If you’ve ever interacted with me, you’ll realize that i am an outgoing introvert. At first, I may seem daunting to approach but ultimately, after we get used to each other, it will be a more cordial relationship.
When I was growing up, I was super shy. I never went out to play. I used to wish I had a walkman so that I could sink into my own world. The only option I had was a Black & White TV, which didn’t have the most interesting content.
Having fallen in love with stories, I used to tell a lot of those when in class; I was a little cunning. As talkative as I was, I would land other kids in trouble and act as if I was concentrating the most. They would burst out laughing at my jokes.
Over a decade down the line, I now see the essence of storytelling. Stories make our lives easier; more exciting than it would be without them.
That’s why I highly applaud the new Geisha initiative dubbed Stories for Life. It seeks to help mothers spend more time with their kids. All that they need to do is to visit a supermarket, buy a Geisha bathing soap and check the sticker code.
How it works
Purchase Geisha bar soap and dial the USSD number found inside the sticker along with the code. Your profile will be updated and the points will be redeemed.
Once this is done, you will be able to either listen to the audio files via IVR and select one of the six stories (2 minute edited versions). You can also download the stories and you get a bounce back SMS with a mobisite link.
You can also go straight to the mobisite and enter the on-pack sticker code. You can then redeem points and this will enable you to access the library of stories in two versions, the long and the short.
Through the Stories For Life six-part series of stories, mothers can read to their children easily. Get the Geisha Stories For Life free by downloading the set of stories from your phone from the site www.geishastories.com or dialling *436*2#
