Do Gooders: BBG Added as Corporate Sponsor with University of Oklahoma Benefit Concert for International Student Relief

Sometimes BBG needs to take a stand. We wish we could do this for every university, but doing something is a start.

For Immediate Release

University of Oklahoma School of Music Benefit Concert for International Student Relief

With travel policies constantly changing, international student bodies across college campuses have been significantly impacted and are in dire need of emergency funding to get through the summer, as many of these students will not be able to return to their countries to access home banking.  Without this ability, combined with the fact that international students cannot legally work in the US, they are essentially stuck with no means of support.

The OU School of Music, in partnership with the College of International Studies, will put on a benefit concert on May 8, 2017 at the OU School of Music Concert Hall, to raise essential funding that will help OU students in need. 

BBG is proud to be sponsoring this event.  

If you would like to add additional support for international students in need:

500 W. Boyd St.

The Bright Bright Great team had a minute to catch up  Advertising Week regarding memorable mascots for #nationalcerealday (March 7).

15 Cereal Mascots Breakfast Wouldn’t Be the Same Without

For decades, they’ve shared their worlds with us by the bowlful with sweet cereals packed with adventure and excitement in every bite. Some of these fantastic concoctions are “gr-r-reat!” while others are magically delicious. If you want more, all you had to do was follow your nose — unless you’re a silly rabbit.

We’re talking about cereal mascots, of course, beloved breakfast enthusiasts who understand that this isn’t the most important meal of the day, but a way of life. Some are leprechauns and bees while others are vampires and seafaring captains. In honor of National Cereal Day, we’re heading down a marshmallow memory lane with the ad community to gab about the cereal icons that breakfast just wouldn’t be the same without.
