    / Comments (0)

    Thanks to EVB and Meow Mix, there is now a Kickstarter for cats. Here’s how it works: Meow Mix Catstarter puts forth three exceptionally clever cat innovations including a cat bed shaped like a computer keyboard that’s warmed by your keystrokes.

    Visitors to the site will get to back their favorite projects and then get their friends to back them too. If they have an idea for another Catstarter project, they can even submit it to the site for the next wave of projects. Later this spring, Meow Mix will fund production of the Catstarter project with the most backers.

    The best part? Visitors can enter for a chance to win a limited edition winning product for their cats at home.

  • BSSP teams with Ferrell and Redford to help the Colorado River.

    / Comments (2)

    Will Ferrell takes on Robert Redford in a mock public debate. That's a sentence that's never been written before in history. But it has now thanks to a campaign created by Butler Shine Stern & Partners on behalf of the Redford Center, one of the six organizations leading the Raise the River campaign aimed at reconnecting the Colorado River to the Gulf of California.

    In a series of short films, Redford urges the public to support “Raise the River.” On the other side, Ferrell shills for the public to get behind a rival, “Move the Ocean” campaign. The fictitious “Move the Ocean” effort would expand the Pacific “several hundred miles inland” to reach the Colorado River, accomplishing the same goal as Raise the River but doing it in a way that also helps what Ferrell says is an important group in need – surfers. To add emphasis to the cause, Ferrell is joined in his efforts by top ranked surfer Kelly Slater.

    “The approach each man takes couldn't be more different,” explained Greg Stern, CEO of BSSP. “We thought that would be a good way to go beyond the expected public service announcement and get people to notice and take action on this important issue. Both Redford and Ferrell seek to restore the Colorado River, but Ferrell’s Move the Ocean adds a layer of comedy and further engagement. This is a new approach in getting people to notice and care about an important cause.”
