When campaigns about the plight of young people suffering from preventable illnesses become indistinguishable from commercials with talking dogs, donkeys and the like, you know you’re in a mirky world of charity campaigning that has tended to beat a very old and tired drum.
Save the Children‘s No Child Born To Die campaign is different. It uses a compelling insight into a common, yet commonly ignored subject. It’s emotive, cinematic and utterly compelling, which is why unlike so many of its predecessors, it works.
This week we hosted our second TWAC event for the third sector in partnership with Timebank andLegal & General. We headed down to 1 London Bridge at the crack of dawn to talk about change and how to respond to it and are pleased to say it was an open and lively debate on the challenges and how to deal with them.
From ‘Big Society’ to recession, the Not for Profit sector has had to rethink everything from service delivery with 50% less funding to retaining a prominent position in the hearts and minds of Joe Public.

On February 24th this year a few friends gathered together for a spot of fundraising, at a night called Love4Haiti. Our aim? To raise as much money as we could and gather supplies for the people of Haiti.
The night culminated in ‘rock your socks off’ performances from artists such as Ty, Natty, Soweto Kinch and Zena Edwards and several large bag full’s of supplies. The grand total raised through ticket and raffle sales was £2500.
But it doesn’t stop here, United Haitians in the UK – our partnering charity – still need your support, so see how you can continue to contribute.Now we couldn’t let so much talent under one roof and night of such good vibes go by without pressing the record button. For a sneak peak of the promo of the night, have a peep at the video.
We’re on a quest to keep these events in the public consciousness, as out of sight should never mean out of mind.
Hell, you need a shovel to find any updated content of the event on the BBC website, but Non-Format have ensured that their Healing Haiti t-shirt, designed for HealingHaiti.org sits right on the top of the shelf on their website.Pennies in heaven for NF directors Kjell and Jon.
None of you will be unaware of the recent devastation of the 7.1 magnitude earthquake hitting Haiti and its capital Port-au-Prince.To support the relief efforts, The Poster Cause Project are selling a series of posters (2 of which we’ve shown above).
All posters are Full Color 6″ x 11″ print on coated stock, and 100% of the profits from the prints will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. For more info, please go here.
