Due to circumstances beyond my control, I would not be making it to BronyCon 2015.
That being said, there is some hope for us, especially if you were among those who donated on our GoFundMe page - that is, I am going to attempt to go to BronyCon next year instead. Here are a few notes with regard to everything that has happened.
1.) I am unable to go this year because of complications with my application for my US non-immigrant visa. Travel regulations to the US from the Philippines is met with great scrutiny, as we are notorious for illegal migrant workers to the US among other countries. Apparently being single, newly-graduated, and with no prior travel experience deems me as 'a potential illegal immigrant'.
2.) We were able to refund most of the expenditures so far. The airline ticket was recovered and we have a sizable amount of the $2100 currently donated for the trip and other expenditures. This would be kept in a secure account for use for my second attempt at BronyCon in 2016. This would be handled by PegasusDiver (the guy who facilitated the GoFundMe page).
3.) Between now and August 2016, I will attempt to get as much paperwork done to make me eligible for travel - full set of government and financial documents, (hopefully) getting major property in my name like a house or car, and travel to nearby countries to make my record more credible. I'll try to apply for a visa again in about eight months' time.
4.) On that note, I still have a $70 three-day pass BronyCon ticket with me. If anyone is interested in purchasing it from me, do leave a note - I still need to sell that thing as not to waste it.
Thank you, everyone, for supporting me so far. I may not make it now, but soon I will come around to meet y'all.
