My Little Pony (Friendship is Magic) merchandise!

This giveaway is now over. Congratulation to our very lucky winner: Dianne of Alberta Canada.

Happy International Friendship Day! While International Day of Friendship is normally observed on 30 July, many countries celebrate the day on the first Sunday of August, so today I am celebrating friendship.

Friendship is very important part of childhood. Friendship helps our children develop emotionally and socially.

For more than 30 years the My Little Pony franchise from Hasbro has empathized its messages of friendship, tolerance, respect, acceptance and kindness.

The animated series “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic,” produced by Hasbro Studios follows a colorful cast of pony friends as they embark on a journey of friendship, learning what it means to be a good friend and understanding what makes each person unique and special.

Speaking of the series, some of the most memorable characters and stories from “My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic” are jumping off of the TV and into your living room this year with the all new MY LITTLE PONY FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC COLLECTION line.

Your children can reenact their favorite moments from the animated series with this exciting assortment of themed play-sets and story packs, featuring collectible characters from the show. This series is all about the Sweet Apple Acres and the Apple Family.

Friendship plays a greatly important part not only in everyone’s life, but also in the community that we live in. Hasbro realizes this and that is why they have teamed up with generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light, on a global service campaign that uses the core cast of characters from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series to teach children about helping others.

The campaign, which globally kicked off two days ago invites both children and their families to celebrate friendship by asking them to visit, then completing acts of kindness and volunteering in their school, neighborhood, or community. Fans can also follow both Hasbro (@Hasbro) and generationOn (@generationOn) on Twitter and use #MLPFriendshipDay to join the conversation.

My Little Pony Celebrates Friendship Day

Each inspired by the attributes of a specific MY LITTLE PONY character, friendship activities include creating adopt me bandanas for animals in shelter, donating books to children in need,  cleaning up your local park and assembling health and wellness kits for families in need.

Service is a great way to help kids make new friends while taking action to make the world a better place,” said Kathy Saulitis, Senior Vice President of Programs, generationOn. “We are excited to partner with the My Little Pony brand to bring the joy of friendship and volunteerism to even more kids on International Day of Friendship and beyond.”

At Today’s Woman we invite you  and your children to participate the way your fellow pony friends would – by getting involved in simple service projects and performing acts of kindness that help others while strengthening the bond of friendship.

I do much in my community by donating to our local food bank to sponsoring a child in need through Coats for Kids, to donating to my local food bank, to simply taking time to talk to a senior at a retirement home.

Whether it’s spending time with your pet, helping out in your local community, or completing simple projects, you can help make a difference.

Fans can also follow both Hasbro (@Hasbro) and generationOn (@generationOn) on Twitter and use #MLPFriendshipDay to join the conversation.

    My best childhood friend lived right across the street from me. I was first to get married and then she left town to go to school and become a nurse. She is married and is a grandma like I am and we still keep in touch even though she no longer lives in my town. We talk on the phone and email. She was always there for me.

    My grandchildren participate each fall in a food drive for the local food bank. A few days before they put bags on the doors in the area they are assigned asking people to fill the bag and leave it on their steps on Saturday. They pick the bags up and load them into the car and then they are dropped off at a designated drop off site. I have driven them on it and they get so excited when they see a bag waiting to be picked up.
