Pay with Blood
An original “Pay with Blood” marketing campaign was initiated by the organizers for the first edition which turned out to have a very big and most of all positive impact on the community. In addition to generating awareness for the scarcity of blood donation in Romania, a total of 1,500 people donated blood, saving the lives of over 3100 people. In Romania, only 1,7% of the population donate blood, making Romania among the bottom three countries in Europe in terms of blood donation. The ‘Pay with Blood’ campaign was nominated in 5 categories in the competition issued by Golden Drum and won 2 Silver Drum prizes in the New, Innovative and Public Relations categories. Another award received for this campaign was from The European Awards for Creative Excellence, Gold in Media and Bronze in Public Relations.
