Results and Effectiveness
- In a couple of weeks the group had up to 6,500 fans, and it is still growing with an average of 150 new fans per day. - The initiative has generated debate and more than 100 positive comments. - Thanks to a special option created to collect user´s personal data, send them information about the cause and the organisation and most importantly, enrol them as donors, 2,000 people have became 'more than fans'. - So far, we have obtained 350 new Action against Hunger members thanks to this action.

Creative Execution
We built on a successful phenomenon, that's reaching top hits on social nets in Spain: the humorous groups aimed at making fun on ladies’ topics, followed by millions of fans. We wanted to redirect all the interest theses groups stir towards a new one: A group created to bring awareness on the water issue. On March 22, the World Water Day, we created the group 'Ladies who see their children die because they don´t have clean water' on Facebook. With this twist from humour and trivial towards solidarity, this initiative promoted a supportive movement, awareness about this issue and collaboration. With a minimum budget we managed to reach many people as they joined our Facebook group as fans and 'more than fans'. We achieved major recognition, awareness on the issue and a movement of solidarity that built in donors and members to help solving the world water issue as much as we can.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Acción Contra el Hambre (Action against Hunger) wanted to make people aware of the world water issue. 1,100 million people have no access to clean water and 4 million people die of illnesses related to water. Most people don't even know. We wanted to grab people's attention towards this issue, create a supportive movement, and get people to participate. Target audience: General public, particularly women and men between 30-45, urban and interested in NGOs.
