Kids are Tougher than the Streets
This case is about the toughest people in one of the toughest warzones. They’re not soldiers, cops or gangsters. They’re children. And they make the tough choice to defiantly reject crime on their streets. Instead, they choose hope by joining a safe-haven called Off The Street Club. Our “Hope is Tougher” campaign raised the most money in the Club’s history – 20% more than previous years and enough to keep 3,000 kids off the streets. And it proved that thoughtful strategy and communications can make a difference in people’s lives.

The passing of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 (aka the “Bathroom Bill”) threatened our state’s reputation and the livelihood of its citizens. Our multi-tiered effort kept the bill’s negative consequences top of mind and turned the tide of public opinion. We drove over half a billion earned media impressions in the fight against what became the single biggest issue that helped make Pat McCrory the first sitting governor in North Carolina’s history — Democrat or Republican — to be ousted on Election Day.

U.S. Air Force
Air Force Special Operations are grossly outspent and out-hyped by the Army Rangers and Navy SEALS. Few of the most elite prospects know an opportunity in the Air Force exists. To meet the needs of the nation, we had to increase awareness of Air Force Special Operations and challenge hard-to-reach prospects to see if they have what it takes. An immersive, integrated campaign, “We Need People Who Can Do This” put potential recruits in the middle of the action and drove a 203% increase in new Air Force Special Operators.
