I just got this email from a publicist, and I’m having a really hard time understanding what on Earth it is even talking about. Please help!
Nickelodeon is creating a limited-edition series of celebrity-designed backpacks for auction this summer. With more participants to be announced shortly, Slash and Shakira along with Salma Hayek Pinault, John Leguizamo and Shakira will put their personal touches on special Dora-themed backpacks. A limited quantity of each backpack will be auctioned off globally, in countries including the United States, France, the UK, Mexico, Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. One hundred percent of the U.S. proceeds will benefit the Children’s Defense Fund. One hundred percent of international proceeds will go toward childhood education in each respective country.
So, Slash and John Leguizamo are designing Dora the Explorer backpacks to be auctioned off in Greece? No, that can’t be right. Too ridiculous. Hmmm. What a fun puzzle!
