The film grossed over $213 million worldwide, received three Academy Award nominations and three Golden Globe Award nominations; the Narrator introduces four characters: Cinderella. The Witch took Rapunzel, she explains the curse will be lifted if she is brought four ingredients – "the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, the slipper as pure as gold" – in three days' time. All begin the journey into the woods: Jack to sell his beloved cow. Cinderella receives golden slippers from her mother's spirit. A Mysterious Man mocks Jack for valuing his cow more than a "sack of beans". Little Red meets a hungry Wolf, who persuades her to take a longer path and admire the beauty, with his own ulterior motives in mind; the Baker, followed by his Wife, meets Jack. They convince Jack that the beans found in the Baker's father's jacket are magic and trade them for the cow.

The Baker has qualms about their deceit. The Witch has raised Rapunzel in a tall tower accessible only by climbing Rapunzel's long, golden hair; the Baker, in pursuit of the red cape, rescues Little Red and her grandmother. Little Red rewards him with her cape, reflects on her experiences. Jack's Mother tosses his beans aside. Cinderella flees the Festival, pursued by another Prince, the Baker's Wife hides her. Spotting Cinderella's gold slippers, the Baker's Wife loses Milky White; the characters recite morals. Jack describes his adventure climbing the beanstalk, he gives the Baker gold stolen from the giants to buy back his cow, returns up the beanstalk to find more. Cinderella's Prince and Rapunzel's Prince, who are brothers, compare their unobtainable amours; the Baker's Wife overhears their talk of a girl with golden hair. She takes a piece of her hair; the Mysterious Man returns Milky White to the Baker. The Baker's Wife again fails to seize Cinderella's slippers; the Baker admits. Jack arrives with a hen that lays golden eggs.

The Witch discovers the Prince's demands Rapunzel stay sheltered from the world. She refuses, the Witch cuts off Rapunzel's hair and banishes her; the Mysterious Man gives the Baker money for another cow. Jack meets Little Red, now sporting knife, she goads him into returning to the Giant's home to retrieve the Giant's harp. Cinderella, torn between staying with her Prince or escaping, leaves him a slipper as a clue, trades shoes with the Baker's Wife; the Baker arrives with another cow. A great crash is heard, Jack's mother reports a dead Giant in her backyard, which no one seems to care about. Jack returns with a magic harp; the Witch discovers the new cow is useless, resurrects Milky White, fed the ingredients but fails to give milk. The Witch explains Rapunzel's hair will not work, the Mysterious Man offers corn silk instead; the Witch reveals the Mysterious Man is the Baker's father, she drinks – he falls dead, the curse is broken, the Witch regains her youth and beauty. Cinderella's Prince seeks the girl.

Cinderella becomes his bride. Rapunzel bears twins and is found by her Prince

Lady Garden Campaign

The Lady Garden Campaign is the social media movement set up by the Lady Garden Foundation. The Lady Garden Foundation was formed in 2014 in the United Kingdom, it is a national women's health charity which aims to raise awareness and funds for research into, treatment of, gynaecological cancers. The foundation was started by a group of high-profile women, all of whom had been affected by gynaecological cancer in some capacity. Among these women are Jenny Halpern Prince, Tamara Beckwith Veroni, Chloe Delevingne, Astrid Harbord, Kate Percival, Josephine Daniel, Mika Simmons and Bridget Barker, it notably launched the Lady Garden Campaign on social media during Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month in September 2015. Amber Le Bon, Jazzy De Lisser and Anais Gallagher were the faces of the campaign, with many other celebrities endorsing the charity and its Lady Garden Campaign. In 2016, Topshop partnered with the Lady Garden Foundation to sell merchandise to promote the charity and its campaigns.

Most notably Cara Delevingne was the face of this campaign. In 2017, the Lady Garden Foundation partnered with Selfridge's to sell t-shirts designed by Simeon Farrar in collaboration with Naomi Campbell, the Delevingne sisters, Suki Waterhouse and Charlotte Tilbury; the Lady Garden Foundation was launched in 2014 in order to raise funds and awareness of a number of gynaecological cancers. Many of the cancers, such as cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, womb cancer, vaginal cancer and vulval cancer, have high death rates in developed countries, due to a lack of understanding and treatments; the charity has created a number of fashionable items, such as hoodies, which have appeared in Hello! and Vanity Fair. Dr. Susana Banerjee at The Royal Marsden Hospital is one of the main beneficiaries of the funds raised by the charity, her treatment is aimed at targeted treatment for women with gynaecological cancers. The original mission of the charity was to raise £750,000 for Dr Banerjee over three years; this was achieved in early 2018 and the foundation now funds various research projects at The Royal Marsden.

Shortly after its establishment, the Lady Garden Foundation held a number of notable fundraising events to raise money for the cause. The events began in 2015, when they hosted a lunch for gynaecological cancer charities at Fortnum & Mason in London. In April 2016, the campaign held its first Lady Garden 5k, which took place in Battersea Park, London. Since 2015 onwards, various fashion icons and companies have designed accessories and clothing to promote the Fund and its campaigns, it notably signed an agreement with the retailer Topshop to sell Lady Garden hoodies during Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month. In early 2017, Marloe London designed a scarf for the Gynaecological Cancer Fund; the charity partnered with Selfridge's in 2017, more Stripe & Stare in November 2018. The Lady Garden Campaign was started by the charity as a social media campaign to raise awareness for numerous cancers, it wanted to promote screening and funding for the treatment of gynaecological cancers. Since 2015, the campaign has coordinated its promotional efforts around Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place in Britain every September.

The social media campaign was started after research suggested that over a third of women were too embarrassed to go to the doctor with gynaecological concerns in the United Kingdom. The campaign was launched in 2015, to raise awareness and funds for the treatment of gynaecological cancer, it was launched in conjunction with Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month in September. As soon as the social media campaign was launched, it saw huge celebrity endorsements online, from the likes of Ellie Goulding, Margot Robbie, Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on social media; the media suggested that the campaign went viral in the summer of 2015, reaching more than 40 million people on social media within 24 hours. After the campaign's launch in 2015, the Lady Garden Foundation carried out research to measure the impact of the cancer awareness campaign, they discovered that 81 percent of women exposed to the campaign were more aware of gynaecological health, while 59 percent were more aware of the symptoms of gynaecological cancers.

Canal Nou Internacional

Canal Nou Internacional was a Spanish television channel from the Valencian Community operated by Ràdio Televisió Valenciana. It was created with the intention of approaching Valencia to the valencian community around the world, as well as promoting it to the rest of citizens of those areas, thus its area of distribution was bigger than those of the three autonomous terrestrial broadcast channels and that its programming was a mix of content from the three regional channels, but with greater presence Canal Nou Dos content, as they are self-produced programs. These were joined by the reports, which are broadcast on Canal Nou and Canal Nou 24 as well as some sports; the channel was known as Canal Comunitat Valenciana until 5 May 2005, changing its name on that day to Televisió Valenciana Internacional. On 6 September 2010 the channel changed its name again, this time to Canal Nou International, its contents were exclusively in Valencian language. The reception of the channel could be made through the Hispasat satellite and the various cable TV operators, but by 16 July 2010 the channel broadcast through the Internet, ceasing its broadcasts by other platforms without notice due to accumulated debts with Telefónica de Sistemas.

On 1 March 2011 all references and links to the channel were removed from Radiotelevisió Valenciana's site, but the page where the broadcast could be followed is still active, broadcasting their original Canal Nou and Canal Nou Dos content and a test card broadcasting Ràdio Nou, when the contents broadcast by those channels cannot be streamed by Internet.

After three years with Cúcuta he joined Deportivo Cali during January 2010. However, he was released from the club at the end of, he joined Millonarios for the remainder of the 2010 season but only scored. In early 2011 he was sent on loan to newly promoted Itagüí Ditaires. While with Itagüí he recovered the form that made him a respected scorer in Colombia.

On October 1, 2011, Pajoy scored Itagüí's three goals in a 3–1 victory over Real Cartagena. In his one year at the club Pajoy helped lead the club to a 9th place overall finish and a second-place finish in Torneo Finalización, in which he was one of the top scorers with 10 goals in 17 matches. Pajoy signed with Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer on February 8, 2012. On August 16, 2012, Pajoy was traded with an international roster spot to D. C. United in exchange for Danny Cruz, he scored his first goal for United in a 4–2 win against Chicago one week later. On September 20, Pajoy's half-volley proved the difference in a 1–0 win at his old club. At the end of the 2013 season, Pajoy left DC, he would return to Colombian football for the 2014 season, signing with top flight side La Equidad on a one-year contract. Unable to find consistent playing time with the Bogotá-based club, he finished the season with just one goal from 20 league appearances. Following the expiry of his contract with La Equidad, Pajoy moved to Peru to sign for Unión Comercio.

Rediscovering his goalscoring form, Pajoy would finish the first phase of the 2015 season – the Torneo del Inca – with 7 goals from just 8 games, including 4 on his debut in a 4–2 win over Sport Loreto. However, he was unable to prevent the Nueva Cajamarca club from getting knocked out at the group stage.

Pajoy would remain among the league's top goalscorers for the rest of the 2015 Torneo Descentralizado, with 10 goals in 15 Clausura appearances. A hat-trick against bottom club Sport Loreto in the final round of fixtures would confirm his position as the league's top goalscorer with 25 goals in 39 games, though his team would fail to qualify for the Playoff Phase.
