Case Study - BLOOD DONATION SERVICE | MISSINGTYPE
CHALLENGE: "It's only noticed when it's missing!" The nationwide #MissingType campaign by the Red Cross Blood Donation Services aims to raise awareness of the need for blood donation in the population and to encourage active blood donation.
Since 15,000 blood donations are required every day in Germany and the demographic change makes it more and more difficult to acquire new donors, a solution to the problem must be found. A simple idea with a big impact emerges!
To represent the blood groups, over 400 companies, clubs and athletes remove the letters A, B, 0 in their names around World Blood Donor Day on June 14th, 2022, because "it's only noticed when it's missing".
Together with the blood donation services, we acquire Vanessa Mai and Leon Goretzka as ambassadors for the campaign. Well-known athletes, celebrities, clubs, companies as well as associations and events from our network accompany the campaign via their social media channels. The #MissingType campaign is published on our partners' far-reaching social media channels. In addition, we produce a commercial together with Monacoframe, place it in the TV landscape and thus ensure even more attention.
