“F**k This – I’m Off to Greece” Charity Campaign Raffles Vacation to Greece

Posted by in Very Mix

One could claim the slogan of the charity campaign “F**k This – I’m Off to Greece” is not what it should be. Too rude? Too shocking? But that’s creativity, folks, no matter what. I personally think it is very original, it is for a good cause and thus for “Doctors of the World”, a well-known NGO in Greece.  Anyway, upon the initiative of some Greeks living in London,  UK-based creative agency Mother launched a campaign to shift Briton’s Olympic enthusiasm to the economic plight in Greece.

Greek Φ for F…. OMG!!!???

 The campaign based in social media is live and is rallying to persuade Britons to support Greek charity NGO “Doctors of the World” by buying a specially designed t-shit.

The campaign has much more to offer: A chance to win a holiday in Greece, worth 2,000 British Pound among all users who simply click “Like” to their Facebook Page.

“The social media based campaign entitled F**k This I’m Off To Greece is live now and is rallying for Britons to support Greece by buying specially designed t-shirts, and donating directly to the healthcare charity Doctors of the World, through the dedicated Facebook page. All users who simply like the page are in a bid with the chance of winning a two thousand pound holiday to Greece.
 
“We’re seeing a country [Greece] where pensioners are forced to rummage around for food in dustbins, with old men shooting themselves due to the economic meltdown there, and so we wanted to do something about it. The London Olympics has caused massive excitement here, and now The Games are almost over we want to get Brits to give something back to the forgotten mother of The Olympics” says Jim Bletsas, Design Director at Mother.
 
The charity Doctors of the World has a free healthcare drop-in clinic in Perama, Greece. Originally set up to help struggling migrants access healthcare, it is now seeing over 80% of Greek people, as the country’s health system is in collapse.
 
Nikitas Kanakis, President of Doctors of the World Green, said: “The numbers are shocking – around 20 percent of Greeks are living a desperate existence. The number of Greeks seeking survival at community kitchens and medical centres has quadrupled, the number of homeless and those in temporary shelter has tripled. We are talking about the start of a humanitarian crisis.”
 
Donations to the charity can be made online to a Just Giving page and via sales of a specially designed t-shirt both of which can be accessed through the campaign’s F**k This I’m Off to Greece Facebook page. The campaign is being run as non-profit and all the proceeds are going directly to Doctors of the World in Greece.
