People Are Hating on Santa

We got a couple more interesting tidbits that we’re including in this final installment of “PR Expressions of Holiday Cheer” (unofficial title).

Converseon has created a “Santament Score” to quantify how people really feel about Santa Claus. This man travels around the world and down chimneys delivering gifts and yet, as of this post, nearly a third of tweets about him were negative. Ungrateful bitches!

Converseon is donating $1 to Toys for Tots for each tweet containing the hashtags #santanice or #santanaughty. They’ve raised less than $100 as of this post, so get on it folks. You have until New Year’s to type your philanthropic tweets.

C. Fox Communications, a D.C.-area firm that works with “mission-driven” organizations, has partnered with a local ice cream company, Moorenko’s Ice Cream, on a limited edition flavor — Bone Appetit, a mix of vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, and chocolate covered pretzels. Bone Appetit will be available throughout January, with proceeds from the sales going to The Washington Animal Rescue League.
