Describe the brief from the client
Help The Cara Program, a non-profit organisation empower motivated individuals affected by homelessness and poverty, have a second chance in life.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Raise awareness about The Cara Program showing that life is a matter of choice.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We created a simple postcard that invited you to choose between forming the word, 'Chief' or 'Thief' with the attached magnetic letters 'C' and 'T'.
When trying the letter 'C' the magnet repelled giving you no other option than choosing the letter 'T' which attracts to the one in the piece to complete the word, 'Thief'.
Other executions include: Hope/Dope and Broker/Broken.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Since the launch of the 'Choose' campaign, The Cara Program has increased its active donations by 8% and placed 209 individuals into permanent jobs.
