Hubbard Interactive created a plan that would document everything that was happening leading up to and during the 5k. Since not everyone could participate in the 5k, we used radio, social media and YouTube to bring the supportive feeling to life. The Hubbard social team, along with myTalk radio personality Bradley Traynor, traveled to Uganda to activate the event in person. Bradley endorsed the event on his talk show, Collen and Bradley, while the social team promoted “sending your heart to Uganda” on Facebook. Facebook fans were encouraged to comment on the American Refugee Facebook page with a positive message for the runners. Our strategist in Uganda wrote these comments on yellow hearts that were passed throughout the camp.
Hubbard’s team created a video series highlighting the groups’ ideas, along with a donation video that ran on YouTube using TrueView. All traffic was directed to a CrowdRise page where people could pick their team and donate directly.
