Clever Red Cross Ads.

Everyone knows about the Red Cross and their humanitarian efforts and I'm pretty sure you've seen their ads all over the place. Such as this one:



Creative, humorous, sticks in your head, makes me want to donate blood, perfect.

I'm also quite certain that everyone is aware of the disaster that struck Japan recently. This ad by Red Cross is unique in that you can use your Smartphone to donate money directly to the cause.



And if you haven't donated yet, you should. Even if you're a poor, starving University student (like me) every little bit helps.

  13. In case anyone is wondering, the second pic is a QR code, you need a QR reader app to be able to check it out!

    There are lots of free QR apps so you have no excuse, go donate :P

  15. Will donate blood. But isnt Japan wealthy enough to handle itself? I mean isnt it better to send men, rescueteams, foodpackages or something like that instead of money?
