It has always been one of the ironies of the new generation of My
Little Pony that many adults have come into the picture. What is more,
there are some who are using the show to inspire them to do good helping
others. Bronies for Good is a charitable organization which takes the
message of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to heart in trying to
help others. Since 2011, they have worked to help others in as
altruistic a manner as possible.
In 2012, they raised more than $100,000 for causes including the
Children’s Cancer Association as well as helping to fund several
humanitarian missions in Africa. They especially helped Your Siblings
and the German branch of Engineers Without Borders. Their money helped
to fund a new orphanage in Kampala, Uganda to replace the orphanage that
was there for Safe Project. Your Sibling is now fundraising for a
follow-up project to expand the orphanage and save costs.
Engineers Without Borders wants to go into Manya, Uganda in order to
establish reliable fresh water and better sanitation. That project is
now fully funded, but EWB wants to go in and put in rainwater harvesting
tanks as well.
Here are some informative links about the projects and organizations,
and let us all hope that Bronies For Good continue to do good.
