Canada Post has an online service that enables people to create their own stamps online, for little more than using a regular stamp. What Missing Children Canada does is to ask people to use this possibility to publish an lost child´s face in the stamp instead of using a personal image. They implement an online footer for emails too, with the same purpose.
You can find out more and create a stamp yourself in the campaign´s website.

Targetting to the specific audience you need to reach is very important in any advertising campaign, whether it is a commercial one, or aimed to social good. In this case, it is particularly important, not only being able to adress to a specific target, but there is also great interest in doing this only with that target, excluding the adult that may be with him at the time he or her is watching the ad, and could actually be his or her aggressor.
The campaign sorts the problem out in a very creative manner. It consists on a banner that contains the information about the telephone line that,because of the angle in which the eye needs to be to be able to see it, can only be seen from the point of view of a child.

After a brutal dog slaughter occurred in San Joaquin, Chile, carried out by municipality workers, the action taken was to upload a video to Youtube showing images of this actions and inviting people to download QR Code collars to put them on the stray dogs of San Joaquin. Which when scanned, denounced the events.
Thus, transforming the same dogs in a mean of protest.Thanks to the noise generated in the media, an investigation and a criminal complaint were achieved against the mayor of San Joaquin Sergio Echeverria, led by ProAnimal Chile, thanks to data received by the citizens and journalists.

This year was declared by the United Nations as the International Year of Water Cooperation. The initiative's goal is to raise awarness about the different issues related to water, and to promote colaboration in order to meet this challenges. This campaign, created by Nice and Serious, refers specifically to ways to reduce water usage. The website features different situations of everyday life in which we usually waste more water than we should, through an animated character that moves as the web site viewer scrolls down.

To know about the campaign, please watch the following video:
As child labor is a worldwide reality, the media chosen to reflect this situation was LinkedIn, one of the largest professional networks on the Internet. This idea, created by Coupé Buenos Aires agency and IURL digital agency, was born when it was detected that LinkedIn does not have a user age limit for creating a profile or generating the job search. Namely, any child can register as a candidate/independent worker without being stopped. The campaign is not intended to damage LinkedIn´s image. This site was simply chosen for being one of the world’s most important professional networks.
Several made-up profiles were open in order to activate this campaign. More than 50 children and 10 companies working with minors in different places of the world were placed on the site. Immediately, all children were connected to hundreds of thousand users through a professional request sent from the site. The people contacted received the request that, symbolically speaking, invited them to accept the reality of child labor or to continue ignoring it.
Professionals, executives, entrepreneurs and opinion liders from around the world have been contacted. The initiative has soon become a topic conversation on social networking sites. Thousands of people have shared the campaign in their walls, on Twitter and on blogs of different languages. International organizations and bodies have joined as well and the world media disseminated the news. The campaign has reached a large viralization with a low budget, generating great awareness results.
We need to start noticing that child labor affects millions of children around the world who do not have access to basic childhood rights. In the same way, it’s still expected that LinkedIn changes its application form making it suitable only for adults. It is intended that this change will apply to social reality as well, aiming to stop child labor going unnoticed.
The International Labor Organization most recent estimate shows that there are 215 million children victims of child labor and that over half of them are involved in its worst different ways, physical, psychological or moral abuse that will cause severe damages for the rest of their lives.
All the children have the right to be protected against exploitation, which hinders their own rights and general development. By entering the labor market prematurely, they are deprived from the access to education, not only for them but also for their families and communities. Education is extremely necessary to rise from the poverty cycle they are immersed in.
Today, there are thousands of companies that make use of child labor as valid currency directly as workforce in their own operations, or indirectly through their suppliers. Acknowledging this situation, each company can co-operate eradicating child labor by controlling their own workforce and suppliers. A childhood free from exploitation is our responsibility.
The children who work:
- Would be the fifth largest population in the world
- Are much more than the total of LinkedIn users
- Are the double of people who watch the Super Bowl.
- Are more than the inhabitants of Brazil.
- Are more people than Germany, England and France together.
