It's that time of year again! We are keeping this project running. As most Haruppi fans know, she's had a rough year due to injuries, not entering election, etc. It's more important now than ever to get our well wishes in and keep her spirits up in the coming months. We're looking forward to getting all your messages! As in the previous years, you can submit a text or photo message. Option 1: Photograph option. Get a piece of paper. Decorate it! Put whatever you want on it - stickers, drawings, messages, a picture (please stay away from portraits taken by others or any material that might be copyrighted). To submit - we are all digital, so please work with the following options: Take a photograph of your page and email it to us! or Scan your page and mail the file to us! <-- Best option if it's a handmade artistic message like a drawing or any fan art, it will still maintain its quality. or Create the page in Photoshop (or similar editing software) and email the file to us! <-- Best option if you're doing anything digital. OR You may also send in any normal picture that you’ve taken with birthday greetings. Hold a birthday sign or a message up, or put up a birthday banner somewhere in your area to show Haruppi that her international fans love her. Option 2: Birthday message Send us a short birthday message for Haruppi! English or Japanese only. There's no limit to how much you can write, as long as it's within reasonable length. Notes: On ANY submission: please include your name/username and your country in your message. If you're from the USA, you may include your state as well. Do NOT include any personal or direct contact information such as e-mails or Twitter usernames, etc. You can email your messages and photo to us at firstname.lastname@example.org ♛ This year, we are also doing three mini themes that you can try as well - hats, foods, and locations! 1. FOOD! As we all know, one of Haruppi's favorite things is good! If it wasn't for her hectic idol lifestyle, she'd probably be the size of a small planet because she loves food so much! But even for our cute glutton, there are probably many foods she has never eaten or doesn't know about. So we're making it our goal to give Haruppi a delicious food bucket list from her international fans' favorite foods. So what we need from you? We need a photo of your favorite food from your area. It can be home made, or from a restaurant, but please no chain restaurants or fast foods. *Please do not put any filters on these photos, we will be editing them for the same theme and style on the pages. 2. LOCATIONS! Have you ever wished to have Haruppi visit your corner of the world? Here's your chance! Send us a picture of an iconic place in our town, city or country. A place that visitors would see. Through the magic of editing, we will have Haruppi visit that location and show her what she would look like there! 3. HATS! Haruppi has often been seen to have a love of hats - help us make her a world collector of hats. Send us a picture of a unique and cultural piece of head gear and we will flood her collection with hats, hats, hats! Whether it's a 10 gallon hat from the heart of Texas, a bowler, or a fedora, let her be the most fashionable idol the AKB world has ever seen. The deadline for this project is August 31!
