CohnandJansen JWT made, this year, the fund raising campaign for SMURD (Romanian paramedics service). The campaign aims to determine the public to redirect 2% from the taxes they owe to the state in order to gather the necessary funding to buy an ambulance airplane.
This year’s campaign represents the next stage of an impressive story that started in 2009.
Foundation for SMURD represents, for CohnandJansen JWT, a very special account, bearing a big emotional load and a huge responsibility.
Last year, SMURD managed to raise 80% more funds than in 2009. In 2011, SMURD campaign has a clear finality: acquiring an ambulance plane for emergencies, that will be used for cases that need fast transportation on long distances.
There are a lot of serious medical cases that can be healed, cases that can be medically solved, but that depend on important variables: the distance that need to be covered in transporting the pacient, the time he/she has to get to a certain hopital, meteo conditions and others
Account Director Cohn&Jansen JWT
Taking in consideration those non-predictable, the creative concept covered naturally real situations and tried to underline realistically the need of an ambulance airplane for emergencies and the need of everyone’s donation. It is very important for Romanians to understand the importance of their donations and to perceive the fact that they can realize extraordinary things, that they can save human lives”,
Each year, we try that, through the fund raising campaign, to convince Romanians to be close to us in our efforts to save lives. This year, we started the campaign together with Cohnandjansen JWT and the other partners with a set target: acquiring an ambulance airplane for emergency cases.
Increasing awareness of public opinion and civil society of Foundation for SMURD’s objective and of the importance of SMURD’s activity allowed us to think at this next step: aquiring an ambulance airplane for emergencies. we hope we will have Romanians on our side also this year, until May 15th
