Along with the teams from ACTS and NOVUS, the objective was to help spread the word about the NOVUS Walk for Water in Langley. Raising awareness about the daily struggle of villagers in Uganda was accomplished by hosting a community event. People of all ages were given the opportunity to experience what villagers must endure everyday to collect water, a resource we take for granted. It was eye-opening for everybody we reached.
We saw the opportunity to increase attendance by ramping up PR efforts. Throughout the campaign, we reached out to media and influencers to help amplify the great cause. The coverage resulted in $34,688 of earned media. We used our ad spend to expand reach on social media plus further boost social media posts from influencers. Media coverage included Langley Advance and Langley Times. The Press Release was also shared with Vancouver Sun and Vancouver Province to put the event on their radar and build a relationship to benefit future pushes.
They definitely went out with a splash!
