OPERATION SHARING KINDNESS

What is Operation Sharing Kindness?
OSK is a Ponychan/Pony Community donation drive that is collecting funds for good, reputable charities. This winter, we ponies have a wonderful opportunity to share lots of kindness with those less fortunate than ourselves! Let's show off our Elements of Generosity by making somepony's Winter a special one!

Our goal is $5,000 USD! We're already half way there... but we need your help! Maybe
we can even beat the goal!

Moony's (Charity Coordinator) e-mail
[email protected]

Nova's (Artist drawing pictures for anypony who makes a donation of over 30 dollars) e-mail
[email protected]

The deadline for pledges/donations is January 31, 2012

How do I donate through OSK?
Donating is quite easy! First, you have to pledge. Pledging involves no transferring of money. You simply write in the thread that you would like to donate, stating the amount and preferred charity, and then e-mail me those same details with your Ponychan user name (if you have one). This is just so I can keep better track of things and contact you if I need to!

Then, once you have pledged, when the time comes, I will send you a PayPal link! From there, you can transfer the funds which I will then give to a charity under our consolidated name.

In this way, we can bring positive attention to the community and, most importantly, share love and joy with others. ♥


What else can I do to help?
Please spread the word! Right now, the Brony Show is helping us do fund raising, and Nova, a Ponychan artist, is drawing pictures for anypony who makes a donation of over thirty dollars!

Even if you can't donate, there are so many ways you can help us do fundraising! Ask Equestria Daily to make a new post about OSK! Ask your artist friends or pony community members to plug and advertise for OSK! Get out there and show how kind and generous you can be.

Maybe you could help to make banners, too? Or host donation contests where donors are entered into a lottery to win something?

Moony's Promise
Here is my flutterwonderful promise to you! Your money, if donated, will go directly to reliable, low administrative cost charities. Absolutely no money will be going to me. Right now I'm giving about $1,200 dollars out of pocket... so I promise you my intentions are only to share kindness with those who need it! Because we've turned down a merger with Bronies For Good as of now, I will be paying any related tax we might have to pay out of pocket as well. Your donations will reach the charities in their entirety... you have my word!



The PayPal is open now, but it won't be donation ready until Christmas! Right now, I would hope that you might all continue to offer pledges. I think this is such a wonderful

>turned down a merger with Bronies For Good

but why

And sign me up.

I don't know how much i can donate right now though, it all depends on how much i get for christmas monies (my relatives have learned that i'm hard to shop for and generally don't mind cash gifts, and prefer them because I'm a practical pony who usually uses them for bills lol).

I'll post again when I know.

I do not want Operation Sharing Kindness swallowed up by them. I feel OSK has a lot to offer that Bronies for Good was not providing, and the terms of agreement were not only binding, but... unfriendly, maybe, sounds about right.


I think we can do a wonderful job together through Operation Sharing Kindness! Just because we do not have a merger, doesn't mean we still can't work together!

I see. I can't be too mad at them, they took my winter wrap up idea and ran with it, actually made a site for it and everything, so it at least got the word out there.

And I'm always happy to help. Kindness makes the world a much better and happier place.

I'm sorry that you feel that way, but I'm sure this is all a big misunderstanding ! We are only looking for a collaboration, not a merger, so you can get as much autonomy as you want. You do not have to follow any terms of agreement and I was honestly friendly the whole time, but English isn't my native language, so I know that I may come off as a little rough at times and misunderstandings may happen. Since it look like that happened, I sincerely apologize for that, no hard feelings ? To clear the misunderstanding, I really want to lay it down : what exactly do you want to offer that you couldn't provide by collaborating with us ?

Here is what we can offer you :
- We will get an extra 500$ to 3000$ grant depending on how much we raise.
- The donations will take place on GlobalGiving (a well-known, trusted charity website) and go directly to charity, without being handled by any of us.
- They will be completely tax-deductible for the donor, and it won't be taxed either so 100% of it goes to charity.
- GlobalGiving provides undeniable proof of the exact amount of money we raised as a community, and this is an official collaboration with the Children's Cancer Association that will be publicized on their website. By working together, we are assured to get media coverage on this.
- Every single donor will receive an exclusive music album, product of the collaboration between more than 35 brony musicians, and the most generous ones will receive One Of A Kind gifts such as scarves, paintings, clay and wooden ponies.
- You're asking people to tell you what charity they want to donate to, but then you have no way to "give to a charity under our consolidated name", as everything will be spread over small donations to the different charities. We have the means to do that and still make it count toward the grand total !


Most importantly, you're planning to receive donations with PayPal, which doesn't allow it unless you're registered as a charitable organization. We know that all too well, because it has happened to one of us before. I really hate to have to be so insistent, but I'd hate even more to see Paypal freeze your account (and keep all the money, as they always do) because of a misunderstanding.


Please tell us exactly your concerns, what keeps you from making this collaboration happens, and I'm sure this is something we can actually work out together ! And again, I'm sorry if my English makes me sound a little rough, but we all really care about making every charity effort succeed !

>doesn't allow it unless you're registered as a charitable organization.

Looks like there is some truth to what Bronies for Good is saying.

The policy of Paypal says that you will need to get " pre-approval to collect donations as a charity or non-profit organization." See link below.

https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=ua/AcceptableUse_full

I assume that Moony has Paypal's permission to collection donations. But just to be sure, I have to ask. Moony, do you have Paypal's permission to collect donations?

I do not like being backed into a corner... I feel that Operation Sharing Kindness has the capacity to expand, in the future, beyond what Bronies For Good is capable of.

While I feel it is very, very wonderful to work together, I feel hesitant putting OSK's efforts behind Bronies For Good, thus entirely stifling any independent development of the project in the future.

This Christmas Season, I am working the project alone... but after it, I do plan on assembling a team, a website, and more! I have given a lot of money out of my own pocket to see this charity organization succeed... and it is not one that is tied to the idea of "bronies" necessarily. While it is inspired by My Little Pony, and the amazing fandom we have, it also has the potential to be greater.

I am currently communicating with PayPal regarding charitable organization status, which is why there has been such a hold-up on the PayPal account (for those who have been following everything). Still, I hope to get everything settled at least before New Years.

I think I should mention we do have our exclusive offers, too! An incredibly generous pony, Nova, is offering artwork for donations over thirty dollars! And, as we build support, I hope we might be able to attract even more help.

I do not mind collaborating! But I will not see OSK swallowed up and become a part of Bronies For Good. You have so many wonderful pony charities contributing to the CCA. OSK will simply be putting it's efforts elsewhere.

Hello Moony, I'm one of the admins with Bronies for Good, a separate one than from before. First, I'd like to again apologize from all of us for this misunderstanding. It seems we've been making our points rather badly, so if I may, I'll just try to lay out everything as clearly as I can.

Second, I'd like to stress that we at BfG are not seeking to try and envelop your operation, however, we would love working alongside you this holiday season if you'd be willing. We have some contacts, we can spread the word of your operation and have other resources you might find useful, which although aren't very much, we give out freely to any of our other charity partners, brony or non.

Finally, I personally have had lots of experience with Christmas time charity events, I know how hard the work is, how costly it is and I appreciate you doing it for the good of the kids this holiday season. So, thank you for your time, I hope we can work together in the future after this small snag, and we hope to see Operation Sharing Kindness grow in the years to come.

Okay, I think I can do this. Unfortunately I have to convince my dad to use the paypal and stuff, but that should be easy. I just have to get a bit more money, and I can then donate about $35. I hope this works. And good job on setting this up!

To raise awareness and build support for Operation Sharing Kindness, I will be running a game giveaway for the next five days!

Any pony who donates over ten dollars can choose to be entered into a daily raffle! Ten winners will be chosen at the end of the day to receive their choice of either a -25% off Valve coupon or a random Steam game!

Right now, I have Left4Dead 2, The Orange Box, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, Medieval II: Total War, 2 copies of Just Cause 2, 2 copies of the Max Payne Bundle, three 25% off Valve Coupons, 2 copies of Dungeons of Dredmore with DLC, and one copy of Dungeons of Dredmore default (generously gifted towards the charity by JokingJames)

I hope you will consider donating!!

Originally, I was under the impression that this was something Moony was trying to get finished before Christmas. But now that I think about it, I'm OK with the extended deadline. He has stuff to organize (and a life of his own), and most charities need funds through the whole year.

But when I first saw (a few days ago) that this was going through January, I went ahead and made online donations to Toys for Tots and a local animal shelter. I'm still on board with my original pledge, though. The way I see it is that once I transferred the money to PayPal, it was spent.

Moony,um i know you are working to get Paypal to let you receive donations,and from what i have heard,that is no easy feat. so i've done a bit of research for you and came across https://www.wepay.com/. from what i have gathered it is simply one of the best ways to collect donations,i hope you look into it!

I can do $30 with my charity being Ear Candy, but the artist doesn't have to bother with the drawing for me and I don't want to be part of the game giveaway thing.

You, my fine fellow, are indeed a generous one. However, you have been usurped. $275 shall be the new pledge. There might be enough for everypony at the old folk's home to get new hips.

Well, It's not a lot... but I'd love to give something. Unfortunately, I can probably only spare about $40 at the moment, but I hope it helps.

Merry Christmas, everypony!

All my love to this, I wish I could help out somehow. I'll try to think of something.
Moony, you really are the best. Like, the best ever. (been wanting to say that for the past like 5 months of lurking, haha). And to everypony donating, hugs! You're all so great!

I haven't been keeping up O:SK, so I don't know how I fit into this. So far I have donated $20 to an animal shelter and another $20 to providing social services to others through a well-known and effective charity. It doesn't need to be considered a pledge or however it works, as long as you know that it's because you inspired me.

That's all that matters, thank you all.
I don't want anything in return.

Just to let everypony know, I'm now back from a short vacation, and I'm starting the first auction pony, who will be Fluttershy!

After that I'm thinking I'll do a season 2 Luna, but if anypony has suggestions on plushies they'd bid on I'd love to hear them!

Hi everypony! Operation Sharing Kindness is currently on hold, as a recent hard drive crash has set me back to square one!

I hope everypony might be patient while I put things back together! The deadline will likely be extended by a month to compensate...

Talk about a downer. I still have my donation set aside for when OSK is back on its hooves. I am also have most weekends off if there is any work that you would like to delegate out so you're not having to bear the full burden yourself.

Hiya Charity Ponies! I'm wondering if anypony has a strong preference on wether the plush ponies are auctioned or put up for sale in my personal store?

Either way, available soon will be a Filly Fluttershy, and whoever buys her will be able to choose an animal related charity for the proceeds to go to. And Filly Octavia, whose proceeds will go to a music related charity.

For anypony interested in giving it a look my etsy shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/Crowbell

Just a quick update for Operation Sharing Kindness:

We need your help to request an update at EQ Daily! They must be getting a lot of e-mails lately, because they've been overlooking our requests for an update for almost two months now.

I will post the update shortly for everypony!

OPERATION SHARING KINDNESS: 1/26/2012 UPDATE

Hi everypony! In case you haven't heard, Operation Sharing Kindness is a My Little Pony community donation drive which collects funds from generous ponies like you and makes donations to charities under the pony name! Due to an unfortunate crashed solid state drive, the project came to a screeching halt over Christmas, but the lost work has been reassembled and everything is full steam ahead!

First off DONATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR COLLECTION! LINK:
https://www.wepay.com/x1a5nbz/donations/operation-sharing-kindness

^ You can use that link to contribute to our cause! To those who have pledged in the past, I am very sorry, most of our pledge list was lost in the crash, but I hope I can still count on you to donate!

Our goal is five thousand dollars... I hope we can reach that amount! We can do it, everypony!

The opening of the donation page is not the only thing to celebrate, though! We're going to be beginning our STEAM Game Raffle as well!


THE GREAT GAME RAFFLE

If you donate ten dollars to Operation Sharing Kindness and add "Sign me up for the Raffle!" to your donation description, you will be entered into our STEAM game raffle! Every ten dollars equals once chance to win, so if you donate more, you will have a greater chance of taking the grand prize!

The Grand Prize Winner (1 winner) will receive:
Left 4 Dead 2, Just Cause 2, The Orange Box (Half Life 2, Half Life 2: Episode One, Half Life 2: Episode 2, Portal, Team Fortress 2), The Grand Theft Auto Complete Package (GTA, GTA 2, GTA 3, GTA 4, GTA: Episodes from Liberty City, GTA: San Adreas, GTA: Vice City) The Max Payne Bundle (Max Payne, Max Payne 2), Dungeons of Dredmor Complete Pack (Dungeons of Dredmor, Dungeons of Dredmor: Realm of the Diggle Gods), Day of Defeat: Source, The Humble Indie Bundle 4, Medieval II: Total War, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, World of Goo, Dungeon Defenders, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Bit Trip Runner, The Binding of Isaac, Psychonauts, Audiosurf, Rock oponies, Terraria, Space Pirates and Zombies, the Cthulhu Saves the World & Breath of Death VII Double Pack, Steel Storm, AaAaAA!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, Super Meat Boy, World Basketball Manager 2010, Aliens Vs. Predator, Alien Breed 2, The Tropico Trilogy (Tropico 3, Tropico Reloaded, Tropico 2: Pirate Cove, Tropico 3: Absolute Power), Dark Void Zero, Bastion, Steel Storm: Burning Retribution, Plants Vs. Zombies GOTY Edition, beta access to Super Monday Night Combat...

...and more! We might not be able to give away every game on STEAM, but at least you won't go bored ^^

If you don't win the grand prize though...

The Second Place Winners (many winners!) may receive:
The Orange Box, Half Life 2: Episode One, Day of Defeat: Source, Space Pirates and Zombies, or lots of other fun games! Who knows what interesting game you will end up winning?


Winners will be chosen fairly with a random number generator. Second place winners will also have their prizes assigned to them in a similar fashion!

You need to have STEAM and be willing to accept these gifts over STEAM if you enter this raffle!


THE PLUSHIE AUCTION

Operation Sharing Kindness has a pony plushie auction coming up, and we'd love for you to pay attention to it when the time comes! Please keep in mind that our top donator will be receiving a custom made plushie of their choice, courtesy of Dawni over on Ponychan's /merch/!


CLOSING STATEMENT

Remember that we're still looking for banners or even story writers! There may be a potential contest in the future for you story writing, artistic, and musical ponies :). We could really use a nice new banner, if anypony is interested in helping with that!

Here's the donation link again!
https://www.wepay.com/x1a5nbz/donations/operation-sharing-kindness

And here is our thread over on Ponychan's /collab/!
http://www.ponychan.net/chan/collab/res/30261.html

Thank you all so much for your help with Operation Sharing Kindness, everypony! Let's go show the world what ponies are all about ^^

Sometimes we all just need to be shown a little kindness...

Sharing Kindness is an Easy Feat ~

Good to see an update over at EQD. I thought by now we'b be a lot closer than just halfway to the goal. Guess it's time to dig a little deeper and finish this out.
