Make Poverty History - Creating an epidemic brand

This paper describes the 2005 campaign by the Comic Relief coalition to 'Make Poverty History'. It demonstrates how the unifying idea was built and communicated to key individuals attending the G8 conference, and how high-profile events, featuring 140 NGOs and figures such as Nelson Mandela, Bono and Sir Bob Geldof, were used to communicate the message, all with no budget.
