I find it hard to talk about this situation without tearing up, but here goes.
For those who haven’t heard, Michael Morones is an amazing little boy who has experienced significant and persistent harassment and bullying because of his love of My Little Pony. So much so that this week Michael attempted to take his own life. He is currently in a coma and seems to have has suffered brain damage. His family is now faced with mounting medical expenses, lost work time, and the horror and stress of seeing their sweet, amazing child suffer.
For those who would like to reach out to Michael and his family or follow Michael’s progress and recovery, you can do so via both Facebook and Twitter
Donations directly to Michael’s family can be made through paypal using this email address- firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also running an ebay auction with all proceeds going to Michael and his family.
The auction includes-
An 11x17” print featuring Spike the Dragon and Mayor Mare, signed by their voice actor Cathy Weseluck and a first edition printing of the book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell, signed by author G.M. Berrow.
The complete set of out-of-print official 11x17” My Little Pony posters. Styles included are Season 2 Cast, Antagonists, Royal Wedding, and Equestria Map
Fifty-six of my convention prints. Close to every print I’ve ever had at a con can be yours in one fell swoop.
If there’s something from my gallery that you don’t see here, and you win the auction, let me know and I’ll make it happen.
43 buttons including all the ones I’ve retired. ALSO, though not listed on ebay, but I will include the I Believe In MA Larson button, the I Believe in Tacos and Beer button, AND a Chaurus Egg Button.
My new Alicorn Amulet blank notebook with fabric cover, silver page edges and laser-etched symbol on the front cover. The notebook is the first version of the Black Alicorn Amluet books I will be selling at conventions and on Etsy later this year. This copy will be the only one made with the crystal version of the Alicorn Amulet.
Thanks to everyone for checking in. If you can, please take a look at the auction or make a donation to Michael. If you can’t, then please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers. I will try and keep my Deviant Art version this journal updated as information changes and other ways to help become available.
