Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter
Forever a fan of the work the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS) does to save the 12,000 animals that come through their doors each year, idfive volunteered to help the shelter during the holiday season — a critical fundraising period. We created “Pay It Furward”, an integrated campaign highlighting the people and animals who depend on the kindness of donors. The campaign included a four-minute video viewed by tens of thousands of people, Milkbone “fortune cookies” wrapped with messages about BARCS fundraising and placed in Baltimore storefronts, billboard ads, emails to donors, a donation landing page, and cross-platform social media posts. Boosted by the nonprofit’s incredible army of advocates and brand champions, the campaign beat their #GivingTuesday fundraising expectations by more than 400% and helped bring in over $250,000 for the shelter in the month of December.
