The Responsibility Project – A project aimed at initiating discussions about responsibility and what it means to each individual through an online community which includes various interactive tools including independent short films, discussion guides, a blog, etc. The project started when Liberty Mutual received a huge, positive response to their TV ads. A lot of the respondents were teachers/educators who showed the ads in their classrooms to initiate the discussion of responsibility with their students.

Thumbplay – “The #1 mobile content destination in the U.S., is offering a variety of ringtones that will help people remember to take care of their taxes before the last minute rush. Each and every time a consumer’s cell phone will ring, they can be reminded to file their taxes.Of course, those of us who have already filed our tax return and received (and possibly spent) our refund shouldn’t be left out in the cold. For them, Thumbplay has collected a variety of ringtones and games that consumers can use to celebrate their newly received checks. Nothing like hearing the O’Jays’ “For the Love of Money”, every time your phone rings to remind you of that nice fat check you got in the mail.”
