On the weekend of September 8-9th, I was shown what could happen when 900 people gathered in one location in the interest of having fun, making friends, and celebrating ponies. That spectacle that everyone at Brony Fan Fair took part in has led me to believe that we, Brony Fan Fair and our fans, can help others through a charitable event such as Extra Life. With that in mind, I created the Brony Fan Fair & Friends team to participate in this year’s Extra Life event.
So what’s in it for you, other then the satisfaction of helping a children’s hospital do what they do best? Well! I’m offering some BFF swag for team members who raise funds and participate on our team!
Furthermore, I’ll be hosting a livestream on justin.tv on my video gaming activities; team members who will be gaming with me on the PC will also have the opportunity to join me on these livestreams!
So how does this work? The following is further information from the Extra Life event:
Each of our team members has chosen our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.
On Oct. 20th, 2012, we’ll attempt to play an epic 24 hour video game marathon and it’s our sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to that team member’s chosen hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
Last year, Extra Life raised more than 1.2 million dollars to save kids, but in 2012 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher.
We can’t do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click a participant’s name and then click the “Support This Participant” button on this page.
Join our team and play video games, but don’t forget that you’re responsible for raising your funds to contribute to the team! I’m even throwing in our own rewards for the money you raise!
The first FIVE team members to raise $25 will receive an exclusive Brony Fan Fair 5×7″ print of our mascot, Rising Star, in her Grand Galloping Gala attire.
The first team member to raise $100 (ONE HUNDRED) will receive a special 11×17″ Brony Fan Fair poster of unique never-seen-before artwork of Rising Star, autographed by the artist and yours truly.
Note: I personally am excluded from the prizes.

*A poll will be given each hour and I will play completely based on our Livestream audience’s choice. How long I play each game depends on how much I’m enjoying the game and how much fun the livestream audience is having. This format may change on the day of the livestream.
Let’s show the world what us Texan Bronies can do to help these kids. Even the smallest contribution of $1 will help.
