CAUSE MARKETING CASE STUDY

Ad Council

Ad Council “Because of You” Campaigns. 

THE SITUATION

Because of You is a movement that encourages teens to reflect on the power of their words and actions and consider how they are affecting others. While only one-third of teens list bullying as a top concern, twice as many say they regularly experience behaviors like drama, teasing, and exclusion. The Ad Council worked with Hallmark to bring lessons around this topic into the classroom in a relatable way, using videos and activities.

HOW WE HELPED

Our team worked with the Ad Council to:

  • Create a Because of You in-school program to formalize the distribution of materials and inclusion of the message in classrooms
  • Increase awareness of the Because of You brand and campaign messaging among students and teachers
  • Integrate Hallmark through cards for distribution in classrooms and supplemental activities for students
