Describe the objective of the promotion.
To raise funds for the League Against Cancer in a country (Peru) where is hard to conduct collections through bank deposits and where the Internet is not yet massively used for money transfers, generating consciouness around cancer prevention at the same time.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
1) We created a massive promotion: the VACCINE AGAINST CANCER. A real pharmaceutical bottle, with a code bar, containing a list of 10 tips on cancer prevention and being sold at FASA (the largest drugstore chain in Peru) at the incredibly affordable price of 1,60 USD. 2) We launched the promotion with big off- and on-line buzz, where a web page (www.vacunacontraelcancer.com.pe) offering a massive “on-line vaccination” consisting in downloading the video of a celebrity “vaccinating” you against cancer, i.e. giving you a prevention tip, played a paramount role.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Massive broadcast through the media and an increase of 42.7% in fundraising on the previous year in aid of the League. These results are fully audited by the League.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
Nowadays people are more and more unresponsive to traditional donation promotions (the ones that use tin collections), mainly because there's no significant, immediate pay-off for them. Instead of asking for money, we proposed our donators a product relevant per se; and that could be kept even as a souvenir. We faced them in a natural context (drugstores) letting them buy by themselves a high valued product (Vaccine Against Cancer) with tips for an incredibly promotional price, activating an increase of 42.7% of donations for the League atop previous year's results -and generating prevention awareness against cancer at the same time.
