etv online : Children in Need invites people to show their spots with pride in digital Pudsey ears campaign
The 2010 BBC's Children in Need campaign sees the return of its digital Facebook application this year taking the form of Digital Ears, which have been designed and developed by etv online.
Launched this week http://www.pudseyears.co.uk/ enables users to apply a pair of digital ears to an uploaded photo in exchange for a £1 donation to the charity. Users can pick from two designs; original Pudsey ears or new character Blush’s ears. Once happy with the size and positioning of their new ears, users can either download their resulting image, or show their spots with pride by posting it onto social networking sites including Twitter and Facebook.
The campaign follows the original 2009 initiative devised by etv online where users could select from a range of Pudsey based apparel including bandanas and bow ties. The initial campaign raised over £10,000 in under 2 weeks.
