Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
To demonstrate the role of Red Cross in making a big difference in people's lives, especially the victims of natural disasters. And help drive volunteers in the Arab world.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
We show chaotic scenes of natural disasters in which the survivors look completely helpless.
A pull on the tab reveals one of the persons in the picture as a Red Cross volunteer.
Transforming a heartbreaking situation into one that is filled with hope.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Red Cross' mission is to restore hope into people's lives and the poster successfully communicates this in an engaging way.

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.
The direct mailer resulted in over 1,757 registrations on the website in less than a week. It also drove donations from high net-worth individuals who are too busy to donate their time, but willing to donate a generous sum of money.
