The new popular app Vine can work like a mantra. It is the power of repetition with the six-second video loop.
The attempts from the British Kids Company demonstrate it.
It’s perfect for low budget campaigns thus for small charities.
Kids Company has launched this new campaign to raise awareness of maltreatment, neglect and abuse experienced by the thousands of children they support.
The scenes they show in these short clips represent three important facets of their work; supporting children in poverty, preventing neglect and providing hot nutritious meals for hungry children. And the call to action is clear in the final frame: “Text KIDS HELP to 70700”.
Vines are easy to share with Twitter. And therefore it has the viral opportunity.
And what the Kids Company really understands is that Vine and Twitter has it’s limitations. The share the background information together with all the Vine files on their homepage. That seems obvious but many charities forget that part of the campaign.
Great work Kids Company!
