BUT, this is no sad ending! While it is a bummer to know there are plenty who wont get the chance to get a pair of pony shoes they were looking forward to, it was a damn good run while it lasted, and I personally had a blast making these designs. Yes, it hurts to see all my hard work go down the drain, but in some small way I know it was worth it. Plus, I've accrued a nice chunk of change to spend on Toys For Tots donations come Christmas time. Since last Christmas, these shoes have netted roughly $565. That kinda change buys a lot of Pony toys. If these shoes had remained unnoticed until Christmas, I have no doubt it would have broken a thousand.
Plus, it's a little premature to call this an ending. I'll be saving the money in my own little Pony Fund, and looking for ways to increase that number as well, the more donations I can buy the better. Hell, I may even make some new pony merch in the future, though maybe not with Zazzle since I'm really on their shit list now. And I want to say thanks to everyone that participated in this pony shoes project of mine. Whether you invested in a pair, gave feedback, or even just took the time to look. I mean it, thank you.
Without a doubt, Friendship is magic.
