Ken’s Campaign to Win Barbie’s <3

How come I didn’t receive the memo about this? Apparently, Ken and Barbie have broke up in 2004. The Malibu girl opted for a surfer dude called Blaine breaking Ken’s heart and now, 7 years later, Ken has finally forgave party and has launched a social media campaign to win the heart of his beloved again by Valentine’s day.

What is it about?

Ken and Barbie are an iconic couple; if you look-up the definition of the word, you’ll find Ken & Barbie written next to it. She dropped him like the accessory that he is for a surfer toy boy. If she didn’t run off with Blaine, Ken and Barbie would have been together for 50 years but Ken has a forgiving heart is leaving it up to the fans to decide whether they should get back together or not. By visiting Facebook.com/barbie you will be able to vote on whether or not they should give it another shot.

The campaign is partly done to promote the new sweet talking Ken toy.

Underheard in New York: Listening to the Homeless Tweet

There are thousands of homeless people around the world, with no one to listen to their voices, share with them their dreams or sooth their fears…. This is why the “Underheard in New York” initiative began.

Idea & Objectives:

Underheard in New York is an initiative to help homeless New Yorkers speak for themselves through Twitter. “In a time when communication is all around us, we felt it was necessary to give a voice to the people who needed it most. Between Jan. 2009 and Jan. 2010 the total number of unsheltered individuals within New York City rose an estimated 34%.

Four homeless people — Danny (@putodanny), Derrick (@awitness2011), Albert (@albert814) and Carlos (@jessie550) — were given their own prepaid cell phone, a month of unlimited text messaging and a Twitter account.
