Unless you are completely new to my blog you will know that I am hella awkward. Which is why hearing that Clorets is calling on SA to help them create a limited edition board game based on life’s awkward moments totally got my attention.
Apparently Clorets, the #1 fresh breath expert, believes that in moments like these (the oh my word I just hugged the wrong person/greeted someone who was not looking at me/ forgot my wallet in the car with the cashier staring at me moments), we all need a little more confidence and a boost that will make us Breathe Out Proudly, For Longer.
This is why Clorets will be calling game-time on life’s awkward moments as it sets out to create Mzansi’s first limited edition board game this summer.
Breathe Out Proudly, For Longer – The Game, will be a culmination of SA’s best awkward moments, that when played, will embrace, tackle and eliminate all those awkward moments through a boost of confidence and laughter!
To create The Game, Clorets will need our help (fellow awkward country folk) They will be calling on South Africans to share stories where you needed that extra bit of confidence to keep going.
To participate and help drive the collection of these stories, tune into Hot FM, Algoa FM and Smile FM from 18th to 22nd of November 2019 during the breakfast shows.
