Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Recruit new volunteers for the charity foundation Diakonie Frankfurt.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Many people would like to help others, but they have never been challenged to do so. The campaign put the people in a situation where they had to make a decision: Am I going to help or not? That’s why we choose a simple and real scenario for our promotion. Three Omas (Grandmothers), the street and some every-day situations that a person of that age has to overcome. By helping the Omas, the people prooved not only to the Diakonie but also to themselves that they are the right ones for a voluntary service at the charity foundation Diakonie.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
Donating money for a good cause is easy to do for a lot of people. But committing to take the responsibility for a human, becoming a volunteer, is of quite a different nature. Not everybody can do it. To bring our concept alive we created an unusual team of promotion girls consisting of 3 incredibly charming Omas (grandma’s). With their staged actions our Omas showed the public that taking responsibility for a human being is in all of us. It’s natural and easy to help others.

Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
Our Omas gave away around 60 Flyers. The goal was to recruit about 10 new volunteers. 3 days after the campaign started the Diakonie had received 46 new applications for voluntary work. The campaign had a budget of 5000€ and the people involved in it did it voluntarily. Nevertheless, the campaign had a media coverage worth over 250.000€. Our Omas were featured in a number of web-sites, newspapers and even on TV. During the first weeks of the campaign www.help-the-oma.de had around 10.000 visitors per day.
