the grid to provide modeling services and donate our fees to the cause.

Our CEO and founder, Jamee Sandalwood, is committed to raising funds and awareness for charities in RL and last year we as a team raised and donated over $2300 USD to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Toys for Tots, and the International Red Cross. Along with that we helped other causes here in SL accomplish their fundraising goals such as the Tiny Footprints Campaign.

We are responsible for the annual Rock Your Rack charity event bringing together fashion and music in SL for one purpose – to raise funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation in a two week event each fall.

We add models to the MGB team twice a year via Casting that is announced in groups such at 1. The Best of Second Life Magazine Readers and 2. Starwalkers 2010, along with announcements on our Facebook Page.

Only the top models will be selected to be a part of this small, elite team. Many choose to cast, and only a few are selected at each casting based on styling quality, prim placement, pose choice and ability to write descriptions. Casting will involve two separate stylings, and a runway walk for each that is a little challenging. We are looking for the best at each casting.

Minimum Requirements to apply to cast for Models Giving Back:
1. Minimum 1 year in the SL Modeling Community as a model – runway, print or store
2. Graduation from an SL Modeling School/Academy that offers comprehensive training
3. Ability to write clear descriptions of outfits worn (our models write their own backstories for walks)
4. Proven Blog or other means to advertise shows/events
5. Top Notch Styling Ability

8. Modern/Up-to-date look, skin, poses, hair etc. & ability to stay current with SL Modeling Trends
