So, how can we fill our quota of giving at BABSCon? Why, charity, of course! They’ve announced two organizations that they will be helping with their charity auction as well as another little event with one of the charities.This way, not only are they helping keep good people alive and reassured, but they’re also helping animals find homes and love. Fluttershy would be proud. Head below the break to see what the two charities stand for and how you can help do your part.
BABSCon, in collaboration with Bronies for Good, would like to announce the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and San Francisco Suicide Prevention as our 2014 charity beneficiaries!
The San Francisco SPCA is a community-supported, non-profit animal welfare
organization dedicated to saving, protecting, and providing immediate care for cats
and dogs who are homeless, ill, or in need of an advocate. The SPCA also works
long-term to educate the community and reduce the number of unwanted kittens and
puppies through spaying and neutering.
San Francisco Suicide Prevention is the oldest community-based telephone crisis center in the United States. Founded in 1962 by a journalist from the British Broadcasting Corporation, the organization adopted a crisis management model developed by the Samaritans Centers in Great Britain and Europe. To this day the agency trains local volunteers who provide suicide prevention and crisis intervention services to callers. Over 500 other crisis centers across the United States now utilize the same concept.
Our charity auction will be split between both organizations evenly. If you would like to contribute an item to our charity auction, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the heading [BABS Charity Auction] and the following information. You can also feel free to stop by the Bronies for Good fan table to drop off items for the charity auction.
We are also collaborating with Peninsula Humane, a Burlingame based partner of the SPCA, to host an on-site mobile adoption center on Friday from 1:00 p.m – 4:00 p.m. If you’ve ever wanted to find a pet to call your own, be it a puppy, hamster, rabbit, or otherwise, then be sure to keep an eye out for them!
Be sure to check out these amazing organizations and to participate in the plethora of charitable programming we have in store for you this coming April!
The Bay Area Brony Spectacular (BABSCon) is the first convention devoted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in the San Francisco Bay Area, and will be held on April 18-20, 2014 at the SFO Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, CA. Contact email@example.com for more information!
