World Vision 2010 “Fight for 5” Campaign

The “Fight for 5” is World Vision Canada's annual campaign to save children under five years old from malnutrition and the related diseases and conditions that are the five leading causes of preventable child deaths.

Video, Part I

Our challenge in the fall of 2009 was to create a hard-hitting campaign that demonstrated both the urgency of the problem and the real and significant benefits donations would bring. The stories of children suffering from malnutrition were integral to the campaign’s direct mail, video, and online components. A small team of us traveled to the remote Turkana district of Northern Kenya to collect stories and gather footage of children and local World Vision experts for a video appeal narrated by Dave Toycen, President of World Vision Canada.

World Vision Haiti Emergency Campaign

The unthinkable devastation of the massive January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti spurred relief organizations to respond as quickly as possible. Within hours, MRM had created appeals across a variety of media to help fund World Vision Canada's relief efforts. We helped World Vision Canada raise $10 million in just 10 days, to fund their emergency assistance work that focused on bringing immediate relief (water, food, shelter, medical assistance) and bring protection to children and their families.
