United Way of Greater Milwaukee - Baby Can Wait

It seems that agency Serve Marketing from MilwaukeeUSA is fully into sports this summer. They showed it with the I want a strong baby campaign a few weeks ago.
Now they did it again but for a different client: Baby Can Wait.
The message: your life will change drastically if you become a teen parent.

The ads depict a high school basketball player and a cheerleader in action, both with baby carriers attached to them and the message “Think your life won’t change with a baby?” The ads also direct teens to BabyCanWait.com, connecting them to information and resources to help prevent pregnancy and promote healthy relationships.

Serve volunteer creative director, Gary Mueller: “We want these ads to make a lasting impact on teens, and by showing them all the things they would miss, we hope they think twice about the hard realities of teen pregnancy. Whether it’s playing basketball, cheerleading or just spending time with friends, when you have a baby as a teen, all of that will be over.”

The ads are strategically placed at bus shelters in areas with high teen pregnancy rates.

Previous editions from the Baby Can Wait campaign:
- What kind of man preys on underage girls?
- Pregnant at the Prom
- It isn’t a fairy tale, it’s rape
- Hoax: 2028 The Movie - It Finally Ends

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
