Custom Pony Visa Cards - For a good cause? by



So it's not often that Horse News gets an email from companies wanting to promote their wares on our site... Well okay it is actually pretty often, but we have a consistent response to their inquiries. Horse News, being a not-for-profit website, never accepts money for placement on the site (and we're often shocked anyone would want to be in the first place) and that we have a different set of requests. MOST of those groups then never contact us again.

This is not true however, for the team at Card.com

They came to us last month, because they wanted more bronies to hear about their custom Prepaid Visa Cards, which are adorned with pictures of My Little Pony. We told them, that we wanted to continue to support victims of sexual abuse through our favorite charity RAINN.

Well, these guys are pretty awesome, and we were able to make an arrangement.

Instead of us receiving any payments, RAINN receives the benefits instead! Isn't that awesome? Gotta hand it to them for doing this. Now we want to encourage all of you to click that image link and check them out, and maybe even give these cards a shot, because the more support you show for this, the more support we can give to RAINN in the end!

As for the cards themselves, there's over 20 designs to pick from. They're licensed by Hasbro, and you can even get one with Spike on it if you want. According to the site, you can use them anywhere you would a normal Visa card, they're basically debit cards. It also says "No Credit Check",
"No overdraft fees, late fees or penalty fees", "No minimum balance", "Access to ATMs worldwide", and "Easy direct deposit".

So yeah. Not too shabby.

Thanks to Card.com and everyone else who worked with us to make this a reality.

RAINN is "The nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization".

  3. This is a cool thing you're doing here. I mean, I probably won't be getting any of these cards myself, but still. Good on you guys for doing this ;)

  4. The cards appeared on EQD a year ago with what appears to be 'no interest', so for them to approach HN feels like a desperation move.

    No Gilda? No thank you.

  6. laughing at the irony of dudes who regularly harass women/minors thinking they're good people because they promote RAINN, it's like a dog abuser giving money to a shelter

    1. laughing at the hypocrisy of tumblrinas who regularly harass and spread lies about men/bronies thinking they're good people because they promote victimization, it's like a Klan member belonging to the NAACP

      BTW: April Davis is not a minor, and is also the agressor

    2. "Harass women/minors"
      First: If by "harass" you mean "call them out on their unending bullshit" then yes absolutely
      Second: If by "women/minors" you mean "people" then yes, absoultely.
      But no, you're trying to say that Horse News is targeting people BECAUSE they're women or BECAUSE they're minors.
      No, Horse News calls out EVERYONE who's fucking up. Pretty often those people are straight, adult, white, men. You can't claim that just because a person who is getting called on their bullshit (like ones who are harassing celebrities on Twitter for no reason) happens to also be a female, that HN is "regularly harassing women". HN is an equal-opportunity wrecker of shit. Some of their writers ARE women and minors. Only someone who is prejudiced would reduce a person to their gender, and not judge them by the content of their character.
      Now, go be sexist somewhere else you anonymous sack of shit.

    4. >April Davis is an aggressor

      Did you type this out unironically thinking that anyone would believe a group of grown ass 300 lb autist men are afraid of a teenage girl?

      Delete
    5. >implying a person needs to be afraid of someone in order to be attacked by them
      Dachshunds are the most aggressive dog breed and I can assure you nobody is afraid of them. That doesn't prevent them from biting your hand and chomping at your feet.

      >300 pound men
      pretty sure Seth Green isn't 300 pounds.
      Oh yeah, that's right, you probably forgot about the time April and her boyfriend harassed Seth Green over twitter about a bit on Robot Chicken from half a decade prior.


      >teenage girl
      >turning 20 soon
      How long are you going to ride this "she's only a kid!" bullshit out?

      She's also a proven hypocrite. Show of hands who remembers her endless campaign against lewd images of ponies? Everyone?
      What's she doing nowadays?
      She's selling furry porn on her pony art blog. Which isn't actually anything new, because SHE WAS MAKING PONY PORN TOO. When did she do that?
      Oh, when she actually WAS a minor! Meaning she's also a criminal.

      So yeah, go ahead and tell me what an innocent harmless victim she is one more time. Try to convince me that HN securing funding for victims of sexual assault is somehow a bad thing and don't take a cent, while the likes of Pinkie Pony make pony porn and get paid for it on Patreon and sit and complain about the "evil brony rapists".

      You only make yourself look more pathetic.

    6. You almost convinced me, but I feel like your response was a couple paragraphs short, sorry.

    7. It's 2016. Bronies are ancient history, whining about how Molestia is "rape culture" is ancient history, this is all ancient history. None of this is even remotely relevent anymore, you fucking grandparents.

      Bronies are out, We Bare Bros are in. Get with the program and join the bro stack.

  8. At least horse news actually puts some effort in helping people out rather then victimising themselves and thinking constantly calling out people is helping people in any way. The truth: you aren't.. you are just annoying everyone.

    Also horse news staff partually consist of women
    Also stop harassing celebs on social media... those people also do their job and need to eat too you know.

    Good on ya horse news.

    1. So the answer to "is LaserPony as much of an autist as he looked in the BronyDoc?" is a hearty yes

      Delete
    2. Funny that you brought it up because it was kinda cringy to look back at it but that doesn't make your arguement any better. The fact is they are putting in some effort to do something good and you are shitting on that. That's not cool.
      Also why are you hiding as anon? are you scared?

      Delete
    3. Also that you use autistic as an insult says a lot about yourself. Minus my username here and my facebook group LaserPon3 the alias is pretty much gone. I am not a brony, I don't watch the show but I do lurk but I can't stand assholes who always have to guilt people EVEN when they are doing an actually good gesture.

      But hey who am I to talk right? I'm just some guy who was in a documentairy that I don't look back at with pride. Have fun calling me an autist.. I will use that time doing corporate work and getting somewhere with my life.

      Delete
    4. People who go around saying 'they're not a brony' do so in the context they're defacing the fandom...so please...Don't do that.

      If you have to reply to troll you're generally reinforcing their points so the best solution is to not even reply. Besides, that documentary will be there forever so embrace the fact the past can't be altered and some people may use that as a first impression of you.

    5. Does anyone still go "they're not a brony"? In the Year of Our Lord 2016?

    6. Apparently you care more than literally anyone else that it's 2016, like the world should be moving on to whatever pile of shit you believe in.

      >2016
      >nobody cares

      Grow up.

    7. And to 01:47, do you even have a clue what autism is? Or are you just another faggot who hops on every bullshit bandwagon 4chan shits out? Go read a book and enlighten your stupid retard ass.

      Delete
    8. If you're going to do anything, you might as well do it with verve.

      And being in a documentary about your hobby is pretty hard core. Even if you don't look on it with pride, at least give your past self a little credit.

    1. How many retards does it take to make a horizontal vertical post?

      Every one of them because they think it's funny.

      Not even PikaPetey is doing it anymore. Seriously. It was retarded when he did it, and it's still retarded.

  10. There are a lot of assholes in this fandom today. From hugbox hypocrites like Pinkiepony to the neverending "not brony, not autistic" sewage that pours out of /mlp/ and /pone/.

    The fact that you self-righteous horsefuckers obsess over Lauren is a downright joke. If she knew how much the phrase "horse pussy" was tossed around among her most devoted Followers she'd probably have a conniption. And that you all call her "mom" is just disturbing.

    A lot of people in the image board circle like to associate the term brony with fat, autistic neckbeards in fedoras and too-small pony shirts. Does jerking off to cartoon horses make you better, horsefuckers? Because most of the pictures I've seen of the /mlp/arties that routinely happen at cons consist of fat neckbeards with dakis drinking cheap beer and pretending they can socialize.

    And the worst offenders are the ones who won't even do that. Internet tough guys talking about wanting to taste Luna and fuck her ass while praising Faust and judging the rest of the fandom they refuse to partake in because they have all the social skills of a concrete floor and they'd have to clean the Cheeto dust caked on their hands, shirts and mouths to even look like a human being.

    Judge not, lest ye be judged. If you can't look in the mirror, maybe you shouldn't be judging people.

    1. post makes me lol

      If we're talking about mirrors, behold a hypocritical, judgie "assholes in the fandom today."

      Some people are going to be weird fucks in a fandom. The ones whom headcanon the Fausticorn as the Queen-Mother of their ponysona's people are probably the least dangerous in the grand scheme of things.
      And bronies have serious squads of folks whom try to ensure that an MLP safesearch is, you know, safe.

      Really, its all pretty friggin tame, especially when we can look at the proverbial next door and see how the furry fandom cannot divorce the fetish side from the "adult fan of talking cartoon animals" side.

      Bronies could be a *lot* worse, and cloppers tend to keep their weird fetish out of peoples' way. As an Ace brony since season 1, I don't go looking for pony porn and I've peobably been inadvertently exposed to as much horseporn as poke-porn incidentally by being on the internet.
      Now, I admit that I do bring some of that on myself by visiting this site- as its basically "Cartoon-horse-themed trainwreck: the E-zine" but still.
      fetishists leaving you the fuck alone is sometimes all you can ask for, and cloppers do that better than most any other fandom. (especially when accounting for population size)

      So chill your fucks, dude.
