Agency: AMV BBDO
Client: New Kids Company
AMV BBDO has launched its Christmas campaign for Kids Company, which will raise money to help fund the annual Christmas Day event the charity stages to support over 1000 children.
Through impactful creative and innovative use of traditional media, the campaign encourages the public to donate £5 to help fund this year’s event, which provides gifts, food and company on Christmas Day for young Londoners whose circumstances preclude a traditional family celebration.
The campaign has been developed around the premise that ‘no child should be alone at Christmas’, using the physical and emotional loneliness often experienced by the vulnerable young people who turn to Kids Company as the creative inspiration.
Through a series of site-specific 6 sheet posters, AMV BBDO creative’s Paul Cohen and Mark Fairbanks have attempted to create the illusion of young kids alone in the everyday London landscape.
“If you saw a young child alone on the street you would wonder where their parent was and hopefully feel compelled to help or check they’re OK,” they said.
“We've produced a series of emotionally-charged, site-specific posters that are hard to ignore. The intention is that the children appear to be there in the street right in front of you. Hopefully they will strike a chord with the audience and encourage them to donate.”
The campaign will be supported by digital outdoor posters in 38 malls across the UK, a 30” radio ad, press insertions and a suite of digital display advertising.
All media was donated on a charitable basis thanks to the help of Clear Channel UK, Tower Hamlets Borough Council and PHD London.
