Charity Auction at Galacon

What’s Canni doing at that lectern? She’s auctioning wonderful artwork, plushies, customs, collector’s items, and much more—all for charity!

However, this photo is from the future, from August 12th this year. For her charity auction to become a grand success, we—Galacon and Bronies for Good—depend on your artistic skill and generosity!

If you have it in your heart to donate anything that you think might get some bids (and thus bits), please contact auction@grand-galloping-gala.eu. Thank you!

The money raised (apart from a minor security margin of 1%) will benefit our Seeds of Kindness fundraiser and thus an orphanage in Kampala, Uganda. The orphanage is already taking good care of many children whose parents have died of HIV/AIDS, offering them a new home and a new family. Currently, they have to pay a high rent, though, so they have everything planned out to build their own house, where they would not only save the rent but could even expand to accommodate at least fifty children. To ensure that this new safe haven, the Safe Project, will be self-sufficient in the long term, they want to start a small chicken farming business, the returns of which will be invested into food for the children, their general well-being, and of course their education, to ultimately open the doors for them to a new, brighter future.

If you, dear reader, should happen to be one of the esteemed creators of our beloved show, then this shout-out is also and especially going out to you! Thank you again!

A Few Reminders

  • The end of this month, midnight (UTC) of June 30th, marks the deadline after which we will determine the top donors for Seeds of Kindness, and thus the lucky winners of these prizes.
  • My Little Remix is already working on the next charity album, Faithful and Strong. If you are a musician and would like to contribute a track to the new album, please see this thread.
  • For Faithful and Strong, we are also looking for material and digital gifts for our donors, so digital art and wallpaper packs are just as welcome as customs, paintings, scarfs, and plushies. You can reach us at broniesforgood@gmail.com.

Lisa’s Thank You Letter, Green Village and Tanzanian Orphanage Project Funded!

The Seeds of Kindness fundraiser has reached two major milestones almost at once: The Green Village in Burundi, and the orphanage in Tanzania are now fully funded!

Not only can Mawanda Johnbosco and his team realize their dream of a medical facility in Katerera, Western Uganda, but thanks to everyone’s generous donations, the Green Life association and the Human Revelation Organization can also realize their projects in Burundi and Tanzania. Thus giving many orphans and street children an opportunity to a future without hunger and crime, an opportunity to a proper education, and a new family. Thank you!

Like all Your Siblings projects, these too are completely self-sustainable after this initial impetus and independent of outside help.

Lisa Wiese, founder and first chair of Your Siblings, has put her gratitude in words. The video is her thank you letter to bronies, pony fans, and all who have helped make this become a reality. Spread it around, so every last one of us can hear it.

All further donations will benefit an orphanage in Uganda, which also cares for children of the so-called lost generation. Whose parents have died of AIDS, and who would otherwise be left without money for food, school, medical care, and without anyone to call family.

Please continue your generous support!

Every donor can download both My Little Remix albums. The current one, Seeds of Kindness, and the previous one, Smile! (The link is right on the thank you page you’ll see after you donated.) Moreover many prizes are still up for grabs!
