Ad 2 Orlando Seeks Local Nonprofit for Pro-Bono Marketing Campaign as Part of Public Service Initiative

ORLANDO, Fla. – (July 7, 2016) Ad 2 Orlando, a division of the American Advertising Federation comprised of advertising professionals ages 18–32, is currently accepting applications for its 2016–2017 public service client. The selected organization will receive a full-service, integrated marketing campaign completely pro-bono from Ad 2 Orlando’s nationally acclaimed, award-winning in-house digital agency.

Each year, Ad 2 chapters across the country select a local nonprofit and work with that organization to put together a complete marketing plan. These campaigns are not just theoretical — they are executed and seen through to completion, with the goal of making a real difference in each local community.

Ad 2 Orlando’s 2015-2016 client was Fairways for Warriors, a veterans charity organization that provides hope, healing and camaraderie for combat wounded veterans and their families. After identifying the specific needs of this amazing organization, Ad 2 Orlando strategized, designed and executed a full rebrand, website redesign and series of community awareness initiatives through digital, print, radio and out-of-home advertising as well as public relations tactics.

Upon completion of the campaign, Ad 2 Orlando garnered 300,000 paid media impressions, over $40,000 in donated media and more than $15,000 in earned media, valued at nearly $500,000. The campaign raised over $5,000 in donations in just one month and exceeded the goal number for new Fairways for Warriors veteran members in that same one-month period.
