Ads with a cause: Creative Public Service Ads for change

Posted 9 months ago

 

Hunger is a global problem, but it is also hugely prevalent in India, with the country playing host to 212 million people suffering from starvation. Keeping this in mind, KFC has launched their “add Hope” buckets, pledging to contribute Rs. 5 from the sale of every bucket from its 300 stores across india.

This initiative is being shown through three short digital films. Two of them show children, trying to scrounge together some food, before eating the leftovers left in a KFC bucket. The third shows a father trying to do the same for his young daughter.

Using smart image recognition technology, smartphone users who have bought the bucket can have the content streamed directly to their devices.

This is a new and novel way to spread their message and raise awareness about a serious issue. Coupled with their pledge, it makes a step in the right direction for the food chain

How do you feel about these ads and the campaign? Let us know below!

  • Minal BPosted 9 months agoOh, it's simply brilliant, all this for a noble cause makes it more important and effective. An innovative way to have customers have content on their smart phones , especially the youth who each have their own smart phone, makes this a smart campaign indeed. I hope KFC makes this a long term campaign rather than a short term one.

  • christinePosted 6 months agoVery happy to hear about this global initiative taken by KFC. This hunger and starvation is a global problem which is very very difficult to solve. But minor changes can be made through each and every individual in their capacity.Big companies, food chains can take this a step higher if they make up their mind something serious about this issue. Very glad that KFC 's taken this initiative which I'm sure will touch the hearts of several others and I hope they also take a lesson out of this. ALL THE BEST to KFC once again.

Today there are people who can spend any amount for their loved items but still there is a big population in India who merely gets a single meal of the day. So it's really one of the great initiative taken by brands nowadays

  • Abhishek PariharPosted 5 months agoPandG group, ITC are running similar campaigns Its really soothing to know that KFC being a non-Indian brand is helping towards eradication of hunger from India such ads generate sense of responsibility in a customer, everytime he or she buys product of a brand because they feel that indirectly they are funding and becoming a part of a noble cause. best part of it is that this campaign is connected through cellular tech. so a smart move taken by utilizing current tech resources. Hope this campaign encourages other brands to do something which brings happiness to the lives of unprivileged. Such effort in the area of animal rights protection and rehabilitation by KFC would be a really appreciable move

  • arifd27Posted 1 month agoTrue
  • MeghaPosted 1 month agoOne of the most considerate ad campaigns of recent times. India has a large population who cannot make the ends meet and therefore end up starving beneath their thatches. On the other hand, we have a few millionaires who can feed the entire nation, if they had to. A recent Tamil movie named 'Kakkamuttai' has handled this subject with much grace. If the corporate world comes up with a paradigm shift towards their social commitment, the world would have been a more beautiful place to live in.
