Results and Effectiveness
Both Stores were a success and helped the Red Cross write some of the happiest stories ever. The fact that books cater to our imagination gave us the perfect tool reach our audience in the Christmas season. Hope, as a product once again struck a chord with the public. And the Store that sells Hope, now in a new format showed to be an excellent and inspiring gift alternative this year.
Last year we sold a product you could not see or touch but feel. This year we sold a product you could see but had to imagine.
The Store looked like a replica of a bookstore. But with a twist: all the pages in every book were blank. And each book had an inspiring title directly related to a cause (E.g. The Child that Learnt to Smile) and anyone who bought hope in the form of these books contributed to turning these stories true.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
After last year's success the Store+ that sells Hope evolved. A new concept, a new package. Hope again change the meaning of giving a gift. But this time in a completely different way. The objective was clear: help the Red Cross by getting donations for its main causes in Lisbon and Madrid. An alternative medium in every sense during one of the busies shopping seasons of the year, Christmas. Therefore a different and innovative medium was needed to stand out.
The Promo / PR Ad titled STORE+ STORIES OF HOPE was done by Leo Burnett Iberia advertising agency for product: Red Cross (brand: Red Cross) in Portugal. It was released in the Dec 2009.
