Top 10 Integrated Campaigns 2016

Good Note & hand-5

1 Bou Khalil: The good note

Supermarket chain Bou Khalil noticed Lebanese were no longer giving to beggars; they didn’t believe their money was being spent well. So the chain tasked J. Walter Thompson Beirut with creating The Good Note, a voucher worth LBP1,000 that could be handed to beggars instead of money, and spent on essentials.
