As the brony herd grows, so does the money floating around inside it. That means more money for vendors, more money for special projects, and more money that is given to charities. Unfortunatelty, it also is blood in the water, and will inevitably attract sharks.
One place where that could be especially problematic is for charity causes. Part of the problem is that the average person doesn't understand the various types of charities that exist, and the tax and legal implications that go along with them. That's something I'd like to address briefly here today.
