The lights are on
Do you like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? You aren't alone, as many others do too. Are you a brony who uses GIO? Then this is the place for you.
If your name is Oni No Tenshi please ignore this. =P
Hey Everyone! For those who have been here for a while (and
those who may have not), we’ve just been informed over the last couple days
that our friend and GIO member Oni No Tenshi has just given birth to her second
child Lyra (more details here). Although culturally having a second child is less significant than
the first, I felt it’d be nice to have members from the GIO crew here send her
and her new baby a gift to commemorate the event anyway. Although she’s fairly busy now,
Oni has been a great contributor to both the blog community and the GIO Brony Group, so
I think it’s a great way to show our appreciation as well.
Anyway, since her daughter is named Lyra. I felt it’d be
appropriate to gift one of these Lyra Beanie Plushies to start, and then
depending on how much we raise, we could either upgrade to a larger version, and/or
throw in some gift cards to places like Target or Baby’s R Us to help her pick
out some new clothes. I was also thinking maybe someone could collaborate to
make a custom digital card with our names (or screen names if you prefer) so I
could just print it off and mail it with the rest of the stuff.
If you’re interested feel free to donate via Paypal to: firstname.lastname@example.org then send me a message
via either GIO or the above email detailing your contribution so I can confirm
the amount. I was hoping to get the gift out by sometime late next week or maybe around Monday Nov. 12th. If you'd like to delay your donation, you can send me a message with your pledge I'll collect the payment later.
If you have any other suggestions, feel free to leave them below as well.
Love the idea, and will turn my focus more towards this as we approach the end of the week.
Sure, this sounds awesome! I can't really make any donations, but I would love to design that custom digital card you're talking about! If that's okay with everyone, of course lol.
U KNOW MEEEEE
If you want to design a prototype card or design some characters for a collage, be my guest.
So who's names should I put on the card?
I'm glad you asked. I figured we'd just sign a piece of paper, take a picture post it here, then photoshop it in... Otherwise, put me down.
Just as an update, the beanie came in so all we need is to get the card finalized and I can ship it out.
Okay, sorry I've been pretty busy lately. I actually have time to work on it tonight though so I'll get it done and send it to y'all.
It's alright. It is that time of the school/work year where everything seems to clash at once.
Well okay then! That should do it lol. I uh...don't suppose you could print it or something and sign everypony's name? It's just that I don't know everyone here lol. Hope it's fine.
IDR, remind me to pay you whatever I owe either through paypal when i finally get it set up, of at FE! next year.
Looks great! I'll toss in a few edits to make printing easier. I'll sign it from the GIO group and ship it out ASAP.
@SK: It was supposed to be a donation pool, so you owe basically whatever you want to owe. I believe Undertaker Adrian and I have the covered the cost for the beanie, so if you pledge an amount for a gift card or cover shipping costs, just let me know.
ill put forth $20-$25, whatever that might cover.
...so what happened? XD she get it?
Yup, she got it! ^__^
You'll have to scroll a ways but it's there, picture and everything
