Mattel Barbie: Hope (Cancer Awareness) Campaign
This is interesting the other day I ranted about how toy companies, Mattel in specific for the particular post in question. Talking about how they amongst other toy companies don’t really cater to anyone outside the norm, and really people in the norm. I was in sorts ranting about how Mattel makes all these “fabulous” hard to reach renditions of how people should look and sell it to impressionable kids (There Barbie line to be more specific). Which was orignally sparked by a post a friend of mine made along the same lines on Facebook.. (Original post “Mattel Barbie: Hope (Cancer Awareness)“)\r\n\r\nSo here I am a a handful of days later and I am doing my normal routine of running down my friends daily posts, and posts by all my “liked” pages and I see.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhich I thought was awesome. What it is, is someone campaigning for the same concept, actually trying to get Mattel to make a Barbie character that is bald for children who endure things like chemo and end up losing there hair. In a sense making something that may actually help them coupe a little bit better with everything that is going on in their life’s a little bit more.\r\n\r\nThe page the shared facebook link goes to is: http://www.facebook.com/BeautifulandBaldBarbie for those who are curious and wish to follow up further, as I intend to follow myself. Well anyway found that interesting felt like sharing. I seriously hope some day companies like Mattel actually start doing things like this more and more. It isn’t fair to society as a whole to shine a beacon of light on only one way of being. Barbies in particular for several reason but that’s maybe more to rant on another day.
