• Stay Brony My Friends Charity with Ingrid Nilson

    Stay Brony My Friends is back with another celebrity guest and this time it's everyone's favorite rock enthusiast Maud! Find out how the person behind Maud really ticks and learn a thing or two about yoga, cycling and more!

    As usual with Stay Brony My Friends there is a new charity to support this week with Ingrid picking Project True as her charity of choice. Project True deals with self image and eating disorders, a problem in our 'perfection' focused society. Interested in helping? Check after the break for the full details!

    Another Stay Brony My Friends show has come and gone, and another fine guest came to entertain us and teach us all about the magic of friendship. And this time a little Yoga too!
    Ingrid Nilson joined Dustykatt and Screwball to talk all things Maud Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Yoga and bicycling in the rain! For those that don't know Ingrid played Maud Pie in our favorite show as well as Raspberry Torte in the latest incarnation of Strawberry Shortcake. She also has been on some TV programs as well as a few movies. 
    But her true love is Yoga, as well as het charity Project True which helps deal with self image and eating disorders!

    Self-image, with respect to how we view our bodies, is the heart of many eating disorders. Bombarded by advertising and “perfect” body-ideals by the media, many people find themselves in self-destructive eating patterns, obsession with exercise leading to steroid abuse, and depression. People who can’t match their “perfect” physical self-image either give up and overeat into obesity, or drive themselves into a hospital… or into an early grave. This isn’t a minor issue.

    Recovering from a lifetime of exposure to unrealistic and unhealthy body-images is not easy, but that’s exactly what Project True is about. They’re up to the challenge, and so are we! Your donation will go to education, treatment programs, training teachers and fitness instructors, and even to help businesses do their part. Better yet…
    We’ve got a dollar-for-dollar match from Porte Development Company, in addition the the usual one-for-five from Caerdwyn. This means that every dollar you donate is multiplied by 240%. Talk about leverage! And they’re so excited about our support they’ve plastered us all over their main page!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Project True’s donations are via PayPal. They will collect the names and donation amounts and send them to us, but they won’t be visible on the website. Also, Paypal’s web designers are idiots. If you are donating from someplace other than Canada, when you select the country, you have to click somewhere on the side to force the page to display the proper list of states/provinces.

    Let’s do this.
