Also check out the previous post, Lauren Faust’s Trivia Donation Drive #1, and the related posts Odds and Ends #2 and Odds and Ends #3.

Lauren Faust has again answered a series of trivia questions on Twitter. For a $25 donation to the Indiegogo campaign of the Widlife Learning Center, you could get your season 1 question answered.

Remember, people paid for these, so, I don’t know, don’t look at them, I guess—or donate!

  • “@JaredReise I’m not sure I understand the question.” (2013-05-04 01:58Z)

    All sorts of interesting information – I think the biggest thing that got to me, was that Trixie went to Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns: I have to admit, I wouldn’t have expected that! :O
