Help a non-profit win a social media makeover

I'm back from China now and I'm catching up on emails. Jan Brown, Founder & Executive Director-Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women, sent me the following note.

Each year, MindComet, the interactive agency behind the CommuniCause campaign gives back to the community by providing non-profit organizations free-of-charge agency services and donations. This year they are allowing America to nominate and vote for their favorite charity that they'd like to see win the grand prize of a Social Media Makeover valued at $25,000.

A winner will be randomly selected from the top ten charities that receive the most votes and upon awarding the winner, MindComet will provide the winner with expert consulting services to help improve their social media presence and fundraising outreach.

Please go to our website, click on the help my cause button at the top of the home page and vote for DAHMW to win a social media makeover...our ranking is starting to go up and we need you all to vote in order to win! After you have voted please send out this notice your friends and family and ask them to do the same.

Beer Ad in back of Taxi

ZhuJiang beer has a really clever ad placed on the windows of taxi cabs. I agree with the original blog post author in that the brand gets lost as the window rolls down. The message of "it's ok to drink as long as you get a taxi" may be hard to understand too.

The Top 40 Real Men of Genius commercials

As a former intern at DDB Chicago, I had the good fortune of meeting the creative team behind these ads. Before interning, I thought that these guys just sat around all day and came up with funny ideas. After hanging out with them a little bit, I realized how focused one has to be to do humor.
