Increase general awareness for the charitable cause of Operation Christmas Child (OCC) through various channels of PR.
Trusted influencer campaigns and other traditional media provided exposure through a strong presence at special events in the community. As a byproduct of increased awareness, more shoe boxes were filled and delivered. All La-Z-Boy Lower Mainland locations partook in the efforts in building awareness in store while acting as a Drop Off Location collecting boxes from participating community members. Their four local stores collected just over 1000 shoeboxes, with Langley bringing in the most between all of the locations with 600+ dropped off. Snapchat OCC partnered with The Vancouver Giants by hosting a booth at a hockey game to build campaign awareness, distribute shoe boxes, and collect as well! Fun, branded, Snapchat filters were created for the use of a Vancouver Giants Hockey Game on October 23rd at the Langley Events Center along with the Amy Grant, Michael Smith, and Jordan Smith concert on November 18th played at the Abbotsford Centre.
