Detroit Mutual Aid was a campaign developed through National Firefighters Endowment to put life-saving equipment in the hands of the busiest fire department in the nation.
Leveraging our social properties and corporate relationships, we launched a collaborative campaign which generated support for Detroit Fire Department across six continents. Supporters changed their profile pictures to spread the word, purchased T-shirts, and selected equipment from wish-lists compiled from 14 different fire stations within the city of Detroit.
The campaign ended with over 25 volunteers, from Alaska to New York, descending on the iconic city to deliver over $150k in new equipment directly into the hands of the firefighters.
After an E-5 tornado ravaged the town of Moore, Oklahoma, I launched a campaign to help pay the insurance deductibles of firefighters who had lost their homes. I took a team out to deliver the funds and capture the story of the men and women who stayed on post serving their community, while their own families were in harm’s way.
We created a short documentary to highlight the selflessness and devotion of the emergency responders involved.
Superstorm Sandy left countless fire departments on the east coast without working equipment, further impeding the disaster response. Our first “big” project for National Firefighters Endowment, we only raised $5,000 in aid.
However, due to our unique position in the industry, we were able to implement a “sharing-economy” model to coordinate resources between fire departments nationally. National Firefighters Endowment played a key roll in the donation of three fire engines, $150k in radios, skilled manpower and several caches of other much-needed equipment.
Through mainly social channels, we were able to multiply that $5k in donations to supply approximately $210k in goods and services during a state of emergency.
The Thin Blue Line Visa was a partnership I created between Capital One and the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy of Sacramento. The symbol itself represents the thin blue line of officers that stand between chaos and order.
Using Facebook advertising, I quickly built a highly targeted and engaged community of both law enforcement officers and their supporters, 50k members strong. Within the first two months, two remarkable things happened.
1) Capital One put the program on pause for a week. At that time, their marketing team had yet to see such growth from social media. After meeting with the legal department to ensure compliance, Capital One green-lighted the project, saying, “Keep doing what you’re doing. You are miles ahead of us.”
2) By month two, The Blue Line card became the number one performing card in their micro-affinity channel.
At the end of year one, this program was responsible for increasing my client's gross revenue by 42%.
The Thin Blue Line card was also the genesis of the Thin “Red” Line Visa, which became the seed for National Firefighters Endowment.
