Seeds of Kindness

New Seeds Of Kindness Gifts

Hey Everyone!

First off, we would like to thank everyone who has thus far donated to the Seeds of Kindness Fundraiser!  Our modus operandi has always been “give to everyone who gives”, and we are pleased to announce a few addition to our special thanks. The Smile charity album was updated with a new take on “A Sorceress Girl” and a brand new song from Sprocket Doggingsworth, “The Rise and Fall of Emperor Discord“, and will be offered to anyone who donates to Seeds of Kindness.

If you have already donated, you can simply go back to the Seeds of Kindness download page that you were asked to bookmark or find it in your web history – or donate again if you feel like it. Your Siblings still needs €13,000 more to build the village that will provide homes, and education, and employment to street children in Burundi!

Moreover, you can find below the updated list of prizes that the most generous donors can claim. The top donor gets to choose whichever gift he likes the most, then the one after him and so on. When making bigger donations, just follow these instructions, so that we can get back to after the event ends on June 30th.

Additionally, anyone donating over €37 ($50) can instantly get a Steam game or iPad MLP ebooks subscription as an extra present, independently from the prize contest. Just follow the instructions here, and be sure to contact us directly! We removed the games already claimed, so as of today, May 27th, here are the games still available:

 

  • 10 All Access Subscriptions to Ruckus Reader from Ruckus Media, (worth $30 each), offering FULL access to MLP iReaders: Things That Go Bump in the Night, Twilight Sparkle’s Special Lesson and Rarity Loves Fashion)

So-Cal Brony Book Drive for Harbor UCLA Child Life

Hey Everyone!

If there are any bronies in the So-Cal area out there looking for a way to hone in on their element of generosity and get their video game on, than the So-Cal Bronies group has just the meet-up for you! On May 19th at 11:45 A.M, the So-Cal meet-up group is going to be having an arcade-themed event at the Redondo Beach Fun-Factory in Redondo Beach, C.A. But instead of just settling for an afternoon of video games and good company, this group is planning to collect coloring books, art supplies, and other such bits to donate to Harbor UCLA Medical Center Pediatrics-Child Life Services! So not only do you get the chance to hang out with a bunch of awesome bronies, but you also get to help spread some cheer to kids who could certainly use it! So if your from So-Cal, and want a good way to spend a Saturday and get a little bit of good karma as well, then this is the kind of event for you.

Check out the event page here and as always, thanks for being awesome!

Love and Solidarity!

Seeds of Kindness First Milestone

Great News Everyone!

As of the time of this post, Seeds of Kindness has reached $16,407 U.S.D!

This means that the Clinic in Uganda has now been fully funded, and that the first milestone for Seeds of Kindness has been reached! As promised, the Massive Smile Project staff is now working hard to finish production of an animation celebrating everyone’s hard work and commitment to the success of Seeds of Kindness! From this point on the fundraiser, donations will be going to be going to funding the Sustainable Village project in Burundi, which will require around $30,000 to be completed!

Regardless of us reaching this goal, we want to thank all the artists, donors, and comrades involved for their ongoing contribution and support to Seeds of Kindness. You guys were instrumental in making this happen, so thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!

Now, let’s see about funding that village!

Love and Solidarity!

Seeds of Kindness Launch Event and Stream!

Hey Everyone,

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.

More info on :




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:

Bronies for Good in concrete

Bronies for Good in concrete

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!

Traveling Pony Museum Raffle and 24 Hour Livestream!

Hey Everyone,

 

Keep an eye for an awesome 24-hour charity Livestream Event from the Traveling Pony Museum, Ponies Live, and a few others to benefit Inked! Art for Africa. Full Details Below:

 

The Traveling Pony Museum has partnered with Ponies Live (http://ponyslivenow.com/) to organise a 24-hour charity livestream!

 

The target of all this goodwill will be the wonderful ‘Inked! Art for Africa’ charity effort (https://my.worldvision.ca/iom/Forms/ViewFundraiser.aspx?fundraiserId=120) organised by Maddy Peters, the incomparable voice of Scootaloo. (Actually, if anyone reading this has a contact with Miss Peters herself, she’d make a wonderful guest! Please feel free to send this her way.)

 

The fun will begin this Saturday evening at 6 PM EST (3 PM Pacific, midnight CET), and it will continue through Sunday evening at 6 PM EST (3 PM Pacific, midnight CET). On Sunday at noon, the stream will be cross-promoting Bronies for Good’s wonderful ‘Seeds of Kindness’ effort.

 

I know this is a little bit last-minute, but it’s all I have to work with. 🙂

 

This is a cooperative effort, including some of the biggest names in the brony community. In addition to the TPM and Ponies Live, we’ve got interviewers from Everfree Radio (http://everfreeradio.com/) and The Brony Show (http://www.thebronyshow.net/). They will be providing interview services to all the various guests who will be calling into the livestream during this 24-hour period. But GUESTS are what we need– and we were hoping you would be one!

 

So  if you are a noteworthy Musician, Artist, or Community Member, and you’d be interested in calling in for an interview slot, or if you know someone who would, please do respond ASAP. There’s not much time between now and the start of the livestream, so unfortunately we have to work fast. So check your weekend schedule and see if there’s a spare hour in that 24-hour period! 🙂

 

Love and Solidarity Everyone!

 

P.S, the Seeds of Kindness Launch event will proceed shortly after this live-stream, so keep any eye out for an announcement soon too!

Seeds of Kindness Prizes and iPad Apps from Ruckus Media

Hey Everyone!

 

The finalized Seeds of Kindness Prize Page is now up and running for all of you ultra-generous bronies out there who plan on competing for prizes! (Top donors will have priority choice when it comes to making their selections, so keep that in mind if you plan on gunning for a specific prize!)

 

In addition to our artist forwarded prizes, our friends over at Ruckus Media have been generous enough to offer all-access subscriptions for their Ruckus Reader to the first 10 iPad owners who donate $50 or more to Seeds of Kindness. These are worth $30 each and will give you full access to MLP iReaders, such as the following.

 

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Twilight Sparkle’s Special Lesson

Rarity Loves Fashion

 

 

The first one of these is currently free on iTunes, so check it out! And if you own an iPad, and are already planning to donate to Seeds of Kindness anyway, you now have no reason not to throw in those few extra bits. At least as long as the supply lasts.

 

Welp, that’s it for now everyone! Keep an eye out for the official Seeds of Kindness Fundraiser launch debut and epic livestream on the 29th of April, and remember, keep up the good work!

 

Love and Solidarity,

Bronies for Good

October Update

Congrats on everyone who went out to donate during Nurse Redhearts Round-up in September. We managed to bag about 15 pints of blood under the name of Bronies for Good, and even if that seems like a small feat to some, the fact that we came together as brothers and sisters with no previous connections except a ideal of a better world demonstrates the altruistic power that we as an inclusive community have.

This is only the beginning though, as now the hard work of maintaining Bronies for Good as a practical manifestation of service and generosity continues. Fortunately, we have all of you to help us and that means a bright future for BfG, bronies, and the world in general as we continue to grow and perform activities.

Our deepest thanks to all of you, and keep up the good work everypony.

Much love.

-Martin

 

Future Plans

Hello comrades, so during the meeting earlier, we discussed and toyed around with the idea of reaching out to the creators or commercial parties of the MLP:FIM franchise about possibly working together in trying to mobilize the wider energies of the MLP fanbase  into attending and organizing community and charity service events.

 

This is what we have so far:

Possible creators/owners to contact: Daniel Ingram, Sabrina Alberghetti, Lauren Faust, Hasbro, etc. (Informing them of our organization, goals, and if they would be willing to assist us in someway with it)

Possible intermediary contacts: Sethisto, Phoe, etc. (we would ask them about means of contact, considerations, advice)

 

What do you guys think about attempting this? What way we would we go about doing this? Who would we contact?

Feel free to share your thoughts, feelings, or criticisms by responding to this post.

Once we reach a consensus, we can go ahead and follow through contacting them

 

Alright Bronies, that’s all for now! Love, friendship, and make sure to donate this month!
