Young & Shand has injected some humour into the battle against cancer, hoping that people will shave to cure cancer and bad hair.
Brother Design is lending its award-winning design skills to a good cause in a new campaign for not-for-profit organisation Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) by launching a print campaign to raise awareness about ‘Feel Better’ month, which runs over the course of July. LGFB focuses on improving the self-esteems of cancer sufferers by teaching them make-up techniques in an effort to help them overcome the taxing toll that treatments take on the body. The make-up training sessions are held periodically at workshops, which cancer suffers can register for via the LGFB website.
In November last year, Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) got 12 celebrities to silently stare at a camera as part of the ‘silent treatment’ campaign. And now, only three months later, that silence is being broken with the stories of Kiwis who have decided to shave for cure. The integrated campaign, once again developed by .99 and brought to life by Blockhead Visual Effects, aims to spread awareness for the annual ‘Shave Week’ appeal that runs from 17 to 23 March.
Beat Bowel Cancer Aotearoa aims to get Kiwis to put their health first by encouraging them to talk about number twos. The ‘Give a crap’ video campaign, which features TV personality Nigel Latta and various other celebrities, is designed to make New Zealanders feel more comfortable about broaching the awkward subject of bowel movements in the hope that this will lead to early diagnosis of the disease.
