Are you seeing double? No, that’s just the double coverage of the double charity that’s going on at BABSCon! We’d insert a Princess Luna or Team Rocket reference here, but you guys probably already thought of them.
So, what’s on the agenda for Bronies for Good today? Why, doing good in the world, of course! They do have “good” in their name, after all. They’re in need of some additional help at BABSCon, managing their events at the convention and ensuring that the involved organizations get all the help they can. In addition to helping at the convention, there’s also an orphanage in need of some helping hands in taking care of the children it houses. If you think you can help in any way, head below the break where they go into more detail about what’s necessary to be a volunteer.
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.
Oh, did we mention you can also get some pretty great stuff by donating? Yeah, those donating to the cause aren’t the only charitable ones. <3

DustyKatt, the world’s manliest brony, is at his thing again doing amazing things with his charity drives on his show, Stay Brony My friends. This week, guest Sarah Fader, with her three year old son, Ari, have come on and she chose the Coalition for the Homeless, which is based in New York City. This winter has really been cold, record-setting cold for a while and at times with enough snow to have ended up blocking parts of NYC for days. Days, where the capital of the world, used to harsh weather already, has been unable to deal with this year’s. Getting involved in helping this charity, as outlined below, will go a long way in sheltering the homeless from the cold, which will hopefully be receding soon. And as always, there are nice prizes for helping out. So do what bronies do best, people, spread our love of our show in real concrete ways and help our world! Continue reading

If you feel that you can help, then you have until 28th February to send in your music. Check out their press release after the break for more information!

What’s the Traveling Pony Museum’s idea of a great fundraiser? Surely not a brony carwash! They actually have a really solid list of events and merchandise for their 24-hour fundraiser, though the carwash is, sadly, not included. Everything else you could hope for in a livestream is here, though, from interviewing show staff to raffles to auctions, plus some guarantees for sponsors, all of which can be found below the break. This is the most promising thing to happen since season 7 was announced! Oh, it hasn’t yet?
