You made history!

Dear Princess Celestia,

What an amazing group of people Bronies and those who support Bronies are!

Twenty-four days ago we announced our dream of producing a documentary about the phenomenon of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” and its dedicated fans who live its values in their daily lives. Well, not only have thousands of members of the Brony Community and other members of the public come forward to encourage us, enough of them have shown their generosity that we can make an even better film than we ever imagined! They also helped the project become the 2nd most funded film of all time on Kickstarter.

Thank you for your inspiration and the inspiration we have received, and will continue to receive, from people everywhere.

Your faithful students,

Tara, Lauren, John, Mike, Laurent & the rest of the crew.

      I think it's fair to say everyone's mind has been blown away at how much has been risen ^_^ Never have i been more proud of our community's efforts!

      The Element of Generosity is strong with this fandom.

      Ack! I just found the mention of the blogspot on the very first update. Why didn't I check that before leaving that comment? *face hoof* Feel free to erase that part of my last comment and this one too if you like. ^_^:

    7. Jacob Gibson on June 11, 2012

      Well this has been a blast. I discovered the show only a couple months ago and it looks like I jumped on the train just in time. I really mean it when I say that you bronies are the most fun I've had in eons and I’m glad I could contribute to this. Who knows what else we can accomplish and how we'll continue to affect the show and others. Thanks again Mike and the rest of you for your patience and hard work. But I am curious... why wasn’t this included in the recent update? I found it on Equestria Daily today and it made me cheer inside.

    12. Michelle K. T. Illg on June 10, 2012!! *Rainbow Dash fangirl squeeing* I can't believe how much money was raised for this amazing project--over five times more than hoped for! Brohoofs all around; bronies are by far the most incredible and seriously dedicated fandom ever! 8D And what's more, this show has an utterly fantastic cast and crew--I'm grateful to them for caring so much, getting so involved with the fans, and wanting so much to make this project happen!

      Kickstarter really should start supporting PayPal donations... If you include the PayPal money we become the top funded video on Kickstarter ever by about $3000. I'm still amazed at how much money was raised.

      Brohoof to everypony!

    19. Angerelic on June 10, 2012

      Absolutely incredible. I can't wait to see what they will be able to do with this amount of money when their initial goal was 60,000.

    20. Jan Heckmann on June 10, 2012

      I'm so happy. Congrats to the whole team and a big THANKS to all the backers.

      I am utterly dumbfounded on a weekly basis on what I see being accomplished or done regarding this community and it is the most amazing feeling ever. We should all be proud to be a part of it.

    23. Perrydotto on June 10, 2012

      Paypal's still open?
      lol, if they don't close it I bet money's going to keep flowing into this project until it's complete, all the way in September!

      ...btw, I've been working on an in-depth analysis of the nature of the brony community to help make this documentary as insightful as possible. Where can I submit something like that, once it's done, to make sure it gets seen by Mike, Laurent, and the rest?

    32. David on June 10, 2012

      That.... is a lot of money right there.

      I think rarity would be proud of us, we are as generous as Spikey-wikey :)

    39. Evi SnowMew on June 10, 2012

      Building houses in Africa? Helping children to conquer horrible illness? Funding a documentary? I absolutely adore this community and the values it stands for as a group! Will you ever ceaseto amaze me?

      I can't brohoof you all, but if you ever see me do! And consider yourself hoofed virtually until then.

    40. Jared Glentz on June 10, 2012

      ok so now we raise money for full length live action movie yes!!! if transformers can get 3 movies so can we!

    41. Joshua Alexéi García Sheridan on June 10, 2012

      My own quote for this occassion: "You ask for an inch, we'll give you mile."

      Kudos, hats, and shirts to this community! We've given them over three-fourths as much as a network commission budget. Look forward to a wonderful production, everyone! I'm certain it will be worth it!

      I thought the paypal fees had already been taken out?
