• Convention Compilation - May 7th - Charity Edition

    I'm actually adding the charity tag to this post, primarily because Everfree Northwest, Bronycon, and Galacon are rolling with announcements pertaining strictly to that in this one.  If you don't go to conventions, or have no interest in them, but still want to contribute to the overall projects, don't miss it!

    Have some headlines:
    • Everfree Northwest Seeks Items for Charity Auction!
    • BronyCon and GalaCon Rally in Support of Bronies for Good’s Seeds of Kindness 3
    • Brony Fan Fair Short Animation
    And full releases after the break!

    Update: Break fixed! - Cal

    Everfree Northwest Seeks Items for Charity Auction!

    Do you paint ponies? Do you draw ponies? Do you sculpt ponies? Do you make Celestia's crown out of metal? Do you do any physical, musical, or written art that you would like to share with the world whilst also making yourself feel good knowing you're helping children?

    If the answer to any of the above questions was yes, then please donate to the second annual Charity Auction at Everfree Northwest! Last year, we brought in $13,535 for the Seattle Children's Hospital, and this year, we're hoping to bring in even more. Every single cent goes to the Hospital, and publicity for your works goes out to everypony who sees the auction, whether in the room or on the internet! Your creations and gifts will be auctioned off alongside those from our special guests for a truly worthy cause.

    If you are interested, please contact our Charity Directors, Going Once and Harmony Strings, at [email protected]. We will need to have the goods in our hands by no later than June 30th, and information on where to send the goods will come in an email once we have accepted your donation.

    Here’s a video of our auction from last year, including the Pinkie Pie espresso machine and the legendary story of the donated Derpy Toy!

    Thank you so much for giving. Your donations embody the spirit of our community like nothing else.

    Brony Fan Fair Short Animation

    We at Brony Fan Fair are pleased to show you this short animation promo by NyanRose2 (http://agirl3003.deviantart.com/) starring our mascot, Rising Star, and her older sister, Heartland. Rising Star is voiced by Rina-chan (youtube.com/user/meleeprincess) and Heartland is voiced by Ayu Sakata (of www.sakevisual.com). This is one of the few ways we have attempted to bring life to our mascot and plan on producing media as such in the future. Enjoy!

    Brony Fan Fair is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic convention in Austin, Texas. Founded in 2012, Brony Fan Fair opened its successful first year to a surprising number of over 900 attendees consisting of families and people of all ages. The convention returns this year to the capital of Texas on September 13-15, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown and boasts the cheapest on-site registration rate in the state of Texas at $40.

    BronyCon and GalaCon Rally in Support of Bronies for Good’s Seeds of Kindness 3

    Sister conventions BronyCon and GalaCon are combining their forces this year to support Bronies for Good in their Seeds of Kindness 3 charity.

    Bronies for Good is an international organization that is committed to fostering the growth of a global community of caring, socially conscious individuals through the organization of service events worldwide and encouraging individual, group and social involvement.

    Mascots Mane Event, Blank Canvas and Hoof Beatz of BronyCon and Canni Soda of GalaCon are urging you to attend one of these grand events this summer and take part in the charity auction, where the proceeds of the auctions from both events will go to supporting Seeds of Kindness 3—not to mention relax and have a great time with what both conventions have to offer!

    Seeds of Kindness 3 is a charity movement that supports various projects on the Your Siblings website. More information on Your Siblings and their projects can be found on their website.

    BronyCon and GalaCon will be the same weekend this summer. BronyCon is Aug. 2-4 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md., while GalaCon will be Aug. 3-4 at Forum am Schlosspark in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

    For more information on Bronies for Good and their Seeds of Kindness 3 charity, visit their website. On behalf of BronyCon, GalaCon and Bronies for Good, we hope to see you at one of these events in August!
