What a wonderful to get people involved! Way to go!!! 😄

Thanks!  I love doing giveaways and I want to offer a little extra excitement / anticipation, lol!

Well, Yes it is, but I don't see what I could add than what is currently written above.

The more letters Basic Fun! receive the more strength the petition has ^^ Imagine the impact of getting hundreds of letters from all parts of the world asking for the same thing.

We non-US people HAVE to step in and support stuff like this. Reality check for the unmotivated, and without any negative intent, but the US is the original home of MLP and all the companies involved in this are based there. The US will get things that we won't get unless we tell them that we are here too and that we want them. I can't stress this enough. If you don't believe me, the Loyal Subjects are a good example. The US gets stuff we don't get , and if we aren't making our voices heard, we won't get.

People in the UK are not often motivated to do anything except complain after the fact. We're all pretty guilty of leaving the hard work up to other people, it's often in our nature - but there is a HUGE following of MLP in the UK. Let's not forget that Hasbro uses the UK as a dumping ground for excess stock from other countries and has done so since the 1990s.  The UK coordinates a lot of Hasbro's European operations for G4, too. And MLP survived here longer than it survived in the US in two generations. I am speaking as a British person, so if you think this is an insulting generalisation, remember I'm applying it to myself as well ;)

In terms of continental Europe, some of you guys had G1 longer than any other country. The rest of you kept G2 going when everywhere else had given up. Some of you also had ponies made in your countries.

In terms of Australia and New Zealand - they will keep cutting you out unless you make them hear you on this.

So basically, international people MUST write. Whether it be a letter by mail, or facebook, or whatever method, it is MORE important for people outside of the US to communicate ideas. Because US companies will always think of the US market first. And it's for us to make them realise we're here too.

In terms of this, I'm game to support this so long as it's ok that I will write about the mystery pony as welll in my letter. I like the celestials but I am more motivated for the Midnight Castle pony because she doesn't belong to any particular country, in a sense. She's a true mystery for all of us. Whereas the celestial ponies came out of US design stuff and we don't know if they would be global or not, I feel like Mystery Pony is pretty much an iconic pony for everyone to attach themselves to. So if she can be involved in this campaign too, I'm in ;)

I will write, but I need to do my lesson plan first ;)

@LM - problem with your conditions. In the UK it's more normal for them to print a label at the PO at the time of sending. That means it's not easy to get a photo of a stamped addressed envelope. We're not all posting domestically, and getting an international stamp means going to the PO for it...because you can't get them easily in other places outside the PO.

I agree with you SO much! We need to make noise and make them aware that we want those ponies too. If they only get letters from the US, and they decide to release them they will only sell them in the US.

And what you say about people in the UK letting others do the hard work.. It's not only UK. It happens here is Spain too. :/

I hope people take this seriously ^^

Crosses Fingers, hopefully the photo of my letter/envelope will work. If not just imagine some stationary with the celestial ponies printed in the background and my letter printed on top.

I understand that it will be more costly / difficult for people outside the US, and I truly appreciate the extra effort of any non-Americans who send letters.  <3   I did consider giving international letter writers an extra drawing entry, but that would be opening up a can of worms . . . Like, one person in the US might be a block away from the post office while another is 25 miles from a post office, should I also be giving the person 25 miles away extra entries?  So at the end of the day . . . it is what it is, one entry per letter.  :)

My hope is that people would be writing letters anyway, so the giveaway is just an additional little bonus.  :) 

Also anyone who reblogs the Tumblr post (which can be found here) gets one additional entry. :)

Karen, please tell me that stationary is available online? Because I will be writing every letter ever on that thing. I will include hand written letters when I pay bills. I will turn off my online bill pay to send in checks with hand written letters for that stationary.

Actually no, not online. I made the letter and envelope; printing/signs/etc is what I do for work, tis my job/business. So I took a moment to kinda get my point across to the company and design a background for the letter and envelope.

Agree! I would only keep it for this topic right now, as we are going to get to other release letters after.

The Fancy Swirls were set to be a U.K. Release as well. I have the original packaging proofs.
