Percy Bartley House Takes Off With A Bang


Ogilvy Cape Town has been hard at work in our continued support for our corporate social responsibility project, Percy Bartley House, an all-boys home in Woodstock. 2010 saw the project grow in leaps and bounds with a rejuvenation of the home. We collaborated with Write on Africa, getting local street artists to help paint the home – inspiring the boys of Percy Bartley House through art.

In 2011 we plan to continue with our original message of inspiration through art. We will be doing this by sponsoring art classes for the boys in the home, helping them to grow in this area and express themselves through art and colour.

A long-term project that we have set our sights on for the home is to re-build the burnt down section. In doing this we will be creating more rooms for new boys to join the home as well as an entertainment area. This will also result in bare walls, which will act as blank canvases for more bright, inspirational art, this time involving the Percy Bartley House residents too.

In order for this project to move forward, fundraising will need to happen and your support would be much appreciated. On the 19th July we will be screen the Cape Town premiere of The Bang Bang Club movie at The Labia, on Orange – tickets will be R50, and drinks and snacks will be served prior to the 8:30pm screening.

Your support and attendance would be greatly appreciated. Contact victoria.tatham@ogilvy.co.za if you are interested in purchasing tickets.

Kiwi: Kiwi Takkie Brite Campaign

Winner, Vusi Nhlapo, with runner-up, Patricia Radebe, and the Kiwi team.Vusi-Nhlapo-at-work-1024x681

In line with Kiwi’s brand ideals of dignity, hard work and community upliftment, our latest campaign for the company stretched far beyond the requirement of building brand awareness, to making a significant difference in the lives of two struggling community members.

Set up as a competition, two lucky finalists were given the opportunity to each run their own business, in the form of a Kiwi Takkie Brite wash station (based on the concept of the handy shoe shine station), while at the same time acting as brand ambassadors for the product.

Set up at the Randburg and Vereeniging taxi ranks, the two contestants worked against each other in competition for the title of the Ultimate Kiwi Bozza (bozza meaning boss) as well as for a bursary to study business and R20 000 in startup capital.

This ground-breaking activation served as an impactful experiment that Ogilvy Cape Town and Kiwi hope to roll out further in the future.
