Keds Kids has selected youth activists Khloe Thompson, Jordan Reeves, Rebekah Bruesehoff to kick off its 2020 brand ambassador program. Representing the company online and in-person, the girls will be sharing content on Instagram with their engaged audiences, as well as weighing in on new designs and contributing to brand events.
“To see them all interact so naturally together and become fast friends was such an inspiring experience for all of us at Keds Kids,” says Liz Bunnell, vice president of marketing for the kids’ division of Wolverine Worldwide, noting more collaborations with inspiring young women are in the pipeline. “We know today’s consumers will reward brands that stand for something more than just the product or service they are offering,” Bunnell adds, hinting at special plans for International Day of the Girl in October. “We are super excited about how this year’s program is going to evolve.”
