If you are interested in donating items to our Seeds of Kindness 3 charity auction, you may do so at the Bronies for Good booth in the Vendor Hall!
Sister conventions BronyCon and GalaCon are combining their forces this year to support Bronies for Good in their Seeds of Kindness 3 charity.
Bronies for Good is an international organization that is committed to fostering the growth of a global community of caring, socially conscious individuals through the organization of service events worldwide and encouraging individual, group and social involvement.
Mascots Mane Event, Blank Canvas and Hoof Beatz of BronyCon and Canni Soda of GalaCon are urging you to attend one of these grand events this summer and take part in the charity auction, where the proceeds of the auctions from both events will go to supporting Seeds of Kindness 3—not to mention relax and have a great time with what both conventions have to offer!
Seeds of Kindness 3 is a charity movement that supports various projects on the Your Siblings website. More information on Your Siblings and their projects can be found on their website.
BronyCon and GalaCon will be the same weekend this summer. BronyCon is Aug. 2-4 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md., while GalaCon will be Aug. 3-4 at Forum am Schlosspark in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

Our final panel spotlight this week is the panel that you’ve been waiting for since BroNYCon in January 2012:
Whether you’re a mythology expert, or you don’t know your Icarus from a hole in the ground, you won’t want to miss this chance to see the show we love in a new and fascinating light.
Foal Papers (@FoalPapers), a classics graduate student who’s currently writing his thesis on Greek mythology, will share with you everything that he’s learned on the subject, its specific appearances in Friendship is Magic, and the vital role it’s played in making this unlikely show about candy-colored magical ponies a truly groundbreaking storytelling phenomenon.
Our second panel this week features a combination of two fantastic shows that we know many of you will love!
We already know you like My Little Pony, but do you like Doctor Who? Do you even know about the show? Whether you are a devout Whovian or you haven’t seen a single episode, you are welcome to this panel to learn about a fan series hybrid of the two shows (MLP and Doctor Who! called “Whooves N Assistant”!
Meet the creators of the brony approved series, Pierce Smoulder (aka BaldDumboRat) the fan acclaimed voice of Derpy Hooves, and Keikoandgilly, fan acclaimed voice of Doctor Whooves, as they talk about the show’s origins, the aim of the show, the community, show content and special sneak peaks from the series. Additionally, they will also be answering Q and A and performing some voice requests along the way.
So what are you waiting for? Come on in and have a seat in our panel!
Welcome back for another weekly panel spolight! For our first panel this week, join Devnul, Jitterbug Jive, Shroobs and Lil’ Miss Jay in a journey through the world of Grimdark, a genre of fiction that puts our colorful equine friends in tragic scenarios. Whether you’re a hardcore horror aficionado or have never seen a spooky movie in your life, we welcome you to our panel where we hope to demystify the genre and show you why a lot of ponies love grimdark!
