The Missing Children Society handles 50,000 reported cases every year yet receive no government funding support. As a result, they have limited financial resources for expansive search efforts.
Instead of an ad campaign we created Milk Carton 2.0: The World’s Most Valuable Social Network – a series of web and mobile innovations on social platforms that created a new media channel for sharing missing child alerts and involving the public in the search.Since it’s launch in 2012 we have grown from using a donated Facebook and Twitter functionality to also include Google search, Foursquare and Pinterest to expand the reach the moment a child is reported missing.
• Created a new media channel that reached 70% of all Canadians at no paid media cost.
• Directly responsible for assisting in the rescue of 6 missing children in the first 5 months alone.
