Hello Kitty for President
Who doesn’t love Hello Kitty? She’s cute, lovable and loves pink. So it totally makes sense that she’s running for the President of the United States (albeit virtually). Kitty, already has 10 million Facebook fans, though that’s hardly surprising giving her history. For almost 40 years, Hello Kitty has inspired millions of fans from around the world to enjoy life and not to take oneself so seriously. In honor of her spirit, the makers of Hello Kitty are launching a campaign.
Jill Koch, Senior Vice President of Brand Management and Marketing at Sanrio, Inc. says “This campaign is a celebration of what she represents: friendship, fun and happiness.” As part of the celebration this month true to Sanrio’s, ‘small gift, big smile’, philosophy, Hello Kitty’s Friendship Party street teams and door-to-door canvassers will give away free Hello Kitty for President campaign bumper stickers, buttons, and yard signs throughout Washington DC. (Cool, right?) If you’re a Facebook friend, then you will be able to share free digital and printable campaign goodies with the Hello Kitty for President Facebook Gifts App. Campaign coverage, free gifts with purchases and select limited edition products will be available exclusively online at Sanrio.com. Sanrio stores will offer free campaign buttons during the weekend of October 19th.
Starting November 1, Hello Kitty for President’s Campaign Headquarters will pop-up for a week-long residence at LivingSocial’s 918 F Street.
The pop-up campaign shop will offer limited edition Hello Kitty for President collectible products including t-shirts, campaign kits, plush, a tote bag and red, white and blue headband bows. Hello Kitty will also be making an appearance leading up to election week and will host a celebratory event before the election votes are counted. And because Hello Kitty cares about our youth,she will also be partnering
up with 826DC, the newest chapter in 826 National network of nonprofit writing centers, supports students ages 6-18 with their creative and
expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
