To take the edge off of this week’s big election, Living Social has decked out its main office with Hello Kitty… Yes, you heard me correctly. Just think of the trendy 918 F Street NW location as the Japanese icon’s campaign headquarters.

The pop-up campaign will be open through November 6 from 10 am until 8 pm. Visitors can meet Hello Kitty and participate in giveaways and festive activities (including makeovers from Sephora. All proceeds from the pop-up shop will benefit the American Red Cross; other proceeds will be donated to 826DC, a local nonprofit that runs workshops to one-on-one tutoring sessions with the city’s public schools.

For more information on Hello Kitty’s campaign trip to DC, visit the event’s Facebook page.
