It will run on digital channels across the UK, from today until 30 October, and test two formats. A new donation telephone line has been set up to run with the campaign: it is 0800 038 1130 or people can text SAFE to 70007 for a guide to spotting children at risk.DTV’s co-founder Peter Muffett said: “Developing a strong enough proposition that works across many day-parts was the real challenge here – making the ad responsive may sound obvious but can often be overlooked. As we often find, sometimes the best way to acquire donors is not to ask for a donation.”Media agency MC&C managed the media buying element of the campaign.Watch the advertwww.barnardos.org.uk/BeSafe Howard Lake | 3 October 2011 | News Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
