Campaign urges blood donations because you get a biscuit afterwards

From Australia: 'Biscuit' for the Australian Red Cross Blood Service by Cummins&Partners and The Sweet Shop

Campaign urges blood donations because you get a biscuit afterwards

A series of celebrity chefs—and one extremely famous cookie connoisseur—urge people to give blood by explaining that the biscuit/cookie they will get afterwards will taste amazing thanks to the knowledge that they're saving three lives. (For the record, the chefs are Matt Moran, Donna Hay, Adriano Zumbo, Neil Perry, Kylie Kwong and Gabriel Gaté. The cookie connoisseur is so famous he needs no introduction.)

Adam Ferrier, CSO at Cummins&Partners:

Often advertising doesn't increase peoples’ motivations to act, it simply reminds them to do so. That was where we started. Some people think giving blood is a hassle, or time consuming. We wanted to re-frame this and to make the act of giving blood seem easier and more accessible. 

The campaign includes broadcast, social media, activations, PR and in-centre collateral.
