AMCP DONATES TO HURRICANE VICTIMS

The American Red Cross is doing an incredible job in helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  And, we at AMCP are showing our support for the American Red Cross creative team by donating $5,000 on behalf of the marketing and communication industry.

As multiple winners in the Hermes competition, the American Red Cross creative team demonstrates a level of excellence that is evidenced throughout the American Red Cross.

Today, AMCP’s board donated a total of $15,000 in the name of our members to organizations that are working to rebuild communities ravaged by storms, homelessness and unemployment. In addition to the American Red Cross, recipients also included The Salvation Army, local life shelters and missions, the YMCA and various charities.

As part of our mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of marketing and communication professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations.  Each year, the efforts of generous marketing and communication professionals are acknowledged through grants to the organizations that they help.

Over the past five years, AMCP has contributed about $85,000 to charities and nonprofits. That money was used for programs in homeless shelters, orphanages, day camps, community theaters, and art centers…and for educational endeavors for children, the elderly, and underprivileged. For information on previous recipients, you can visit our website, www.amcpros.com.

AVA Winner: Mullen

Winner: Mullen
Title of Entry: CENTURY 21 Moves Into SimCity  Social
Location: Boston, MA
Client: CENTURY 21
Category: 3c.Social Campaign

Boston based Mullen was looking to increase Century 21’s profile among consumers between the ages of 25-34. This coveted age group represents the largest share of homebuyers. How people shop for homes has drastically changed in recent years and Century 21 wanted an innovative way to tap into the seismic shift. Mullen created a digital campaign that integrated social media with the gaming community. Research shows that 81 million people play social games and that 27% of them are either buying homes or thinking about it. Mullen partnered with SimCity to put Century 21 in the game. Players could place Century 21 offices into their cities and win bonuses. Almost 200,000 gamers took advantage of the offer. The campaign also created a huge jump in Facebook likes and generated a number of media stories around the country.
