Multiple Sclerosis is a terrible disease that causes its sufferers’ immune systems to attack their own central nervous systems, causing paralysis, chronic pain and blindness.Two million people around the world are affected, and that’s two million too many. The good news is that good progress is being made in understanding its causes, and there are treatments being developed which slow the progress of the disease once diagnosed, but that’s far from victory. There is no cure (yet), and no way to restore the damage (yet). And that’s where we come in, fellow bronies.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is leading the fight, and we’re going to support them, every step of the way. Your donations will go directly to research and to assisting people with this lifelong burden. As always, your donations will be matched one-for-five (up to a hundred in matching funds) by Caerdwyn, so let’s stretch those dollars!

Keep ‘em walking.

Suited for This Guest

On Monday July 14, at our normal 5pm PDT time, Stay Brony My Friends is happy to welcome Charlotte Fullterton. We are crazy-excited!

She knows what ponies wallow in.

Charlotte has written quite a few episodes (most recently, the more-fun-than-anything Power Ponies), but the crowning jewel is what many people consider to be the best episode in the entire series: Suited for Success.  Come, find out whether you pack warmly for going into pony-exile!

Manly Challenge: “Because I Am A Girl”, part 2

This week’s manly challenge, brought to you by Maddie Peters, is to support “Because I Am A Girl“. We’ve done it before, and we’re gonna do it again!

manly challenge - Because I Am A Girl - Maddie Peters

Plan Canada, one of the most effective charities in the world, is taking on one of the most shameful problems in the world: underfunded female education. There are many places where education for girls is not considered important, or even actively discouraged. Girls in those places are also last in line to receive medical care. Ladies and gentlemen, this is wrong wrong wrong, and for this reason the “Because I Am A Girl” project was created. If the creeps running things in those parts of the world won’t fund educating or caring for their girls, it’s up to us to help Plan Canada to do the right thing.

When (not if… WHEN) you donate by going to the donation page and clicking “Sponsor Me”, remember to include your name so we can enter it in the thank-you prize drawing! Maddie has helped us out by creating the donation page herself, so all we have to go by for the drawing is the thank-you list. Make sure your name is on it!

And as always, Caerdwyn will match one-for-five, up to a hundred dollars in matching funds. Stretch them dollars!

SPECIAL CHALLENGE: We’ve visited this charity before, when Michelle Crieber (Applebloom) gave us this challenge. We did great, booking 700 dollars. But can we do better for Scootaloo? EPIC DONATION BATTLES OF EQUESTRIAAAaaaaaa… BEGIN

Scootaloo, you drive us Maddie

This time for sure! It’s time to welcome Maddie Peters, the voice of Scootaloo, to Stay Brony, My Friends!

maddie

Maddie will be joining us on Monday June 30 at 5pm Pacific. We know that’s where you’ll be at that time, right? Time to give the mad(die) props to Scootaloo, ask your questions, and show her the good time that the hardest-working Cutie Mark Crusader deserves! I mean, really, if you weren’t bawling like a baby at the end of Sleepless in Ponyville, there’s something massively malfunctioning. Off to the Reponification Gulag with you!

Scootaloo. The cure for atrophied feels.

Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most dehumanizing of all conditions. Watching someone you love slip into dementia over the years, watching everything special about them erode into a mere memory, watching a strong mind slipping away… this is an evil nobody should have to endure. And it’s time we put a stop to it.

The Alzheimer’s Association is supporting promising preventative and theraputic research, and is supporting families and individuals already affected. Join us, join our challenger Kazumi Evans, and show your Element of Generosity as we fight Alzheimer’s Disease together!

By donating, you are quite literally helping to save minds from destruction. As always, your donations will be matched one dollar per five by Caerdwyn, so magnify your bucks!

It’s the right way. It’s the brony way.

A song so beautiful it must be Rarity

This Monday, at 5pm PDT on Stay Brony My Friends, we welcome the singing-voice for Rarity… the one and only Kazumi Evans. *FAINT*

There is a reason Rarity and Luna have angelic singing voices, and it’s Kazumi. We all knew that, of course, but there’s so much more to know! What’s this about Chinese sword-dancing? And what’s this about working at arch-rival Mattel? Come get the scoop!

Holy alicorn horns, Flutterbat… she even LOOKS like Rarity.

Manly Challenge – Epilepsy Foundation of California

This week’s Manly Challenge, brought to you by Amy Keating-Rogers, is to support the Epilepsy Foundation of California. We are on that like AJ on an apple pie!

Epilepsy is one of the most misunderstood diseases in the world. When people hear of it, they imagine whole-body seizures… and yes, that’s a part of it. But there are also blackouts, uncontrollable changes in mood, and other sudden crises in the sufferer’s brain. The worst thing, however, is that there still persists medieval fears and superstitions; there are still places in the world where epilepsy sufferers are persecuted in the name of religion.

Fortunately, epilepsy is much more controllable than it used to be. There is still a great deal of work to do, however, and some of the most critical work is dispelling the myths surrounding epilepsy. That’s where we can help. The Epilepsy Foundation of California is one of the leaders in public education, as well as supporting research and supporting patients in their daily lives. Your donations (which as always are matched one dollar per five by Caerdwyn) will to towards the goal of eliminating this problem once and for all.

It’s what we do. Damned RIGHT it’s what we do.

She’s baaaaaaack

Who is back? She is back! That’s who’s back, on Monday July 2 at 5pm Pacific on Stay Brony My Friends and–

Of COURSE we’re talking about Amy Keating-Rogers, writer extraordinaire, awards-nomination-collector, and ninja. Didn’t think she was a ninja? That’s what they all want you to think.

Join us to get all the low-down on season 4, thrash-metal ukelele tips, and hollow meteors filled with Oreo cooking filling (I’m not joking about the latter, it’s a thing!).

Manly Challenge – Philabundance

This week’s manly challenge, brought to you by FluffyMixer, is pretty basic: feed hungry people by helping Philabundance. You KNOW the answer is yes!

It’s beyond ironic, beyond tragic that in a country as prosperous as the United States, there are still people who go hungry every day. It doesn’t have to be that way, though!

Philabundance is a food bank in Philadelphia which helps to close the gap. By reaching out to food producers, restaurant suppliers, grocery wholesalers and the general public, they provide fresh food to over 70,000 people a week. That is some seriously good work! And they are among the most trustworthy of charities, having earned a four-star rating at CharityNavigator.org (a charity watchdog organization). And to magnify the power of your efforts, your donation will be matched one-for-five by Caerdwyn, up to a hundred dollars in matching funds. Bonus!

It’s really simple. You donate –> Philabundance gets food –> people get to eat that otherwise would go hungry.

Do the math. Donate. This is the heart of being a brony.

And it’s so freakin’ MANLY!

Stay PBBBLFTPT My Friends

Joining us at 5pm PDT, Monday May 19th on Stay Brony My Friends is FluffyMixer, the creator of Flufflepuff. Just one thing to say to that: PFFFTT

flufflepuff

What more can we PBBLT add? Flufflepuff is probably the BLBPBLBLB most beloved of all fan-created characters among bronies, and this is a rare *GASP* chance to chat with the one who knows her best. Just what secrets lie within PFT PFT PFT that taco-addled brain?

Only Chryssi knows… but soon all BLLPPT will be revealed… if you’re there, that is.
