Every once in a while a genius idea is born, the Blenz Red Band is one such idea. For the single people in the city, asking someone out on a date seems daunting. Couple that with the fact you don’t really know who is single and the task becomes almost insurmountable. Perhaps that is why many just stick to playing video games in their parents basements for the rest of their lives. Fear no more as Blenz Coffee is making it easier this Valentine’s season.
This year Blenz is marking Valentine’s Day with something that has never been done before. They are giving singles in Vancouver a way to meet each other through “Blenz Red Band” ‐ a customized sleeve they developed. If you are single you would grab this red sleeve at any Blenz location throughout February, prompting other singles to approach you and vice versa.
Blenz will be promoting the “Blenz Red Band” through Facebook and Twitter from February 1 to 28, 2011. Anyone who mentions #BlenzRedBand on Twitter or “Blenz Red Band” in their status updates on Facebook during the month of February will be entered into a daily draw to win a “Blenz Romance Kit” full of Valentine’s themed prizes. A grand prize will be awarded to the couple that submits the best “Blenz Love Story” – a story on how they met each other through the Blenz Red Band. Submissions are accepted on Facebook and Twitter, and the grand prize winner will be selected on March 1, 2011.
The Blenz Red Band website will be a blog‐style site where local bloggers will be highlighting posts related to dating and relationships. Visit the website for a full listing of our media, prize, and content sponsors.
A promotion launch party is scheduled for February 1, 2011 from 5pm to 7pm at Blenz Yaletown (338 Helmcken Street, Vancouver). For more information or to attend this event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now walk into Blenz and leave with a coffee and a date!
