Time: Every second Sunday, at 2 p.m. local time, starting June 7, 2015

We now have a bit of a loose agenda that we determine by voting on Trello. We also organize the projects that we work on via Trello. I can give you access at the meetup.

You can also find us on Meetup and Facebook, and we have a newsletter for event reminders.

Please stop by if you would like to chat about EA or if you have any questions.

If you have any questions about effective altruism that you would like to see discussed or even answered, or if you seek to network within the community to optimize our human resource usage, or if you just want to hang with some swell folks, then you’re invited to join us! Feel free to bring some veggie snacks if you like.

Brony Fair 2015

The Brony Fair convention, April 11–12, 2015, in Berlin, Germany, sponsored a vendor’s booth for us, Bronies for Good. Sara Nowak and I ran the booth and also distributed effective altruism leaflets around the venue. I will estimate their conversion rates in about a week.

At the booth, we accepted donations for the Against Malaria Foundation and gave out buttons, pins, artwork, and copies of the Bound Together comic anthology as thank yous. The performance was as follows:

  • 25 copies of Bound Together given out
  • 2 Bound Together preorders served
  • 11 metal pins given out
  • about 3 postcards given out
  • 12 newsletter subscribers gained

We did not keep track of the number of buttons given out.

The donation performance was as follows:

Table Saturday €755 Table Sunday €312 Remainder €0.57 Total €1,067.57

We did not count the coins smaller than €1 on the first day (hence the “remainder”), and on the second day only counted the overall total, so that we calculated the subtotal for the day from the overall total.

All donations have been forwarded to the Against Malaria Foundation. They amount to 377 nets.

The 157 Bronies for Good flyers we handed out have so far yielded a conversion rate of 0% in online donations and 0.6% (1) in website visits. Some recipients may have donated at the booth, though, as a result of the flyer.

Many thanks to all donors and the Brony Fair team!

Bound Together Comic Art Anthology Bound for Presses

Bound Together

Good news to those who love art, comics, and helpfulness—Bound Together is off to the presses and will be in your hands in a few short weeks.

Bound Together is our original charity comic and art anthology, enjoyable for readers of all ages. Top quality artists in the fandom collaborated on this high-quality, full-color, and professionally printed book featuring 52 pages of pony comic stories and individual art pieces: KefkaFloyd (project director), Adlynh, Bakertoons, Centchi, Emberwisp, fxcellent, Jowybean, Leekfish, Muffinshire, Pasteur, Ponywise, Sofas And Quills, Spectralunicorn, Starry Night, and Steve Holt! While PixelKitties had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts, she sends her earnest support for the project and we brought on additional artists like Emberwisp, Centchi, and fxcellent to help make the book even better.

Some artists have already posted samples of their contributions, which you can see here. That’s just a taste, as you can only see all of the comics and artwork by donating for the book.

True to its theme of teamwork and togetherness, all buyers are also collaborators on our joint effort to combat malaria. The revenue generated by Bound Together goes towards the Against Malaria Foundation’s outstanding prevention program. Each copy of Bound Together helps provide multiple insecticide-coated nets to thwart the spread of malaria.

In fact, the donations from preorders have already exceeded the printing costs, and the project is currently generating positive revenue for the charity. We have 30 remaining preorder slots, and all preorders will ship in April. We’d like to give a sincere thanks to everyone who preordered the book, as without your generous contributions this project would never have been printed. Couldn’t preorder? Don’t worry—the book will be available at various conventions across the globe. The book will debut at BABSCon, with other conventions such as BronyCon, TrotCon, GalaCon, Brony Fair, Czequestria, and more to come.

Already donated to the project? Please consider making an additional donation directly to our Seeds of Kindness fundraiser!
