Seeds of Kindness 2 picks up where the first Seeds of Kindness fundraiser left off: The orphanage in Uganda. The Ugandan organization Another Hope wants to move into a larger building, thereby also saving the rent they currently have to pay. That way, they will be able to care for more than 50 children in the long term, independent of outside donations. The organization Your Siblings is fundraising for the construction of this building, and it is this effort that Seeds of Kindness 2 supports.
You can learn more about 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. 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!
How It Works
As with our previous fundraisers, donors will receive an exclusive music album especially composed for the event. Moreover, the most generous donors will receive unique hand-crafted gifts donated by artisans from the community. (Update: This part of the fundraiser concluded December 25, 2012 (UTC).)
How you can I help or be a part of this?
Visual art, crafts, comics, other prizes
The top donor contest ended December 25th (UTC)! You can disregard this section.
We again offer extra prizes to the most generous donors! We can’t say exactly how much before the event ends, but we’ve already received some huge donations, and their sum is several times higher than the sum of what each individual prize would have sold for on eBay. If you either make or own custom pony art (or even non-pony stuff such as Steam gifts) and want to use your talent to make the world a better place, we would love to collaborate with you, so shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
If you are more versed in the digital arts and can’t make any physical gift, you can also contribute with a gift to charity and the whole community: We are also looking for various kinds of media that can be released to celebrate major milestones! If you are up for the challenge, email us with your ideas and we will contact you with further information and advice.
Note on art submissions: Until further notice, we will be accepting art submissions up until the official start of the fundraiser. Once more concrete details are worked out, we will update everyone accordingly.
Thanks again everyone! Without your support, these events would not be possible. Brohooves and let’s do some good out there!
Love and solidarity to you all.
