LASTING FRIENDSHIP, HEARTFELT IMPACT
Best Buddies International needed to remodel how they engaged with their online community, and came to us looking to refine their brand & better align their mission to their audience.
Here's How We Did It
Together, we helped shape the Best Buddies brand to focus on enduring one-on-one friendships created through the organization’s global movement, and emphasized the lasting impact on parents, teachers, & buddies that small, personal connections – and donations – can make.
First, we focused our content strategy on the transformational power of friendship and inclusion, and grew Best Buddies' audience by more than [insert number] in 2016.
With substantially increased engagement, we then created an extended Cyber Monday/Giving Tuesday email campaign that featured the deeply personal stories of teenagers & buddies whose lives were permanently affected by Best Buddies' rich history of supportive youth leadership.
We honed in on the phenomenal power of friendship, and re-invigorated Best Buddies' identity & outreach on a global scale.
By encouraging donation matches & showcasing Best Buddies' amazing work through the eyes of its passionate volunteers, we generated more than [insert number] in email donations through our Giving Tuesday campaign.
