Yahoo Philippines kicks off Purple Hunt




Yesterday, Yahoo! Philippines launched the “Project Purple” — a social movement that ties Yahoo’s online services to promote creativity, free expression and innovation.

One of their first campaign is the Purple Hunt on the Yahoo! Philippines Homepage. Participants will be asked to solve online clues and find items around Metro Manila. The hunt starts on June 2.

Up for grabs are Purple Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Canon digital cameras, Blackberry Storm, iPod Touch, Macbook Air and Sony PlayStation 3. All prizes are custom-designed by volunteer Pinoy artist in purple theme. The grand prize is a Honda Jazz car with custom paint created by WeWillDoodle.

    Am a proud mom who’d be surely taking a close watch of the “Purple Project”. My son Aaron is one of the Filipino artists taking part of the project. He is quite secretive; I’ll have to even do a “hunt” on the web for his submitted work:):)

    If you found the location, it doesn’t mean the prize is automatically yours. The winner will still be randomly chosen.
