MOMS MATTER CHALLENGE

April 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Do you care about the mothers of the World? Are you a creative person?

Well, “for too many women around the world, childbirth is hardly safer today than it was 100 years ago. By the time you’ve finished reading this, a woman will have died from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth. And for every woman who dies, 20 more will suffer injury, infection or disease”.

This interesting challenge on the ‘Search for Obvious’ website calls all the creative people around the World to join hands to create more awareness about the plight of mothers around the world.


The Challenge:
Use your creative genius to show that moms around the world deserve more! Quality maternal health is not an option it’s a right!
They are calling for:
  • The most retweetable tweet of all time
  • A New York Times-worthy column that would make Nick Kristof proud
  • An iconic print ad or poster
  • Guerrilla marketing or public art that commands immediate Instagarm and yfrog-ing action
  • A must-see must-share video that would hold its own against TED’s Ads Worth Spreading
  • THE UNEXPECTED. YOU DECIDE…GO CRAZY!
Click here for more information.

The deadline for submissions is April 17th at 11:59pm Pacific.
To submit, simply email your name and all links to images, videos, text, or the unexpected to: moms@searchfortheobvious.com
EXTRA POINTS AWARDED TO SUBMISSIONS THAT ARE LIVE ON THE WEB (flickr / YouTube / twitter / wherever) + EXTRA EXTRA POINTS FOR COMMENTS, RETWEETS, VIEWS, LIKES, AND FAVORITES.

OpenIDEO Maternal health initiative

April 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

I absolutely LOVE this OpenIDEO’s idea of generating innovative initiatives that helps “explore how mobile technologies can be used to improve maternal health (particularly in pregnancy and childbirth)”.  The ideas move from general inspiration to conceptualization, then to applause then finally to the refine stage. At this time there are 20 ideas being refined. The final idea is unveiled on April 22, 2011!

I can’t wait to see which idea wins.
