Following six successful years of their ‘How to Recycle a Goat’ insert, Christian Aid is testing a new insert titled ‘It takes faith, hope and dynamite’, produced by fundraising specialists Whitewater.John Ranford at Christian Aid, said: “We’re convinced the reason that our banker insert has worked so well is that the headline and outer image attracts people to open it and so we needed to make the test equally – if not more – appealing. The image of a stick of dynamite coupled with a variation on this well known Christian phrase does exactly this.”Christian Aid has used a range of titles for the insert such as BBC Wildlife and Christianity and Renewal. Although these have performed well over a long period of time, it was clear that the creative was beginning to lose its impact.

So we’ve taken a deliberately radical stance – namely that ‘faith and hope don’t add up to much without action’… If Christian Aid is to bring clean water to those villages in need, extreme physical solutions are often needed to get to the water trapped beneath the rock. “It’s a really positive, active message which we hope will engage the audience.” 15 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Christian Aid adopts explosive new approach to insert About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
