    I'd love to do something for this, but I'll see how my clay Discord turns out first

    I don't know what is going on with a auction, but the fact ya'll are planning to do stuff to help a charity instead of keeping the money for yourself makes me think of the bronys as even better people, as if that was possible. :3

    Just putting in a charity suggestion here. The National Autistic Society.
    Reason I suggested that is because it seems quite a few people on the forums (and most likely within the pool of worldwide bronies) have some variant of Autism, or maybe Aspergers, myself included. Just my 2c.

    I would have voted for this too, but CF has my vote. By the way, will the money go to just one charity, or will it be split between the 3 according to vote %age?

    Don't know what I'm making yet. May make a philomena or something. Can talk with you about it at the Manchester meet, make sure we don't make the same thing?

    And damn right I'm going, got my 20% cooler ticket and everything!

    As for the voting, I've not voted yet. Going to have a look at some charity's to suggest.

    Just one, I'm thinking, though if we raise a lot, we could split it between an appropriate number. It really depends on the amount, and quality, of the merch we get donated.

    In regard to the charity auction, I presume you want some original/exclusive artwork ? Or can I just get a framed print of something I've already made/released and offer you that ? c:

    Talk to Tomb and others and see if you can do prints of your covers. I'd get one If I was going

    Haha, that's exactly what I was thinking, and if not for BUCK then I was considering making Prints of them to sell. Although I don't think I want to do it this year due to it being my first time at something like this.

    EDIT:
    Well, Tomb gave the A-OK
    Just waiting for an answer to that first question now xD

    An non-exclusive framed print is fine, so long as it's something people will want to buy.
