Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Insights, strategy & the idea

Stockholm’s Stadmission helps the homeless of Stockholm. Being a small charity, they have a very limited budget to get their message out and ask for donations.


• Get the message out for free
• increase traffic to their web site
• Increase donations

Target Audiences
Primary: Bloggers, blog networks and media sites
Secondary: People in Stockholm who are willing to donate to charity.

The target audiences are familiar with Stockholm’s Stadsmissions work for the homeless, but does not support them regularly.

Bloggers and companies like to show they are doing something good. So, we are more likely to get their help if we reward them for helping out, and make them an active part of the campaign.

Creative Execution
Creative execution

We created a collection of homeless banners, in need of shelter on sites or blogs.
On the depressing looking site anyone could pick a banner, copy-paste a piece of code and embed it on their own site. When embedded, a click on the banner led to the donation page on



• Every blog and site got their name displayed in the banner they hosted.
• A counter in the banner displayed for how long they had been hosting it.
• The banner developed a warmer colour the more that clicked on it, and the longer it was hosted.

Campaign site

• The site got a boring and technical look to enhance the feeling that the banners needed a better place to stay.
• It also featured a top list of the sites with the longest hosting times and the banners with the most clicks.
