Our latest PR feature is for our client The Adventure Challenge on Good Morning America (GMA)!
The Adventure Challenge comes to the rescue eliminating the same old date nights, family game nights and bestie hang-out routines. Discover the book that’s been out on the market a little over a year and has already sold over 250,000 copies! Containing 50 mystery scratch-off activities, it comes in three editions meant for couples, friends and families. What types of creative adventures await? You won’t know until you scratch one off. No take-backsies please! The Adventure Challenge helps you explore outside your habits, dive deeper into your relationships and make meaningful memories.
Your adventure—should you choose to scratch it off—will come as a complete surprise, but the book still helps you plan in the process. You won’t know the exact challenge until you scratch it off, but you do get the following information ahead of time including a price range to expect from $0-50. (They can all be modified to fit within your budget.) You’re also given an ideal time of day/night to perform the activity and a time estimate of how long it will take to perform.
The Adventure Challenge’s Friends Edition and Family Edition were both featured on the GMA “Deals & Steals” segment. The Family Edition is ideal for kids ages 4-15 and for families of around 4-8 members. The Friends Edition is great for you, your bestie or your whole crew.
The Adventure Challenge doubles as a journal with a place to jot down your thoughts after each activity and has a place to include a small polaroid so you can visually capture each memory. Purchase the book by itself or as a camera bundle so you don’t miss a moment.
Check out The Adventure Challenge for the activity book full of scratch-offs that creates lasting memories.
Congrats to The Adventure Challenge!

Our latest PR feature is for our client Chocolate Pizza Company on Fox News Digital!
Chocolate Pizza Company is located in Central New York and known for its gourmet chocolate specialities. The segment features Connor Novak, the 16-year-old high school student working at the business, which is owned by his older brother Ryan Novak. Connor and his friends also employed at the chocolatier founded a program called “Everyone Deserves Chocolate.”
The business donates the chocolate and the students volunteer their time to make, package and distribute sweet treats to people in need. Connor and team completed their first project handcrafting 250 swirled Easter eggs and solid chocolate bunnies on the Chocolate Pizza Company production floor to give to their local food banks. To serve more residents in need, Chocolate Pizza Company will donate these Easter chocolates to two different area food banks. Participating students are already planning their next donation effort, Mother’s Day chocolate treats in May.
According to Connor, the project is about bringing chocolate and community service together for families in need.
“We know it’s just a small contribution but the food bank was excited to receive it and every little bit can help,” he said. “My friends and I thought that if we could make some unique chocolate treats and donate them to our local food bank then we could make Easter a little nicer for less fortunate families.”
Chocolate Pizza Co. owner Ryan Novak explains how unique this donation is because it puts something on the shelves of area food banks that people would not expect but really appreciate.
“When my younger brother approached me with the idea, I thought it would be an amazing idea for the company to support and something he and I could be part of together,” Ryan Novak said. “I started as a dishwasher when I was 15 years old and that work experience was important to me. I make a point to give young people a job and I find they are motivated, hard working and always thinking of ways to help in the community.”
Check out Chocolate Pizza Company for the Easter treats like its signature and trademarked Chocolate Pizza® and Peanut Butter Wings® and feel good purchasing from a chocolate business that gives back.
