Le Soldat Pony – Luna Comes to Me in a Dream

By Sofas and Quills

By Sofas and Quills

Here another song from Le Soldat Pony’s album Before These Mighty Skies.

Le Soldat Pony released the album completely dedicated to the altruistic causes of Your Siblings, and as such it is also available as thank you for every donor to Seeds of Kindness 3 alongside A Beautiful Heart.

Here Le Soldat Pony’s official, bilingual description from Bandcamp:

A weird folk/ambient album, which is considerably different from my last, but again owes massive thanks to Nohbdy XIII, And the Rainfall, and Eccentrifuge for the continued support and critique. Il faut remercier SaigneurGuerrier; ‘La maison errante’ s’est passé seulement avec ton aide, et j’ai beaucoup de gratitude. And as always, thanks to Telofy, InC, Bronies for Good, and Your Siblings for being so easy to work with in directing the proceeds their way.

If you buy it through Bandcamp, they take a share, so to maximize what goes to the valuable causes that Your Siblings and thereby Seeds of Kindness 3 support, please go through our donation page.

Here are said causes, as described in the main Seeds of Kindness 3 announcement.

The first of our projects has already been funded thanks to GalaCon! The second project is a guest house that will be built close to the Another Hope orphanage in Uganda so that tourists who visit the region—and they are already in contact with local tourism businesses—will pay for many of the running expenses of the orphanage such as the school fees and medical bills of the children. All the while, they will also save the costs of accommodations for their volunteers. The third and largest project is for Green Life: To extend their agricultural program, which they run for and with the street children in their care, they want to acquire another field and more animals, build a rainwater tank, and supply one of their buildings with solar energy. Another solar energy installation will benefit educational activities for the children—such as welding, music, and pottery. All these new or expanded activities are designed to meet the needs of the children and moreover yield a surplus, again, to cover such expenses as medical bills and school fees.

We still need a little under €28,000!

Charity Album: Welcoming Spring

Welcoming Spring

Chords of Chaos has released a third charity album—this time they are welcoming spring.

Through the window I can watch another intense snowfall right now, but my apartment is already filled with the warm sounds of the next season, courtesy of CaptainFluffatun, Miles Tiden, Macarou, and Kingsley Evergreen.

The proceeds are going to Your Siblings, and thus to the Safe Project orphanage in Uganda, which is building a guest house to ensure the financial security of up to 50 children, who need food, clothing, and education.

You can find a preview behind the break. Please donate generously.

Forest Rain – Raise The Sun

Forest Rain – Raise The Sun

I think we all know who best princess is. And those who dispute Celestia’s magnificence, shall be taught a valuable lesson from the edge of my blade.

This track is part of the Faithful and Strong Charity Album, which you can only download here:
http://broniesforgood.org/seeds-of-kindness-2/

It’s for a really good cause. All proceeds go toward funding the Safe Project in Uganda, an HIV-stricken country where more than 2.3 million children are orphaned due to AIDS. By expanding the orphanage and building a chicken farm to guarantee its long-term sustainability, the Safe Project will provide to this lost generation care and education to them toward a brighter future.

Lyrics:

From the snow-swept mountain tops
To the emerald green fields
Across the sea and sky, that wondrous light
Has touched us all

And as the night begins to fade
And the moon hangs low
We wake to see the rise of her
Celestial glow

Woah~
Raise the sun
Woah~
Raise the sun

Every pony and parasprite
Every dragon and bird
Knows that without her light, her loving warmth–
We’d never live

Those cowards hide in shadows
Sheathed by the night
We fight the darkness, our swords
Raised for the light

Woah~
Raise the sun
Woah~
Raise the sun

Throughout all of Equestria
The Solar Empire endures
Every colt and mare, we stand at arms
Ten million strong

You best stray from evil
And stay in the light
Or be lost to darkness, like tears
Shed in the night.

Woah~
Raise the sun
Woah~
Raise the sun

(Spoken)
We shall never surrender…
We shall never let the darkness impede…
We shall stand strong for all eternity–
And spread her radiance… and love…
MOVE OUT!

Fan Merch: Charms from Tasty Peach Studios

Click for shop page

We have a bit of merch for you, this time apparently for charity.  Tasty Peach Studios is putting out preorders for the acrylic charms you see above, with at least some of the proceeds going to breast cancer research (they don’t exactly specify).  They’ll evidently be around 2 inches in size, rather big for anything other than a necklace or ornament. If you’re interested, check out the shop page here.

[Thanks to keikokukien at MLP Arena for finding this one!]

Hearth’s Warming Care Package

Now don’t get this confused with the “care package” project from last year (where the members of DHX were suppose to get a care package from the community).  This care package is being assembled for Kiki, the little girl who has been battling brain cancer but been blessed with the support of Tara Strong (who in turn got the community involved).  A group from the community is looking to put together a fan fiction care package for her this holiday season, details are below:

Greetings and Salutations to All of Equestria!

This letter is to announce the arrival of a new brony charity project, known as the ‘Hearth’s Warming Care Package’. We have been moved by the many great things the members of our fandom and community have done for those less fortunate, and this project is a way for those without funds to give back to a cause.

For our first event, we are putting together a care package for a fan you might already know about. Kiki Havivy is a wonderful little pegasister that was diagnosed with brain cancer in January of 2011 at the age of six. She is fighting an uphill battle, and so far, the brony community has raised countless sums of money to aid her in her quest for survival, as well as the dozens of artists and musicians who gave their work to auctions and charity albums.

We also seek to do something for Kiki for those that do not readily have money to give to her cause or a skill of monetary value. To this end, we are announcing the first ever brony charity fanfiction contest. We are looking for a great story that we can illustrate, print and send to Kiki along with a package full of holiday cards, toys and wishes for her speedy recovery.

But wait, there’s more!

We have several big names in the fanfiction community lined up to judge your entries. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get some feedback on your work from some of the most respected and renown writers, on top of the chance to write for a cause. Among our judges are such names as DawnFade, Chromosome, Pen Stroke, WandererD, JasonTheHuman, The Descendant, Chaotic Dreams, PhantomFox, TwilightClopple, Thyrai, PonIver, The Sentient Cloud, Whirring Gears, Steel Resolve and even more!

Interested? Read on for the details and rules…

Your Siblings Christmas Campaign Digest

By me, sort of

Over at Your Siblings—a pony-fabulous nonprofit you should totally donate to—we ran a Christmas campaign, asking artists to create works that convey the essence of our name:

Our name, Your Siblings, is to remind everyone to care for those in need, though often far away, like they were siblings. In our Christmas campaign, we want to encourage you to create a picture or video that conveys this message artistically.

We have received seventy-nine submissions from fifty-four artists, way too many to repost them all here. Have a little digest instead, after the break.

Oh, those clear, smooth lines. And there I thought ponies could only be made more cuddly by upping their furriness.

By Hewison

What an extravagant style. Also have a look at the background.

By Futtashy

This is a canvas painting by Futtashy of Bronies for Good. (The photo has weirded the colors a little.) I hadn’t even started the campaign when he agreed to do a painting for us and of us: Those two ponies in the last “frame,” as it were, are Lisa and I. Lisa is the founder and first chair of Your Siblings. Moreover, the proceeds from the painting will go to one of our charitable projects.

By Melipuffles

Have a look at her Pokémon drawings; they could almost live side by side in the same universe.

By AaronMk

AaronMk about this work: “The image is supposed to portray that no matter how dark things may seem there’s someone there to prop you up. I’ve seen this popping up a lot in the brony community and whenever a fellow brony is down on his or her luck and entered hard times the rest of the community will be there to support him or her with kind words and their support. It’s really rather moving. So I took this to a visual setting with my OC Rolling Colt. I think it was about time I started doing stuff like this or I’d drive myself mad.”

By Jamey-the-Hedgehog

I needn’t comment if I have nothing to add, right?

By Jen

By The Other Cody

Yeah! And incidentally, the board of Your Siblings is also completely vegetarian.

By TheLunarArmy

Very touching. Rarity is not the only pony who can make truly meaningful gifts.

By WhiteBreeze0318

A suit! It’s probably Anonymous reaching out to the Equestrian ambassador.

By Mazikar

Mazikar alias Zach has made one of these cute drawings for us each day!

By Durandal

By ODarkDragon

To every artist who has contributed, whether their work is listed here or not: Thank you!

Also, merry Hearth’s Warming, and don’t forget to donate and stuff.

SMILE! A My Little Remix Charity Album

Going on sale December 25th, this project by musicians from My Little Remix and hosted by Bronies For Good is selling a bunch of exclusive songs and remixes on one album and all the proceeds go to the American Cancer Association.

There was a more official preview video with a bunch of song clips but that was taken down by trolls too. So enjoy this sample from
