TORONTO, April 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PATTISON Outdoor, Canada’s leading Out-of-Home advertising company and its digital innovation arm, Fourthwall teamed up with Jungle Media to promote CARE Canada’s She Too movement in an interactive campaign that launched this week in Toronto’s PATH. In the execution, a PATTISON digital matrix is reframed as a digital donation wall, where passersby are offered an opportunity to directly engage with CARE’s overall mission. The She Too campaign is a part of CARE’s March4Women initiative, which aims to overcome poverty and discrimination by creating equal rights and opportunities for women and girls in developing countries.
“CARE’s She Too campaign is capturing the momentum of a global movement raising awareness and action for women everywhere. Not just in Hollywood or in North America, but in developing countries where women might not have a safe place to share their story and get support,” says Kasia Souchen, Digital Marketing Manager at CARE Canada. “Together with PATTISON, we’re eager to engage with Torontonians on this important issue and offer an easy way to make a real difference in the lives of women and girls in developing countries.”
Found in the Royal Bank Plaza of Toronto’s downtown PATH, CARE Canada’s four-week interactive stunt is a first for the charitable organization, and the Canadian Out-of-Home industry. With Fourthwall handling the production and installation, the “tap-to-donate” panel was designed to accept preset donations of $5 using a cashless payment terminal, accepting credit and debit cards as well as smart phone payments. A full-motion digital spot, vinyl poster and branded payment panel were also designed by Fourthwall to direct passing donors to the terminal. To complement the campaign, brand ambassadors from CARE Canada will be scheduled on-site for a portion of the campaign to answer any questions consumers may have about the organization and its work.
“We are proud to work with Jungle Media and support CARE Canada in their mission of bringing awareness to women across the globe,” says Dmitri Melamed, Vice President and General Manager of Fourthwall. “The cashless payment solution offers passersby who are in a hurry or who do not have exact change, the ability to make simple and quick donations to this great cause.”
“The digital stunt is a compelling aspect to this campaign,” says Catherine Ramsey, Media Planner at Jungle Media. “The simple contactless donation system bridges the gap between building impassioned awareness and making real change in the moment. We are thrilled to include this impactful execution as a part of our campaign this year.”
Appearing in the busy retail concourse of Toronto’s Royal Bank Plaza, this execution is a part of a larger, general awareness campaign in-market since March 1 that includes PATTISON Transit Interior Cards in Calgary, Ottawa and Toronto; PATH posters; TTC digital network creative, along with newspaper insertions, TV Closed Captioning placements, other Out-of-Home spots and digital display advertising.
