Get MAKENSHI to Bronycon 2019
Makenshi, for years, has been one of the most avid supporters of the brony music scene and you could figure that out by scrolling down to the comments of almost any brony song with more than 30 views! He is also the video editor and current head of Cider Party, the fandom’s biggest music promotion channel, and Rock Farm. Additionally, he is one of the lead members and writers for the only active blog totally dedicated to pony music, Horse Music Herald.
Long story short, he contributes a remarkable amount to the brony fandom and never asks for anything in return (in fact, he was overwhelmingly humbled by this campaign’s very existence). However, while he’s not in dire straits or an abusive household, he is currently without work, lives in France, and has never been to a pony convention before.
So let’s make a brony’s dreams come true!
Our goal is to finally give Makenshi the pony convention experience he’s dreamed of for years, and what better opportunity to do so than the final BronyCon in 2019? It’d be all the donors’ “thank you” for all the promotion, feedback, collaboration, and work Makenshi has put into exposing others to hundreds of musician over the years.
Breaking it down, the $1600 in the goal will specifically go to:
$75 for a basic BronyCon 4-day badge (plus fees)
$200 for a roomshare at a hotel at the Inner Harbor
$150 for a round-trip ticket from Makenshi’s local train station to/from CDG airport in Paris
About $1,075 for a round-trip from Paris to Baltimore
$100 for food Friends of Makenshi’s have already agreed to have him picked up/dropped off at BWI
Any money, if any, raised in excess of the goal will go towards Makenshi buying merch at BronyCon (vendor hall, etc.) or exploring/sightseeing in Baltimore.
We will post a big update after approximately 90 days, and periodic updates throughout the campaign. Thank you so much to anypony donating!
While I am organizing this GoFundMe, there are several other unnamed members of Team Horse, all who share in our love of ponies, artists, and doing our best to make every convention we go to special. Their contributions to this fundraiser will be to help me use the money in the most efficient way possible so that every dollar is used to its fullest.
If you wish to donate via paypal please check the updates. Paypal is NOT supported by gofundme.
"Hey everypony, I had a wonderful dream about going to a pony con last night and as we were planning to do another update I thought why not share it!
So it was a real dream as I was sleeping, and it was the longest dream of a pony con that I ever had!! The dream was so wonderful, I was hanging out with many brony friends and attending lots of things/panels, and it felt pretty much as good as I thought, for one of the things it involved singing but it was sooo improvized/not prepared at all, but we still had sooo much fun, it's crazy. There was also one song that played at a gig/rave and that I recognized from hearing it from afar... and in the dream I was so happy and into it that I was literally flying around and making huge leaps in the con grounds among all the people, unrealistic but that's dreams for you, anyway it was all so wonderful and the dream lasted for longer than usual, it was amazing <3 I'm definitely very hyped about it all <3
Nothing changed to my situation IRL on my end despite my efforts unfortunately, I just keep being out of luck it seems, as yesterday another hope I had for a new job ended up being crushed and I'm now back to square one... once more. This world is so tough... But at least I know that you all got my back, and it's cheering me up quite a bit! Thank you all, and hopefully see you at BronyCon next year! Love you all <3 <3 <3"
