Bronies for Good: Smile! A Christmas Charity Fundraiser
Few things are as devastating as a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Young patients and their families are quickly thrust into an unfamiliar and often frightening world of medical decisions and hospital protocols. At the same time, they are typically coping with emotional upheaval and financial anxiety. Their needs go well beyond what even the best medical care can provide. However, in the words of a parent, sometimes even during the craziest storms you are lucky enough to get a rainbow . Let’s do as much as we can to give them that chance, and make them want to keep smiling forever !
The Children’s Cancer Association needs our donations to provide supportive mentors to children undergoing emotionally isolating and physically difficult cancer treatment. In collaboration with GlobalGiving, we will release a link on Christmas Day to donate to a collective brony fundraiser for this mission. The payment takes place on their website, so it is completely trustworthy, tax-deductible and sent directly to the Children’s Cancer Association. Depending on how many people donate in the first week, CCA will also be granted an extra 500$ to 3000$ bonus offered by Global Giving !
Sharing is an easy feat, so this will also act as a mix between charity sale and blind auction. Not only will the most generous donors receive extra prizes such as paintings, scarves, custom ponies or plushies, but every single one will be immediately granted a digital copy of a completely exclusive music album, product of the collaboration between the most talented bronies. More than 25 artists have already signed in for this, and it will only keep on getting bigger !
