Judges applauded the multichannel, multigenerational approach of the 2014 top award winner, the Heal Children, Heal Detroit campaign by The Children’s Center (TCC) in Detroit. The campaign was impressive in its depth and breadth but also in its results. It received a 4.2 percent response rate and generated $90,000, with an average gift of $520. The cost to raise $1 was 11 cents.
The Heal Children, Heal Detroit campaign included:
To get the attention of Millennials, Gen X and Gen Y, the campaign also sponsored five pop-up restaurants with informational videos about the nonprofit and food by local chefs. During the charity’s Yellow Coaster event, diners were encouraged to take pictures of special TCC coasters in participating local restaurants and post them on social media.
