For more than 30 years, the beloved My Little Pony franchise from Hasbro, Inc. has inspired friendship and fun in the hearts of fans around the globe. The franchise has become a pop-culture phenomenon through its socially relevant messages of kindness and acceptance. To commemorate this year’s International Day of Friendship on July 30th, the My Little Pony franchise is igniting a global social movement that empowers consumers to celebrate the magic of friendship through random acts, encouraging others to “friend it forward.”
Select retailers and Discovery Family Channel will be celebrating by “friending it forward” to their customers and viewers. Walmart, Target, Toys ‘R’ Us and Amazon will each offer an online promotion on July 30th on select My Little Pony merchandise, while Discovery Family Channel will air the mid-season premiere of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic on Saturday, July 30th at 11:30am EST followed by a mini-marathon of friendship-themed episodes, chosen by viewers at DiscoveryFamilyChannel.com/Friendship.
Fans can join in on the fun by sharing their own acts of friendship via their social channels, tagging posts with #FriendshipisMagic and #FrienditForward or using the special My Little Pony filter on Snapchat, available on July 30th. For each act of friendship shared using #FriendshipisMagic and #FrienditForward between now through August 31st, Hasbro will make a $1 donation to generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light, up to $50,000. generationOn will also be encouraging its community to “Friend it Forward” by providing kids and parents helpful tools and resources to engage in acts of friendship through service opportunities.
