    Sanrio Small Gift LA

    To celebrate 50 years of Sanrio, they decided to tour America with their Small Gift Pop Up Shops. I visited their Los Angeles stop but you can still catch the stops in Atlanta and Miami. Find all the information here about the events. If you are unable to make those locations, you can still purchase some of the special anniversary items on the Sanrio website here. There was a sweater at the shop in LA that I really wanted but they ran out in my size. So I was told to watch the Sanrio website because they will be adding exclusive items weekly.

    Hello Kitty Online Donating to Haiti Efforts Through Guild Competition

    Hello Kitty Online, Sanrio’s casual MMORPG featuring the cute classic cat, has entered the fray of organizations donating to Haiti relief efforts. Like other game companies, they’re offering up some fun that translates to a real-world donation to Doctors Without Borders, who are currently responsible for a large portion of medical assistance. Sanrio is doing this in Hello Kitty Online with a Food For Friends guild event, starting January 21. In this event, guilds compete for points usable in the “Item Mall.” Items purchased in the mall are then traded for donation points, which vary from day to day.
