A cleaning tag

A cleaning tag

A new campaign by the French government has made its mark on some of Paris’ walls. Called the ‘clean tag concept’, social messages are stencilled on walls by cleaning  the surfaces rather than painting them. It promotes messages about social issues (helping the homeless), cultural issues(restoring historic monuments) and environmental issues(making the city cleaner).

Why it matters

By using tags in a “clean” perspective, the French state has taken into account the need for the communication format to match the message conveyed. When it comes to social causes, is making the most of urban culture the key to bringing further awareness to a younger audience?

Impulse giving

This holiday season, many non-profit organizations are relying on the same principle that makes you grab that bag of M&Ms at checkout. But this impulse purchase turns into impulse giving. Foundations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have partnered with busy holiday retailers like Target, K-Mart & Kay Jewellers to let you tack on a small donation to your final purchase total. Some retailers are also donating a portion of gift card proceeds to the children’s hospital.
