EQLALogo

A little while back, we brought the news that the EQLA convention in Anaheim, CA would be postponed until the following year. Now it has been sadly confirmed on their Twitter account that this will not be the case, and that Equestria LA will be shut down. The event was popular for the two years that it ran, but they deserve respect for making this tough decision instead of running an event that could not be managed or afforded. We’ll let you know of any updates once they are sent to us.

A tragedy has struck part of our fandom today, readers.  Our friends over at BABSCon are sending out a call for help for the mother of the Vice Chair and Head of Programming and Events, Olivia Daniels.  Cheryl Daniels, widow since 2000 and working two jobs, has contracted acute liver failure brought on by a strain of Hepatitis C from a blood transfusion. Currently in the hospital, she does not have an adequate medical plan, and is in danger of having her house and car foreclosed and repossessed.  To help cover the strictly immediate costs, BABSCon is auctioning off two of their previously sold-out premium tickets on ebay.  And for those that can’t pitch in so much, there’s a gofundme option as well.  Stay after the break for the whole story, and let’s together help overcome this extreme hardship and suffering as a community.
