» LasPegAssist Goes Live


As some of you know know, there was an incident at Las Pegasus Unicon this past weekend, a situation developed where the Guest of Honors (Voice Actors, Writers etc) were unable to be paid by the convention for their efforts in attending the event in Las Vegas. The Round Stable, along with many other websites, conventions, and fan charities have come together to help drive LasPegAssist, a site meant to coordinate the effort to make sure those who were denied comped rooms and charities that were shortchanged get their due.

Donations are sent directly to those in need and the back end is put together by the big players in the community like The Brony Thank-You Fund, Everfree Radio, Equestria Daily, Derpy Hooves News, Celestia Radio, ourselves at TRS, Bronies for Good, and more.

Below is a press release and donation drive to help other guests who were over-charged by the hotel when they were unable to pay a discounted convention rate. Many people were effected with unexpected charges to their accounts.
