Seeds of Kindness is now up and running! Check out the full announcement below!
Countless musicians, artists and many others have worked relentlessly for months to finally launch Seeds of Kindness, a charity event to fund a clinic in Uganda and a village for street children in Burundi. Today we celebrate the launch of the project with an EverFree Radio livestream at 16:00 GMT (noon ET). It will premiere the Massive Smile Project, a cover of the Smile song by 11 soloists and over 160 choir singers, as well as the eponymous Seeds of Kindness music album packed with 41 songs, amounting to over 2 hours and a half of music! Dozens of musicians will be in there, as well as Telofy, second chair and founding member of Your Siblings, to answer any question you may have.
Everyone who donates to the fundraiser can download the album as a thank you. Moreover, donating over $50 will get you a free Steam games or Full Access Subscription to iPad MLP ebooks from Ruckus Media, as long as we have some in stock. Artists of all trades have also contributed very valuable prizes for those who donate the most, up to a plush commission worth over $1,000.

The first roughly $10,000 will be used to complete the clinic, then, subsequent donations will be used to fund the construction of a Green Village in Burundi, where street children who have lost their parents to the civil war can find a secure home that allows refugees to become self-sufficient without resorting to criminal activity.
You can learn more about our Your Siblings, in their FAQ – it’s a good read. Sustainability, transparency, local roots, need, and urgency are their primary criteria, ensuring that they only support the projects with the strongest long-term impact. After this initial financial impetus, the projects will be completely self-sustainable and break free of outside aid. Moreover, their policy is to cover all travel and personal costs as well as money transfer fees independently from donations, so that 100% of what you give will be spent exclusively on the projects!
We would like to share a little something more, as a final note:
Back in early January, when we were working on Seeds of Kindness, Lisa (founder of Your Siblings) surprised us with this act of gratitude. Even when we were only just starting to set this up, they trusted our good will and already wanted to thank all of us, all of you for what is about to be accomplished. Here, “Bronies for good” doesn’t refer to the small group of people, but to us, the whole community of creative minds and generous souls who made all of this possible. Let’s make this happen!
