"Be Careful What You Cut"
Fallon & Children's Defense Fund
This campaign is about bringing the real dangers of cutting child investments into sharp focus to build the public will and make the economic case to protect children from budget cuts. The Children's Defense Fund and Fallon, an ad agency, created “Be Careful What You Cut,” a set of three print ads, a microsite and a Facebook and Twitter embed application that allowed the public to overlay their existing profile picture with a childhood photo. The program sought to actively involve viewers and relied heavily upon these viewers sharing information via their social media platforms, as well as alternate routes. The microsite, becarefulwhatyoucut.com, urged viewers to use our infographics for their Facebook cover photos, petition their members of Congress and send information to local media.
