Katy Perry’s “Roaring” Onto The Mobile Screen With Intel’s 3-D Avatar App!

Today, December 4th, popular music sensation Katy Perry, along with Intel Corporation, announced that the music icon will launch her first 3-D messaging avatar! This custom-created avatar by Katy will be exclusively available on the awesome messaging application Pocket Avatars, a messaging service that lets people communicate via animated 3D avatars that serve as alter egos using camera phones that imitate gestures and facial expressions.

Rich Hannah, the general manager of Pocket Avatars at Intel Corporation says, “Katy’s dynamic approach to social media and strong connection to youth culture made her an ideal collaborator for the new Pocket Avatars by Intel service. She’s an icon with a relatable and fun personality, and an endless number of looks. By marrying Katy’s visual appeal with our innovative facial-tracking technology, we’re allowing her fans to express themselves as imaginatively as Katy herself.”

When you grab your Pocket Avatars app, you’ll be pulled into one of the most unique and innovative communication tools. “KatyCats” will be able to select her avatar from their broad selection, recording and sharing personalized messages mirroring their own voice and gestures. The avatars pretty much can do anything from big or small smiles, winking, raising eyebrows, blowing kisses and a whole lot more! The best part is, these messages can be sent to anybody through text, email or even social networks like Twitter or Facebook.

Pocket Avatars by Intel is a free mobile app available on both iPhone and Android. Since its launch in mid-June, more than 1 million avatars have been downloaded and the app has expanded to more than 30 countries, boasting a library of over 55 avatars, including cultural and seasonal favorites like the collegiate football characters, Annoying Orange, characters from The Lego Movie and a host of seasonally inspired characters. Many avatars are free; some require a nominal purchase for unlimited use. The Katy Perry avatar is priced at $1.99.

For broadcast and visual assets, visit intel.synapticdigital.com/. For more information on Pocket Avatars by Intel, download the app from Apple’s App Store or Google Play or even visit www.pocketavatars.com/.

Zendaya Surprises Local New York City School To Promote UNICEF — See The Photos!

zendaya unicef

After actress and music artist, Zendaya, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Spokesperson, promoted UNICEF on Good Day New York yesterday, October 27th, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Spokesperson, made a surprise visit to P.S. 163 Alfred E. Smith Elementary in New York City earlier today, October 28th.

Arriving at the elementary school, an unsuspecting class received a shock as she made her way into the room. Zendaya spent one-on-one time with the kids as she helped them decorate their very own Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF boxes to take home.  Later on, hundreds of students gathered for a surprise assembly led by the star herself. The kids were able to learn more about the campaign, what it means to her and how they could also help save the lives of other children around the world.  Ten lucky students had the chance to participate in a Q&A session at the end of the assembly. Questions ranged from what costumes Zendaya wore as a kid to where donations specifically go and of course, whether or not she would be able to give everyone a hug.

This year, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has been made even easier through the option of fundraising digitally via Crowdrise.  A personal page can be created in just a few simple steps for those who may not be able to go door-to-door, allowing friends and family members to donate with the click of a button.

Although orders for collection boxes are closed at this time, it is still possible for participants interested in going door-to-door to download a printable label and create their own box.  Donations collected through the campaign provide medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education to children all over the globe.  No contribution is too small – with just $1, UNICEF can provide a child with clean drinking water for 40 days.  Trick-or-treaters all over America have raised more than $170 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF since 1950.

Do scary good this Halloween and learn more about the Trick-or-Treat For UNICEF campaign by going to www.unicefusa.org.
