Tampon Run game – fighting menstrual taboo one 8-bit tampon at a time

Women spend over 3,000 days of their lives menstruating. Pretty normal stuff. Yet, many people feel uncomfortable when it comes to discussing anything related to menstruation - except for the classic put down: “you’re a bit grumpy. Are you on your period?”

This is why Andy and Sophie, two teenagers from Girls Who Code, decided it was time to end the awkward and help the discussion ‘flow’.

Responsible Young Drivers: Watch what happens when a Gran Turismo champion starts racing drunk

Watch what happens when a Gran Turismo champion starts racing drunk.
It’s what you expect. It may seem obvious but the comments on YouTube are sometimes shocking:

- They have to fake it, the “gamer” play a role and do not play the game, it think he can get first place with 1 promille, but he wont be so fast.
- How can this be real he only has 0.9 Promille wtf is that ?
- I guess it was his first drink ever. so lame.

There are also positive reactions and it is even discussed. On a platform where it belongs.

Video is from the Belgium Responsible Young Drivers.

“You can’t restart life
Don’t drink and drive”

The Red Cross has launched an international partnership with Electronic Arts, makers of the game Sim City. Now, when disaster such as a tornado, earthquake or hurricane hits your virtual town, you’ll be able to buy a Red Cross intervention team who will treat your Sims for their injuries. After development costs have been taken into account, Electronic Arts will donate at least $100,000 to each national Red Cross taking part – for them to spend on real humanitarian interventions.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
