Results and Effectiveness
Kids Earth Hour drew massive media coverage to the tune of PHP11,655,685 in TV & radio publicity; PHP1,665,334 in PR; PHP1,600,000 in out-of-home exposure; and 33,978 page views online. All that, from a budget of two million pesos. 1,529 kids attended our main event and every single one pledged to engage in outdoor physical activities more often.
But the real value lies in what the campaign did for Sustagen Kid Milk’s brand image,
positioning it as not only a builder of strength and stamina in your child’s body when combined with physical activity, but also a builder of a better planet.
We approached the global organisation behind Earth Hour, WWF, and asked them to help us create KIDS EARTH HOUR, a massive event where kids could play outdoor games on the same day and time as Earth Hour.
Our campaign slogan: Save energy indoors. Use your energy outdoors.
We promoted the cause with TV plugs during cartoon programmes and a radio campaign where kids performed unplugged music. We gave out leaflets designed like sale ads that would instantly grab any mom’s attention. These were strategically placed inside cable TV bills. Ironically, we even promoted the cause on the Internet.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Sustagen Kid Milk has always been about building strength and stamina in each child.
But since kids today are participating in less outdoor physical activities, and more time indoors glued to their TVs, DVDs, videogames, and Internet, they are not getting the most out of drinking Sustagen Kid Milk. Meanwhile, moms have not been able to solve this problem.
So our goal was to increase outdoor physical activity amongst kids in order to increase the physical results gained from drinking Sustagen Kid Milk.
We had to convince these moms and their kids to unplug all electronics and play outdoors. So we gave them the biggest reason on earth: Saving the planet.
The Promo / PR Ad titled KIDS EARTH HOUR was done by Ace Saatchi & Saatchi advertising agency for brand: Sustagen in Philippines. It was released in the Feb 2010.
