What does green colour look like?

Boy: “Warden Uncle, how many colours are there?”
Warden Uncle: “Red, Blue, Yellow. Green…”
Boy: “What does green colour look like?”

This Bronze winner at the Cannes Lions 2007 in the category Film is my absolute favorite. This is art and although it’s about blind children this video makes me happy. Film shows a collage of blind school kids playing Holi (the Indian festival of colors). It ends with an appeal to donate one’s eyes.
The video is from the Eye Bank Association of India. Their mission is to continuously educate general public about preventing blindness caused due to corneal disorders and wherever cure is required facilitate availability of cornea in the shortest possible time. The Main Objective is to create awareness about eye donation and act as a resource center for all eye banks in India.
67 people (including the creators of this film) have agreed to donate their eyes after seeing this film. The number of donors kept on increasing with every passing week. By the end of the 4th week 1325 people had pledged to donate their eyes.

Update: The video is removed several times from YouTube. The version above is without subtitles.

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…
