Akanksha, an NGO, needed teachers but didn’t have funds for advertising. Akanksha’s kids conducted activities to spread promotional messages for top celebrities at prominent public places. They then sent a video of these activities to the respective celebrities, asking them to spread a message for Akanksha in return. The celebrities tweeted about Akanksha’s need for teachers and the barter was complete. 18 million people were reached vial this initiative at no cost. This campaign was also shortlisted in the Promo & Activation category.
