$50 Campaign

Ideation; Print, Web, and Exhibition Design; Social Media Strategy; Photography and Videography

Over 100 students of the Circle of Peace School in Kampala, Uganda, were asked to draw what they would buy with $50. With Givology, a non-profit organization, we created an online gallery and physical exhibition in New York City to sell each drawing and photo portrait for $50.

We also produced a well-received social media campaign by using Facebook, embeded video viral emails, and word-of-mouth marketing. $10,000 was raised through sales – 100% of the funds went to the school. The website generated over 100,000 visits and the online video over 50,000 views in two days.
