Amnesty International takes over Tinder to promote women’s rights

It’s not the first time Tinder has featured in the world of charities and nonprofits - there was that social experiment by ASH (Action on Smoking & Health) that asked whether smoking is sexy (spoiler alert: it’s not); and then, there is the cringe-fest that is Humanitarians of Tinder.

Now Amnesty International wants in on the action, too. And, indeed, action is one thing Tinder, the popular hook-up app, is in abundance of.

In this campaign developed by digital agency Circul8 for Amnesty International Australia, they ask members of the public to sign-up for an account, change their profile picture to one of these below, and add the following caption: “Amnesty stands up for women’s rights, will you?”

And if you think hook-up apps and women’s rights aren’t compatible, think again. According to Tinder co-founder and CMO Justin Mateen, “Empowering women is a vital part of Tinder’s overall mission.”

This partnership certainly is a match! Amnesty Australia’s Director of Marketing and Fundraising, Peter Thomas, said, “This new collaboration between Tinder and Amnesty International Australia is another way of reaching a new audience and illustrating that support for women’s equality can take many forms. Tinder is not only helping build social networks and uniting people, it’s also helping promote interest and support for human rights.”

Human rights and human swipe-rights - what’s not to like?

Using the superficial nature of the “hookup” app Tinder, they created identical profiles of attractive people, with one difference: one version showed them smoking a cigarette, the other did not.

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…
