Guerrilla marketing for Unicef

January 11, 2006 at 3:44 by Martina Comments

In Belgium, fashion chain C&A has run inside its stores a guerrilla marketing campaign to support Unicef. The initiative, created by Publicis Belgium, aimed at collecting money for the young victims of the recent terrible earthquake in Pakistan. As you can see from the pictures below, as series of clothes made out of Pakistani newspapers were hung around the store, featuring the message: “Is this the only thing homeless Pakistani children will wear this winter? Help them with a gift at the pay desk“.

    One of the hallmarks of Guerrilla Marketing is that instead of using a lot of money, it takes time, energy, imagination and knowledge. This campaign is a great example of that, will definitely get people’s attention and should be very successful. The campaign also shows that Guerrilla Marketing can be used in ways that are beyond what people would consider “marketing.”
