Calling All Ponies And Bronies – You Are Needed

Eileen Montgomery writes,

Michael Morones, an 11 year old boy in North Carolina, recently attempted to take his own life due to bullying received on account of being a fan of the show My Little Pony.

Fortunately, the attempt was caught and halted in time to save his life, but he sustained severe brain damage. The family has reached out and is asking if the community from the show he loves can help out with the medical expenses.

You can find out more about how you can help, here. And see an interview with Michael's stepfather below.

Eileen quotes his family saying,

Michael is a huge lover of all music. He started to learn Violin because of Lindsey Stirling and harmonica because of my career as a musician years ago. The more people that can share this the better. We want this beyond viral for two reasons, one to share the anti bullying message and two to share Michael's amazing faith in God and I know if Michael was awake right now he would want to give nothing but forgiveness and love to the bully's who teased him so they would know what it's like to be accepted without harsh words or violence.
