Despite a tiny media budget, the campaign received enough media attention to help spread our message, exceeding 5 million earned impressions. Not only did tips increase by 27% overall, but the campaign generated a tip that led to the rescue of an underage victim. It was enough to thaw our cynical advertising hearts and renew our faith in the power of creativity.
