• Nightly Roundup #374

    How about some color to spice up tonight's roundup? Besides, Rainbow needed to stretch her wings.

    Have some news everyone!

    Charities and the Brony Herd

    As a person who at one time ran a charity for a couple years, I can certainly tell you there are tons of different types of charities and tons of paperwork necessary to run them legally. It can be a hassle to wrap your head around! Thankfully, this little guide to charities has popped up from the Brony Thank You Fund detailing what you need to know about different charities and some of the paperwork involved with each!

    So, if you're a fan looking to start their own charity or have already started one of your own this article might be worth checking out!

    Ecce Bronies Historical Live-Action Film

    Our historic live-action motion picture, Ecce Bronies, is more than just a film about friendship and sacrifice. We want it to be a gateway to help the local community, especially children since this is
    a family movie. Not only is 50% of the proceeds from the film going to be donated to the Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen; we are setting up a riding program for the children at hospital to ride the ponies that will be used in the film. The ponies are from the Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm. We could really use your help to raise money to fund these rides and give these children a chance to experience something they might never have. The hospitals are a scary place for young children, let's make it a better experience for them together.

    100% Funds will go to:
    - Buy 8" stuff animal horses for all the children at the hospital
    - Pay for horse rides for children physically able to ride
    - Any extra funds left over will be donated to the VT Children's Hospital
    at Fletcher Allen


    For the full press release, including synopsis for the movie, check here.

    Rio Grande Bronies - Interviews, Panels, and Conventions, Oh My!

    The Rio Grande Bronies sure have been busy lately! Check out what they have been up to in the copy paste below:

    This is RG of the Rio Grande Bronies (those guys what with the zeppelins and millions of dollars), coming to you guys with some news that we consider pretty nifty.

    Recently we were able to take part in a large convention down here called OmniCon. We were given a panel, and we totally recorded it

    Sadly, we don't have the complete footage right now, but when we do we'd like to submit it to you all for thoughts and whatnot.

    The second part of our nifty news is this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNokM9GrhM4&list=UUAQEX_6fLdvtMD44VfrxNNg&index=1&feature=plcp Particularly the end of the video. The interviewer, by pure chance, interviewed both myself and the co-founder of the Rio Grande Bronies. He questioned us as to why we liked the show, and soon he shall be putting that interview on YouTube as well. The interviewer is a founder of a mid-sized game reviewing site, so that means some pretty neat exposure not just for us, but for bronies in general. I'll send a link once we get it.

    Finally, the San Antonio Bronies and our group have entered a pact to prepare... A SOUTH TEXAS BRONY CONVENTION, where the Brony Fan Fair will be North Texas, and we the South. :D

    Everything Brony - Episode 7

    Finally I'm back! A really bad storm left me without power for a few days but it's back now, oh and I got a new mic. I review the pieces of fan art known as Bucking Fubbles and Special HAbility and the super funny fan fic A Night ( To Try) o Remember. We are now not only just looking for fan fics and fan art to review but fan made music as well so you can leave review suggestions for those as well.

    Successful Meetups

    Camp Royaneh

    The cool story behind this picture:
    "This meetup photo was actually purely coincidental. With summer boy scout camp at Royaneh in full swing, we started an idea to have all the all the bronies at camp wear green duct tape around their hands. We all shared contact info and discussed the show, and all got to have a blast!"

    Wakefield Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    I would like to extend a Brony Meet Up invitation to all the Bronys in the Yorkshire area. The Leeds meet up clashes with something I MUST attend, so I thought, why not organise my own meet up to Bronys in and around the Yorkshire area, and any of those who also wish to attend from further a field. The date for the meet up will be on Saturday the 11th of August at the Wakefield Westgate Train Station.
