This was such a beautiful project to work on. It all started with the request from Dubai Cares to develop their yearly fundraising campaign, but it became something much more meaningful. Something that didn't just raise millions of dirhams in donations but also helped change the perception of children in developing countries. Next to that, it was a masterclass in integration of offline and online media, with press, outdoor, radio, in-mall activations, YouTube tutorials and an Instagram activation working hand in hand to create something truly groundbreaking in the Dubai NGO landscape. Take a look at the case study below for the bigger picture. The tutorials and images were shot in Tanzania and Sri Lanka.
