Paul McCartney and Jamie Oliver Team Up to Clear Landmines

 

Worked closely with Paul McCartney's web design team to create website hosted on www.PaulMcCartney.com The on-line initiative raised $30,000 in mostly $25 donations over seven days.

Created dinner menu pages featuring recipes from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver

Managed all aspects of live downloading throughout the promotion.

 

Initial design for Paul McCartney fundraiser.

Created concept and graphics - basically updating image of Paul McCartney character from the 1970s The Beatles cartoon show.

Although the design was approved in-house, McCartney's team did not want a nostalgic theme used as Paul embarked on a tour featuring new material.

AAM Website -- I took a text laden website and created a site with video clips, more dynamic content and easier navigation. The new site is easily updated and has a better overall web presence.

Published article in Fall 2008 Interdependent Magazine -- United Nation's Association's quarterly member publication -- detailing my trip to Bosnia Herzegovina and Croatia to meet with the people actually helped with AAM funding.

Survivor Story Cards - There was very little on the Adopt-A-Minefield site about  the people actually being helped.

I took reports we already had from the field and used them to create Survivor Story Cards, which we used on the website and as handouts at various AAM functions.

Designed and created handout for targeted jam band music festival audience. Used at inaugural event in our grassroots concert campaign where Adopt-A-Minefield set up an information booth at the four-day Gathering of the Vibes music festival on the beach in Bridgeport, Ct.

"Going Green" being "THE" buzzword cause of the day was used to point out how clearing landmines from contaminated lands is a green cause.
