Toronto, ON (February 10 2015) - Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) has once again teamed up with leading brand direct response agency,Northern Lights Direct, on a new direct response campaign, currently on air nationwide.
Shot on location in Paraguay, the project titled “A Child’s Eyes” sheds light on the impoverished conditions affecting children in that country – and beyond.
“Child poverty continues to be a global issue that must be faced head-on,” says David Callan, Director, Marketing at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada. “We have chosen to join forces with Northern Lights Direct again because they are effective at inspiring hope in our viewers and putting out a call to action.”
Creating these commercials was an eye-opening and rewarding experience for Robert Ian French, President of Northern Lights Direct. "I commend CCFC for their tireless commitment towards easing child poverty around the world. As their direct response partner, our mission is to motivate people watching these stories to become child sponsors and see for themselves how fulfilling sponsorship can be.”
The direct response television campaign consists of 120- and 60-second spots which drives donors to a 1-800 number and URL (www.sponsorme.ca) to sponsor a child in need. Northern Lights Direct is also managing the Canadian television media buy.
