Charity Comic - Vinyl Scratch's Glasses by muffinshire Charity Comic - Vinyl Scratch's Glasses by muffinshire
Clivo100 is leading a fundraising drive to pay for tests and treatment for a friend, Robyn, who suffers from Irlen Syndrome, a visual-perceptual disorder with some similarities to dyslexia. Irlen Syndrome sufferers experience difficulties in reading text, among other symptoms. Clive is running a fundraiser on Indiegogo with a goal of raising the US$800 needed to cover the costs of evaluations, lab tests and special lenses to help correct Robyn's problem and allow her to complete her studies. They have already raised more than half the funds needed, and since both he and his friend Robyn are bronies, Clive approached me to help raise awareness and make a push for that goal by writing and drawing a pony comic. Here then is my imagined "origin story" for Vinyl Scratch's signature look, in a tale that shows how a little generosity can make a huge difference to someone's life.

The Indiegogo fundraising page can be found here: [link] , so please give what you can.

Please direct any questions about the fundraiser to clivo100.


Update: Equestria Daily has featured this in one of their comics posts.

Update: Goal achieved! Thanks to some amazing displays of charity, Clive and Robyn have reached their total. There are truly wonderful people in this community, as these outpourings of generosity in the many different fundraising drives going on have shown. Today, I am proud to be a brony, and so should you all be. If you still want to donate though, please do - Clive has made it clear that any surplus will go to the Irlen Institute, helping others with the same condition.

Update: The Irlen Institute, a charity leading research and awareness of the condition, has featured this comic on their Facebook page.

Im pretty sure the name of the magazine could have been chosen better, but nevertheless, it's a good comic.

I always love it when these two are portrayed as friends rather than lovers.:) (Smile)

I may not have Robyn's sight problems, but as a painfully near-sighted person who always needs his glasses on, I can sympathize. This is going in my favorites.
