Danielle Hayes




                                  Mission Statement


Our aim is to create events that will promote the new range at The Disney Store, they have

linked to a very important charity called Make a Wish. The new range of teddies will be

holding a gold star with the charities logo on it; these will be on sale in every Disney shop in

England. Disney is also holding in-store appearances from the characters, they will read

stories and have a professional photographs taken with each child at the small cost of £3; all

of which will go straight to the charity. Finally we are holding the bigger events which will be

the Disney Fun Fair, these will be held in six main parts of England’s working up the country.

The will stop in Southampton, London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds. Tickets

will be on Sale for £7 for adults and £5 for children. A third of all profits are going to The

Disney store; the rest will be donated straight to the charity.

   3. To put on fun fairs in five main cities in England

                                           Goals


     1.    By selling enough of the Make A Wish teddy’s, I am hoping that will make people

           remember the charity as it will be holding the gold star plus have the logo on it,

           this will hopefully encourage people to still done money every month to the

           children that need it.



     2.    By putting on fun fairs it will hopefully encourage parents to bring their children

           into the stores more often to buy them toys and clothes that they will enjoy.



     3.    To increase the brand image and reputation.



     4.    To gain coverage within magazines.

                          What we need to think about.

 1.    Who are we aiming towards, specific audience.

 2.    Background information.

 3.    The different ways of communicating.

 4.    10 steps public relations plan.

 5.    Need to think where I want my PR based: magazines, videos and the internet.

 6.    A crisis plan- show’s what could go wrong.

 7.    Find public goals and objectives.


                                         Audience.

 1.    Children between the ages of 5-10 will always try and convince their parents to buy

       them a toy or a magazine when they go into a shop.

 2.    They will also try and convince them to take them to fun places.

 3.    Mothers of young children. (when they want to get their children out of the house

        for the day.)


                                           Aiming.

Since so many children watch the Disney channel at a young age the adverts draw them into

thinking about what toys and events they want to go and see. Whilst the parents are

watching the TV with their children it will allow them to see not only the reaction of their

child but how close and cheap the event will be.

                              Make a Wish briefing sheet.

The charity was launched in 1986 and has granted over 6,400 wishes.


This year is a very special year for the Make A Wish foundation as 2011 is bringing them their 25th

anniversary. They are linking up with The Disney store to hold events throughout the spring/summer

seasons to raise extra money to hel p the children that need a boost in life.


The aim for 2011 is to raise £5.5 million pounds for the charity. Over 20,000 children in the UK are

living with life threatening illnesses; all of which deserve to have their wishes come true. This is

where Make a Wish foundation comes in by providing what could be the last happy memory for the

family. Their figures state that this year alone 1,200 children will turn to them to have their special

wish granted.


Their aim is to grant an extra 15 wishes a month by the end of 2012, taking the numbers from 70 to

85.


                   ‘Make a Wish is expert in wish-granting; it is all
                         that we do, each and every day.’

                                      Pest and Swot


I think with this campaign the main strengths is that it is easy to convince children they want

to do something but my main issue will be getting through to the parents as they are the

ones with the money to spend. It won’t be hard to convince the children that they want to

take part in our events; as long as we keep them fun and communicate enthusiastically with

them. I need to find a way of getting the parents involved; I will do this by going to local

schools and promoting the event; invite the schools to have an end of year school trip at the

fair, contact parents over social network groups and local newspapers. A slight weakness is

that to get the children involved I will need to try and promote to the correct audience; I will

send press releases to magazines such as tales from the Laughing palace and Vogue

Bambini; these are either aimed at young children or the parents of young children but

personally I think this will only attract a small audience. To prevent this I am also going to

contact local newspapers and magazines as we have a higher chance of attracting a wider

range of audiences.


This campaign opens up a lot of opportunities for the charity; Make a wish. It is a chance to

raise awareness of the charity whilst raise money so they can meet their goals. What better

way to do this than to team up with one of the biggest children stores in the world. It also

gives us the feeling that we are helping people with our work. With the good always comes

bad; our biggest threat will be other charity events that are taking place at the same; for

example KidsOut is a very similar charity to Make a Wish. They create happiness into

children’s lives. They are also holding events in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
Danielle Hayes




Hopefully with such a big store like The Disney store backing the charity we will be able to

hit our specific audiences and other event will not become a problem for us.


Being linked with the Disney Store will put Make a Wish a in a much better position; it will

raise awareness from customers that haven’t heard about the charity before creating a

whole new audience. Children love Disney therefor there is a higher potential of them

wanting to take part in these events; attracting more children will mean more adults will

take part in the events or even sign up to donate to the charity on a monthly basis.

Monthly Evaluation



There aren’t any events within the first month; it is mainly full of bookings. This month was
mainly about finding out what the audience would want out of the events to take part in
them. Visiting the school allows me to go straight to the source; what more could you want
than hearing from the child’s and parents mouth what they would think should take place.
This could have gone a lot worse; the children could have hated all of our ideas then we
would have been back at stage one; this is why our plan is to ask the children what they
want and the parents how much they would be willing to pay. Even if they don’t come to
any of the events we have already made them aware of the Make a Wish foundation; and
this is what we are here to do. When the bookings are made make sure there are back up
plans in case any of our contractors drop out at the very last minute; this way it will be a lot
easier to get someone to fill the spot rather than starting the process again. The first month
was quite an expensive month as we made a lot of booking for the upcoming events; in total
it came to £2,744.21.

Monthly Evaluation
Within the second month we gathered together more information and statistics on the
Disney Store to find out how much their taking were every weekend so we know what to
expect. We also created new flyers and poster; these were all created by us to save some
extra money so this will take a little while longer than usual. This was the first time we got in
contact with magazines and newspapers about our campaign. We managed to get everyone
involved from out destined magazines apart from Little Angels; in total ten people showed
up as we also sent out press releases to certain local newspapers as a backup plan in case
our main targets didn’t turn up. We gave them all a free booking for the story telling event
hoping that this will convince them to come along. This month was mainly about meetings
and getting people involved so it wasn’t too expensive; in total £1,176.00 has been spent.

Monthly Evaluation



This is the month where our events start; this month was slightly more difficult
than the rest as we were all quite anxious of our first event; it turned out quite
smoothly but didn’t have as many children involved as we had hoped. The
events after we had a Disney Store employee promoting on the day as an
emergency plan so we was sure that we made more of a profit. There was a lot
of travelling around within this month which hasn’t been added into the
budget. There was always part of our crew in the store for set up or an event
to make sure all the press are greeted respectfully and make sure there wasn’t
any problems; but this did mean that we all at some point had to travel from
Southampton to the other locations at that is where we are based. We had five
people from the press turn up to the events; they were all from local
magazines and newspapers so next month we need to find a way to attract
some of the higher market magazines along. Over all we spent £1,512.40 this
month minus the travel expenses for each event.

Monthly Evaluation



We had the final three store stories within this month, we sent the PR department on the
higher market magazines, such as Vogue Bambini; one of our Make a Wish teddies and a
booklet explaining how much the charity helps children. This seemed to help get them more
involved as this month we had ten press visitors attend our events; they were from a
mixture of high end and local magazines. All together we raised £3,717 on the story telling,
this would have been more if we had managed to get the maximum amount of children
through the door to start off with but our new promotional tactic helped encourage them.
This month we spent as minimal as possibly; only £197.40 was spent on meetings. This
doesn’t include our travel fees to and from the event. By the end of the month we had
started to plan our next batch of events; the fun fair. Straight away the social networking
sights were created as we proved the more promotional tactics the more customers we will
acquire.

Monthly Evaluation



This month was mainly full of planning and meeting for the funfair; this event seemed to
cost exceedingly more than the last with a massive £5,696.40 being spend on just setting up
the fairs. If one of these funfairs fails it could put a massive dent within the profit margins
therefore extra care had to be taken when booking each part. As an emergency plan we had
a spare contact list in case anyone dropped out so we could straight away fill the spot again
no matter how short notice it was. Everyone needed to be on the bull to make sure they
events were perfect. We were handing out flyers in each city every week to get as many
customers as possible through the gates. Even if people don’t turn up at least this way the
consumers have been made aware of the charity. We were quite lucky with the fun fair as it
was a massive hit with the public. We managed to get press coverage in Vogue Bambini and
Creative steps; which are both aimed at children and parents.

Monthly Evaluation

Throughout the last six weeks we have managed to get the companies names in eight
different magazines with only one bad review; which stated we let too many people in for
the size of the funfair as they had to queue for everything. Luckily we had technicians on site
to deal with the majority of the problem; for example in Bristol one of the main rides
stopped working for an hour. This caused many problems as people wanted to go on it but
thankfully we managed to get it sorted as quick as possible.




Overall we spent £11,428.21 out of the £12,000.00 budget that was agreed by The Disney
Store. Quiet a large portion of this budget will get earned back by selling the new range of
teddy bears and the percentage of entrance money that they earn from the funfairs.
Generally the campaign has worked out pretty well; at first it would have been nice if we
had fully booked slots at all six store stories but the funfair managed to make up for this;
gaining coverage from local newspapers in every city. The funfair was a big hit from the
children and parents. Throughout the six months we have managed to raise a massive
£26,250.00 for Make a Wish Foundation, we also managed to earn back £7.366 pounds to
The Disney Store purely based on their 33per cent of entrance fee. They have so far made a
profit of £3650 just on entrance fee and the Make a Wish Teddies.
